Better Everyday #114 Beyond The Pill With Dr Jolene Brighten
Functional and Naturopathic doctor Jolene Brighten joins us to talk all about hormonal birth control and Post Birth Control Syndrome. Over half of the women taking birth control are using it for reasons other than preventing pregnancy and women are rarely given the full scoop about the risks of the pill when it’s prescribed. We talked about women and the pill through the decades ranging from its impact on normal puberty to whether or not a woman going through perimenopause should consider the pill.
This was a super fun conversation with Dr Brighten jam packed with info that all woman need to know both for ourselves and for our daughters.
