If so, you’re not alone! 58% of US women use hormonal birth control for a purpose other than contraception. Did you go on birth control hoping it would fix your period problems?
🩸Irregular cycles, heavy bleeds, cramps, acne, hormone headaches, and whatever other period problems you can name – the typical solution offered is hormonal birth control.
The problem is, HBC isn’t addressing the ROOT issue, it is just masking the problem and being used as a bandaid to treat *symptoms*, which in-turn can end up creating more illness.
It can also lead to a lot of fear surrounding our cycles as well as disconnect from our bodies.
If you’re hanging out here, you’re probably aware by now that HBC is pretty 💩 for our health and finding yourself weighing your options:
1. Be on hormonal birth control
2. Deal with debilitating period problems
What if I could convince you that there’s a third option?
What if your cycle could feel GOOD?✨
What if I handed you a roadmap with step-by-step instructions that led you to body literacy and balanced hormones without having to be on the pill?
