How do you ACTUALLY avoid pregnancy without artificial hormones? 😳
What has been the impact of these synthetic hormones on the body both in the short-term & long-term? 🧬
Did you know?
🔬 "The combined Pill increases your risk of depression by as much as 80%, and progestin-only doubles your risk. A major European study conducted by the University of Copenhagen, the largest of its kind to date, found a strong correlation between being on the Pill and developing major depression. Researchers followed over a million women, ages fifteen to thirty-four, for thirteen years and found that about 23% of the women—including many who had never struggled with depression, mood symptoms, or mental health problems prior to starting the Pill—needed to go on an antidepressant medication. This was not the first study to link OCPs (oral contraceptive pills) to depression, though it was the largest. Teens were especially vulnerable. While women on the combined pill fared the worst, progestin-only pills and the transdermal patch and vaginal ring were also associated with a higher rate of depression and antidepressant prescriptions."
It's time we start talking about this 🤯
It's time we start gaining our power back over our hormone health 🧬
It's time we stop believing we "aren't smart enough" to prevent unwanted pregnancy in OTHER ways without turning OFF our hormones 🤬
