I get it: Ditching hormonal birth control can feel risky

I went from dating the pill for five years to finally calling it quits and dumping my traditional birth control methods for good. But, it took some time (and serious discomfort)to get me to that place.

Maybe you’ve had a scare before. Perhaps you’ve just never heard it could be any other way.

Well. There is another way. And it’s no riskier than whatever birth control method you’re using right now.

⬆️ That’s what I wish someone had told me when I walked into my doctor’s office looking for a contraception method at 19 years old.

But they didn’t. And it took me 5 years of not feeling quite right to figure it out.

Charting Your Cycle | 1:1 Private Instruction - Charting with Jess

I had lost my libido, was feeling disconnected from myself and had started to feel anxious, panicked and frustrated…

  • My boyfriend was once again standing in front of me asking me why I wasn’t in the mood. It had become a little bit of a ritual for us, if I’m honest.
  • I was waking up feeling lacklustre – a shadow of myself. I lost the real Jess.
  • My brain felt foggy, plain and simple. Mental Clarity had up and walked out of my life.

Now I know why.

It wasn’t until one Saturday afternoon. I was scrolling through Instagram and stumbled upon a post from a health coach I follow. In it, she mentioned charting your cycles as a natural method of birth control.

*Brain Explosion*

I dove deep into researching the benefits of charting your cycle that Saturday afternoon. I read article after article and watched video after video.

And within an afternoon, my entire world changed. I found the cause of why I’d been feeling so “meh.” I finally found a natural method of birth control.

And it turns out, I wasn’t alone in my search for it.

A Kinsey Institute Study found that 40% of women who started the pill felt a drop in well-being, and 40% also felt a loss of sexual desire.

Yes, 40%?!

Not long after the hormones had exited my body for good did I remember what it was to be ME

  • I could think more clearly again
  • My anxiety was gone
  • I felt more grounded and connected to my mind and body
  • My libido returned in full force

I couldn’t believe it – I started to feel like myself again for the first time in five years!

That’s why learning the science behind FAM is so important

Most of the women who come to me are not even aware there’s a method of birth control that’s hormone-free and natural.

They’re unaware of the effects their hormonal birth control can have on their body – depression, anxiety, loss of libido, water retention, bloating, moodiness.

That’s how I can help you.
