Episode 140: Beyond the Pill
with Dr. Jolene Brighten
Hormonal birth control pills can mean freedom from unwanted pregnancy, but this freedom comes at a cost. These days, hormonal based birth control pills are commonly prescribed for symptoms from painful periods to acne, without much discussion of possible side effects, alternative treatments, and other non-hormonal methods for preventing unwanted pregnancies. Dr. Jolene Brighten spent years working with women identifying Post-Birth Control Syndrome, and then learning how to help women heal from use of hormonal birth control.
On today’s episode we discuss…
- controlling vs. listening to your natural cycles
- the side effects every woman considering or taking The Pill should know
- how our symptoms are are signals from the body and why masking them might not be a great idea
