Protect your liver, please STOP the pill!
We have found a multitude of health concerns that arise after women unknowingly choose to use hormonal birth control. Respect your rhythms and your own hormones and let us help you get away from these noxious drugs!
Natural Family Planning & the “FemCap” are reported to be just as effective as conventional anti-contraceptive options with less side effects. Amongst all of the anti-contraceptive methods including oral birth control, injections, surgically implanted devices like IUDs, and condoms, many people forget a time-tested tradition of natural family planning which, according to the FDA, can be upwards of 98% effective with perfect use and 93% with typical use. Natural family planning effectiveness is similar to the most potent hormonal and non-hormonal anti-contraceptives such as Meriva IUDs but without the unwanted side effects of toxic hormones, heavy metal exposure, allergic reactions, or altering a woman’s menstrual cycle.
There are smartphone apps to track your period and fertile days for appropriate family planning. One recently FDA-approved app is Natural Cycles, which uses basal body temperature (BBT)-a time honored fertility awareness method. Women enter their temperature into the app each morning, as well as information regarding their menstrual period, and the app calculates the window of time when a woman is the most fertile.
In combination with this app, we advise the FemCap – a viable and effective barrier method without the worry of hormone side effects, experiencing a latex allergy, or environmental waste of male condoms.
FemCap is a reusable surgical-grade silicone cervical cap that is 92% effective in the prevention of pregnancy and when used in combination with Natural Family Planning, the effectiveness with perfect use is 95% without the side effects of hormonal contraception, allergic reactions to male condoms, or environmental waste.
FemCap is also more economical than any other method costing less than $130 for up two years worth of contraceptive protection compared to several hundred to thousands dollars spent on disposable condoms, anti-contraceptive surgery, pills, and injections every year.
However, like all contraceptives aside from barrier devices these methods do not protect against Sexually-Transmitted Illnesses (STIs/STDs).
