Contraception or Deception

HT3_9z

Did you know that thousands of pregnancies occur whilst women are taking the pill?

The pill isn’t as affective as we are lead to believe.  And whilst we are told it is completely safe to take, it is only now, generations on, that we are discovering this to be very far from the truth.

Today Nat sits with Adele to share her knowledge on the contraceptive pill, why is isn’t as safe as we think, why women are still falling pregnant whilst taking it and why the babies who are conceived whilst there mothers are on the pill need great care.

This isn’t stuff your GP can necessarily tell you because they too are lead to believe it is a great option for many. But as you’ll hear today, we need to get back to basics, understand what our bodies are telling us and reconnect with our bodies.  This is one segment we are hoping you’ll share – all women need to know this stuff to make better health decisions for the future of their fertility.

    Hi Guys

    I will be sharing this, and giving as many women as I can the opportunity to be informed.

    Over the years I have had nothing but trouble with the pill, uncontrollable thrush, loss of sex drive (isn’t that why we take it?!), uncontrollable Mirgraines with visual aura’s and generally feeling depressed.

    I am 29 now and have been off the pill for some time and I ENJOY having a strong relationship with my body. Its empowering and something so many girls and women will not experience.

    Love your work

    Hi ladies :)

    Loved this ep! It’s because of Nat that I looked into what being on the pill was doing and subsequently stopped taking it. Was on it for 5 years having been prescribed outright one of the heaviest doses as a teenager for acne.. Didn’t realise that the dry skin, migraines, lack of sex drive and whole host of other issues that developed over the years were anything to do with the pill as my doctors all led me to believe it was the most normal and healthy thing in the world – so thanks for spreading the message! I’ve been off it for about three months now and still haven’t had a period, plus awful acne.. This ep was a great reminder as to the struggle my poor body is going through to get back on track which is really helpful since at times it freaks me out and gets me down and I wonder if going of the pill was the right call!!! Thanks girls, esp Nat for all you do. :)

    Thanks for this great information, a lot of it is new to many of us I’m sure. Nat are you able to explain why the bleed you get while on the pill seems just the same as a regular period? It seems like such a coincidence (not that i’m doubting what you’re saying, just really curious!).

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely confused
    .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
