Lets talk about Post Birth Control Syndrome, are you thinking of coming off birth control? You are probably nervous about the side effects that may come with it… or from the very first reason why you were put on them. Birth control is usually given to women at child barring ages to ‘fix’ symptoms and put a band aid on your concerns. Most likely, if you have suffered from acne, PMS, heavy periods, breast tenderness, Fibroids, PCOS, Endometriosis, irregular periods, severe cramps etc., your MD and gynaecologist have suggested for you go on the pill to mask those symptoms.
That’s okay, you didn’t know any better options at the time.
Those didn’t exactly fix your problems, but simply put a time stop on them – best case scenario. However, most likely, when you discontinue birth control, your body doesn’t properly restore the hormonal pathways, or it takes longer than expected. Worse case scenario is that you have it much worse than before, with the hormones playing a big toll on your body, skin, liver, thyroid, uterus and ovaries.
Maybe you have already made the move and got off your synthetic hormones!
Either way, Naturopathic Medicine can help you.
