The majority of women in America are on a birth control pill. Obviously birth control was created and used to prevent pregnancy, but there are also other reasons that women get on birth control. It could be for acne, mood, cycle regulation, or symptom relief. It became a fix-all for a lot of women, even when not sexually active. But there are so many other things in that little pill that effect regular hormonal functions and can get your body out of whack. Dr. Jolene Brighten is the author of the book “Beyond the Pill,” which talks about all the things associated with the pill. Today she covers post birth control side effects and post birth control syndrome. Her first interview with us you can find here.
