This video is years old but still very applicable and important, especially in a post Roe v Wade world. This is a 30 minute video with tons of info. Even if you just skim through. The last 10 minutes is on how to support your body coming off of hormonal birth control.
Let's dive into the birth control conversation. We are fertile 2-6 days a month. Let that sink in... we are fertile less that 1 week out of every month and yet we have a lifetime of birth control pushed on us from the moment our cycle starts until the moment it ends. That is CRAZY.
To me this takes away Body Sovereignty and says, "You can't trust your natural ability to learn your body, only the medical industrial complex knows how to take care of you". But what about all the other stuff? Like acne, headaches, mood swings, etc.? Yeah, trust me, there are much better ways to support those messages your body is sending you then synthetic hormones.
Listen, if birth control works for you, i am absolutely NOT judging you. I was on it for years and have tried every single one available. This message is for anyone who is curious about coming off of birth control or just learning a little bit more about what cycle tracking could do for them.
