Birth Control Pills: What You Must Know About Them And A Better Alternative

Here’s a scenario that I see happen all to often: you have hormone imbalances, like PCOS, irregular periods and fertility issues. You’re told to start taking birth control pills to regulate your hormones.

You take them and feel worse. Or, you take them and you still have your hormonal imbalances. Or, the moment you stop taking them, your body goes out of balance and you feel worse than when you first started taking them.

The birth control pill has now been around for nearly 60 years. Today, it is taken by around 100 million women worldwide.

How exactly do contraceptive pills work? Well the pill interferes with your body’s normal hormone production with the use of synthetic hormones estrogen and progestin.

Watch my latest video to find out the truth about birth control pills, and an alternative way that you can use to balance your hormones instead that’s both natural and safe.

What you must know about birth control pills

This is what contraceptive pills do when you take them:

  • They stops your pituitary gland from making FSH and luteinizing hormone so ovulation cannot take place.
  • They cause the lining of the uterus to thicken and so makes it more difficult for conception to take place.

As well as contraception, birth control pills are also used to treat women who suffer from acne, PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and other hormone imbalances.

Birth control pills risks

Like many drugs that are used in modern medicine, birth control pills come with health risks. These include:

  • An increased risk of suffering from a stroke (1)
  • An increased risk of suffering from a heart attack (1)
  • Developing blood clots (1)
  • Developing liver tumors (1)
  • And, in very rare cases, even dying. (1)

A recent study from Denmark has also found that women who use hormone releasing birth control methods that include the pill have an  increased risk of developing breast cancer. (2)

In addition to this, taking the pill has also been linked to:

  • Increased inflammation and insulin levels (3)
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Fertility challenges through a reduction in available eggs in the ovarian reserve (4)
  • Shrinkage in specific areas of the brain that can then cause anxiety (5)
  • A higher risk of suffering from depression (6)
  • A deficiency in a number of nutrients, such as the B vitamins (riboflavin, B6, B12, and folic acid), vitamin C, magnesium, and zinc (7)
  • And even an increased risk of gum disease has been linked with being on the pill. (8)

The good news about all this? You can actually restore your hormonal balance naturally and avoid going on the birth control pill. You can also put into practice a diet and lifestyle that can help you reverse the damage that’s been done to your body due to taking the pill.

    If you take birth control pills, you can’t get pregnant. Have children.

    go on the coil or use condoms, why should woman have to suffer for men’s selfish behaviour? The pills may harm you.

      It’s not men’s selfish behaviour, i do not want children so I decided to go on birth control. Women can choose to do it for themselves.

      Amanda, what do you want to achieve with it?

        @Rawsomehealthy The “Doctor’s” say I need to take them. I had a complete hysterectomy 5 months ago. I never started anything. I don’t like medicine. I’m afraid of side effects from the hormone therapy. Haven’t had much trouble. A few hot flashes. Just started a vegan diet 3 weeks ago. Trying to get as healthy as I can.

    What’s an alternative to the pill if you dont want to get pregnant?

    •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

      This video was for people who are advised birth control pills to bring their hormones into balance (and why it’s not a good idea to do it). Contraception is another topic. I track my cycle personally.

    excellent advice and so true! Keep up the good work!

      Thank you!
