Beat Infertility Podcast: Optimizing Fertility Post-Birth Control

Hey kids! Last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Heather Huhman of Beat Infertility all about how hormonal birth control effects our fertility, on the Beat Infertility podcast.

You can listen to the episode here.

We discussed:

  • How the pill depletes nutrients
  • How the hormonal birth control erodes the connection between the ovaries and the brain
  • Why your period can tell you SO MUCH about your cycle health
  • What to look for in a healthy cycle
  • What hormones you should get tested post-pill (I focused on the big ones in the episode, but you should really get testosterone, prolactin and thyroid hormones tested too. More on that to come!)
  • How long you should wait after using hormonal birth control to try for a baby
  • How to live cyclically
  • & More!
