Let's Chat about Birth Control - Part Two

Although *thankfully* the topic of fertility and birth control is getting more and more mainstream attention in recent years, I think most women still feel a lot of pressure when it comes to taking "the pill" and either aren't aware of or don't feel comfortable considering the other options available to them.

Does Fertility Awareness Method Work?

Before we dive in I want to say this — many people, including doctors, are quick to dismiss this method, claiming that women are too lazy or too easily confused by their own bodies to successfully use this method.

I disagree.

My experience is that women are motivated to understand their body and prevent pregnancy. And I would argue that the only person who truly understands your body is you. Instead of dismissing women, doctors should be teaching them how their body works and the signs and symptoms of healthy hormones.

Natural Bith Control? ((Daysy Update & Commonly Asked Questions))

I am back to share how our relationship is going thus far. We’re nearly three months in and the newlywed phase hasn’t ended. I am so grateful that we found each other. My hormones are regulating themselves since getting my IUD out and I am finally feeling like myself again!

DISCOVERING DAYSY: MY FERTILITY MONITOR UPDATE – THREE MONTHS LATER

As I mentioned in part 1 of my review I’m not generally interested in new technological devices. The “newest thing” is generally about making money by selling people technologies that they don’t need. After reading about Daysy and then trying it myself, I can honestly say that in my opinion Daysy is different. Daysy is designed to empower the consumers (women) by helping them to understand their own bodies and their own power.

Trying to Conceive? 7 High-Tech Fertility Monitors to Try

For at least the length of recorded history, humans have been attempting to plan and prevent pregnancy. From the practice of drinking lead in hopes of preventing pregnancy in ancient China, to dumping water on women to boost fertility in Hungary, there's always some wives' tale circulating about how women can harness their reproductive cycle.

Daysy - My Path To a Natural Pregnancy Preventer

The Pill and Your Mood

What if I told you that a product is available that can interfere with your hormones to the extent that your daily and monthly rhythms are no longer operational? And because you will no longer have functional brain to ovary signaling, you will likely avoid conceiving if you have sex during what would otherwise have been your 6 fertile days a month. Of course this product’s hormonal effects also leave you with the sense that everything is stable and predictable which is something like turning the white noise up so loud that you don’t hear your own baby crying.

Discovering a Natural Birth Control Method I Actually Trust

Two years ago, when I met my current boyfriend, and knew it was going to be more than a fling, we had a serious conversation about birth control… together (a very new experience for me). I told him that I had serious reservations about getting back on the pill, primarily because at that point in my life, after a serious bout of Lyme’s Disease and subsequent thyroid issues that put my hormones totally out of whack, I was just trying to get my body back to neutral. In truth, there was also something liberating about feeling that my body and my cycle had, for the first time since I was 15, been occurring naturally for several years without any influence from synthetic chemicals or hormones.

Birth Control: You Have Another Choice

Now I had looked into a few Pinterest articles that talked about women learning their menstrual cycle and learning days they are fertile and not. While this sounded like a great (and free) option, I didn’t feel comfortable trusting a few websites, and myself, to tell me what days I wasn’t going to get pregnant. Nope, do not want to be pregnant right now. All hope was lost, but we felt like there was still something missing…another, better option. Then I stumbled upon a Facebook article about a birth control method called Daysy.

The Pill May Be Wrecking Your Health

It has revolutionized women’s sexual and reproductive agency – but the birth control pill has a dark side. In light of a recent study linking the tiny tablet to depression, we explore the potential health fallout for a generation who came of age during a hormonal contraceptive boom.

The pill is linked to depression - and doctors can no longer ignore it

A newly published study from the University of Copenhagen has confirmed a link between hormonal contraceptives and depression. The largest of its kind, with one million Danish women between the ages of 15 and 34 tracked for a total of 13 years, it’s the kind of study that women such as me, who have experienced the side-effects of birth control-induced depression first hand, have been waiting for.

The New "No Pill" Birth Control Method
There are two scientifically proven ways to detect fertility in a women. One is the rhythm method, which tracks your menstrual cycles, so you can abstain from unprotected vaginal sex when you’re most likely to become pregnant. The other is symptom-based awareness. Basal body temperatures, cervical mucus and cervical position can be monitored to determine fertility.
