Are you scared of what will happen if you ditch or try breaking up with hormonal birth control (HBC)? Because I’m sure you’ve heard the horror stories about post-birth control syndrome… 🤦♀️
what about all of the magical ✨ things that can happen when we break up with HBC the easy way?
The way we come off HBC is crucial ‼️ Most forms of HBC work by shutting down ovulation (except for the hormonal IUD), and this causes a big disconnect between the brain and the ovaries.
If you picture ovulation and our cycle being controlled by a switchboard and a bunch of buttons and levers – when we add HBC to the system all of the switches, leavers, and buttons are turned to the off position.
When we come off of HBC, everything is still “off” so one of two things will typically happen – it takes a whiiiiile for the body to get the memo that its time to start having a natural cycle OR it “shocks” the system and we go into overdrive, producing too many hormones. Aaaand that’s usually why we get those wild symptoms!
Breaking up with Hormonal Birth Control the easy way helps that transition go a lot smoother, making it much more seamless. We can go through this transition in partnership 👯♀️ with our bodies by assisting it in the detoxification and helping it reestablish the communication between the brain and the ovaries.
