All About Birth Control! Side Effects, Natural Options, How To Transition

by | May 18, 2018 | ketoforwomen

Have you got any questions about birth control? As women, it’s certainly a very important topic that we need to chat about. There are just so many options out there and I want to empower you to make the best decision for YOU.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The reason why most physicians prescribe the birth control pill
  • The side effects of using the birth control pills
  • The risks of using IUD
  • Natural family planning (NFP) or fertility awareness method (FAM) ? the safer birth control alternative
  • How to know when you’re ovulating

Key Takeaways:

  • In a lot of cases, taking the birth control pill is like putting a Band-Aid on your hormonal issues.
  • Your menstrual cycle or lack thereof is one way for you to gauge your health status. But if you’re using birth control, you can’t really do that.
  • When you’re on the birth control pill over a period of time, your personality changes and you become more moody and irritable.
  • Women on the birth control pill have a higher risk of cancer, such as breast, ovarian, cervical, liver, and uterine cancer.
  • A ketogenic diet is going to help a lot when you get off the birth control pill or have your IUD removed.

Action Steps:

  • Consider all the possible side-effects before deciding to use the birth control pill or the IUD.
  • Talk to your doctor if you decide to get off the pill or have your IUD removed.
  • Reduce the amount of stress that you can to help your hormones get back into balance.
  • Learn the natural family planning or the fertility awareness method

Shawn says:

“Birth control options don’t fix your hormonal issues.” 

“You’re not doing anything to heal your body by being on birth control.”
