Healing Hormones Podcast

Her Story: Courtney’s Birth Control & Fertility Awareness Journey

If you’re thinking about making a change in your life, it can be so helpful to hear what others have gone through making that same change. I’ve decided to start this new series where I highlight women sharing their stories of coming off of birth control and starting the fertility awareness method (FAM) so you can hear firsthand what it’s like. We talk about when hormonal birth control makes sense and when it’s time to explore other options, making the transition, and how FAM affects all areas of her life. When it comes to making that decision yourself, if you’d like to learn more about the fertility awareness method join my free training, Prevent Pregnancy Naturally + Ditch the Pill Without Fear.

We Chat About:

  • Why Courtney began taking birth control
  • The baggage that came along with hormonal birth control
  • Dealing with post-pill amenorrhea
  • Making the decision to learn fertility awareness method
  • How learning FAM has changed Courtney’s relationship
