Back today with a Q&A! We get sooooo many questions about birth control and whether they are “good or bad” for you. We dig in to the risks (i.e. stroke, clotting, inflammation, oxidative stress, nutrient deficiencies) and the impact on other hormones (progesterone, thyroid, gut health, ghrelin, etc.) and how you can know what’s best for you. As always, no judgement from us AT ALL! We aim in this show to give you all the options and talk about the stuff your prescriber often doesn’t as well as charge all of our listeners with educating young girls about their options.

 

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Pill in particular is that almost 60% of women are NOT using it solely for contraception but to manage other issues such as acne, heavy bleeding, irregular periods, PMS mood issues or headaches and we want you to know you have more options than the Pill! And in the case of these non-contraception issues the options are BETTER as the Pill will not treat any part of the underlying cause (great at symptom management in many cases but not the cause) and those issues are still there and often times worse after coming off the Pill.  Juicy conversation for sure! We also field a “what do I do when my kitchen is being renovated and I can’t cook for 3 months?” questions and how to start to wean a reluctant toddler.

 

As always, keep those questions coming to bettereverydaypodcast@gmail.com!  Follow us on Facebook  together or keep up with Dr Brooke here and Sarah here.
