Myth 12: Being on the Pill is Like Being Pregnant

And we’re back!

The myth: Being on the pill is like being pregnant.

The truth: No it’s not.

Well, there is one thing. When you’re pregnant, you don’t ovulate. And when you’re on the pill, you’re not ovulating either.

But if you look at the hormonal profiles…

On a real cycle with ovulation and menstruation, theres an ebb and flow in your hormones. Pregnancy is a sky-rocket of hormones.

The pill however suppresses your cycle in order to make you infertile and this causes your natural hormone production to be low or non-existent.

This is a chemical castration. More similar to menopause than pregnancy.

That’s why many women experience menopause-like symptoms while on the pill like low libido, vaginal dryness, bone loss, mood changes.

Imagine how many women would take the pill if doctors told them it’d be like early menopause!
