core connections wellness Jan 14, 2020


Have you been wishing there was a 411 line that you could call and learn all you need to know about the effects of birth control?

*Ring! Ring!*

I would pick up that call - wait, that's not how the 411 line works, oh well! - because Dr. Jolene Brighten, naturopathic physician, best-selling author and a leader in women's health, joins us on the podcast to take on the conversation of birth control and what she has found through her research.

This is a conversation not about what you should or shouldn't do with the pill, but a conversation around awareness in order to take back your body. Every day is an opportunity to take a step towards your health, let today support that.

When it comes to getting the 411 on birth control, Dr. Brighten expands on:
  • What you’re not told about when prescribed the pill. (3:07)
  • How to know if your pelvic floor pain is muscular or from birth control. (8:50)
  • Symptoms that occur once a woman goes off the pill. (12:37)
  • Other options besides birth control to prevent pregnancy. (16:38)
  • If the pill is preventing you from getting pregnant. (26:12)
