Maybe you’ve been on birth control since your cycles began,
or you’re still on it and feel nervous or unsure about coming off.
Maybe you’ve been off of the pill for a while now and are wobbling through various symptoms that seem unmanageable.
Your story is always welcome here.
And if there’s one thing I know about birth control it is this:
it is sold to women as an option that allows us more choice, more independence, and more predictability. But what they don’t tell us is what we’ll be sacrificing to make that choice.
There are rare instances where birth control is needed. But in most cases, what a woman needs is honest education about her body, her cycle, and a much wider (and much gentler) variety of options to choose from to support her reproductive health.
Birth control is often sold as a quick ‘fix’ to hormonal imbalances, like irregular periods or painful periods. But the quick fix can give a woman more issues than she started with. And most of us find that, when coming off of the pill, symptoms return even stronger than they were before anyway.
What does this tell us?
This tells us that the body wants to be heard.
She wants to be witnessed.
She wants to be known.
She doesn’t want her voice to be covered up.
This tells us that the decision to come off of birth control will ask you for your patience, your kindness, and your love as your body and cycle rebalance. And you will find balance. Your body is incredibly wise and powerful. It just needs you to be on board with you.
There are real, completely natural, completely effective, and long-term solutions to hormonal imbalances that don’t require you to alter your natural cycles or suppress your body’s symptoms.
