And we’re back!
The myth: The pill is the cure-all solution for women’s health.
The truth: The pill masks true hormonal imbalances, medical conditions, and women’s experiences.
Now I don’t want to sound anti-pill here because I don’t know everyone’s story or situations or why they’re taking the pill… it just bothers me that hormonal birth control has become the standard care for women no matter what the problem is.
More and more women are being prescribed the pill for reasons other than contraception. Acne, painful periods, irregular periods, and conditions like PCOS or endometriosis… the list goes on.
And whatever your choice is for your health and wellbeing, it’s important to understand, the pill is a band-aid solution that actually masks the symptom… it doesn’t treating the underlying condition.
Remember, your menstrual cycle isn’t the problem. It’s revealing the problem.
