Life After Birth Control
Eleven million women in the United States alone use hormonal birth control. Sixty percent of women take the pill for symptom management. However, birth control pills can wreak havoc on a woman’s body.

Treating the root cause of symptoms handled by the pill can improve overall wellness. Consider eliminating the use of the pill for symptom management. Work with a skilled practitioner and pay attention to your body to find the right non-hormonal treatment.

Hormonal birth control impacts every system in the body. There may be a birth control method that is easier on your health that will still work well for you.

Listen as Dr. Jolene Brighten joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss life beyond the pill.
