Birth Control Pills: Dangers, Side Effects & Alternatives - Dr. Axe. In industrialized nations today, synthetic hormonal oral contraception (aka the birth control pill) is the most common practice for preventing pregnancy. Despite evidence suggesting that there are many possible dangers of birth control pills, millions of women choose to take these hormonal medications every year. In fact, 67 percent of all women who report “practicing contraception” currently use non-permanent birth control methods, primarily hormonal methods — which include the pill, patch, implant, injectables and vaginal ring — or IUDs and condoms. (1) About 25 percent of these women rely on taking daily birth control pills, even though most are aware “the pill” affects their entire bodies.

If you currently use birth control of any kind (the pill, shots, the patch, etc.), I cannot urge you strongly enough to consider natural birth control alternatives instead.

The “women’s health tech” space is blazing right now, and there is no shortage of innovative products that are literally changing the way women manage their periods and fertility. It is indeed an exciting time to be a person with a period, amiright?! One such device is Daysy, a menstrual cycle and fertility monitor. Finally, a powerful tool that fits neatly in the palm of your hand, and accurately tracks proven signs and symptoms of fertility on a day to day basis. Paper tracking charts have never seemed so old-school as they do now in 2016 lol! I’ve got to admit, I was super skeptical about the Daysy before I started using her about two and a half months ago.

I’ve been charting my cycle using my basal body temperature and cervical fluid patterns for about ten years, so relying solely on a teensy device to tell me when I am fertile/not fertile was mildly terrifying! PS. Quick & Dirty: You can start using your Daysy the first day you receive her. A’s to your Q’s So what do ya think?? Xoxo, 7 Tips to Prepare for an IVF or FET Embryo Transfer at Home. The Ovulation Process. Let’s take a deeper look to get a better understanding of what exactly occurs in the body during ovulation process. This ovulation graph displays what’s happening in your cycle around ovulation. The cycle is the time from the first day of your period to the first day of the next period. Most women have a menstrual cycle that lasts between 28 to 32 days on average, but for others it might be as short as 21 and as long as 35 days.

Your menstrual cycle tends to be longer in the first few years after menstruation begins and then become shorter and more regular over time. Because there are such differences in the length of women’s cycles, it can be difficult to determine your ovulation window. As already mentioned a cycle is considered to have a normal length if it lasts between 21 and 35 days. Having an irregular cycle is very common, in fact more than 70% of women have a fertile window that occurs before day 10 or after day 17 of their menstrual cycle.

Oral Contraceptives Part I: Get the Facts Before You Decide | BeatCancer.Org. The first oral contraceptive became available to U.S. women in 1960. Since then, millions of women have used “the Pill” in varying forms. It is by far the country’s leading form of birth control today, with roughly 11 million American women currently using it in some way. In fact, in an article in the late 1990’s, the magazine The Economist called the birth control pill an invention “that defined the 20th century.”

But is the convenience that oral contraceptives provide worth the health risks? How Synthetic Contraceptives Work Oral contraceptives are similar to synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in that they adjust the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body. Birth control pills and other non-oral contraceptives like the Patch (Ortho Evra) and the Depo-Provera injection (depo-medroxyprogesterone or DMPA) all work through this basic principle, although Depo-Provera also interferes with hormone signaling.

Oral Contraceptives Can Damage Your Health Reduce Your Toxic Load. Stoppen met de pil | De Groene Meisjes. Een tijdje geleden schreef ik een review over het boek Vegan for Her (wat een regelrechte aanrader is, lees de review maar!) Dat ik wel eens iets zou willen schrijven over het stoppen met de pil. Veel lezers toonden interesse, dus ik besloot ermee aan de slag te gaan. Omdat ik geen dokter ben en ik ook niet wil doen alsof ik beschik over welke medische kennis dan ook, schakelde ik hiervoor hulp in van de Vrouwenpoli. Ook las ik stukken uit het boek Hormoonbalans voor vrouwen. Deze info verwerkte ik, samen met mijn eigen ervaringen, in deze blogpost.

Mijn voorgeschiedenis met de pil Allereerst: hoe het bij mij is gegaan. Ik vond het eigenlijk wel prima om de pil te slikken, want het betekende dat ik mijn menstruaties een beetje zelf kon regelen. Op een bepaald punt aangekomen, zo’n tien jaar later dus, besloot ik dat ik er wel een beetje klaar mee was en dat ik geen zin meer had om de pil te slikken. Dus dat deed ik, van de ene op de andere dag. Redenen om te stoppen met de pil.

Risiko Pille - Interview mit Christin Berndt. Liebe Christin. Du warst nicht nur dabei, sondern hast auch eine bewegende Rede auf der Hauptversammlung des Pharmagiganten Bayer gehalten. Magst du kurz erklären, was dich dazu bewegt hat, Teil der “Risiko Pille” Aufklärungsbewegung zu werden und bei der Versammlung dabei zu sein? Hallo liebes Team von DaysyPlanet. Ich habe selbst ca. zehn Jahre die Antibabypille zur Verhütung genommen. Ganz selbstverständlich wie viele Frauen. Seitdem war für mich klar, dass ich mich hier intensiv engagieren möchte, da ein Thema wie Verhütung so wichtig ist und ich finde, dass hier leider sehr viel falsch gemacht wird – seitens der Pharmaindustrie, aber auch in Sachen Aufklärung der Gynäkologen. Das aktive Unterstützen bei der Bayer Hauptversammlung war für mich dann eine ganz logische Konsequenz und eine Herzensangelegenheit – das Halten der Rede inbegriffen.

Wie wurdet ihr bei der Veranstaltung empfangen? Von einem ,,offenen Ohr“ kann man bei einer Hauptversammlung leider nicht sprechen. The Real Truth about Birth Control Pills that NO ONE Talks About! Mommy Greenest Approved: daysy Fertility Monitoring System - Mommy Greenest. Full disclosure: I got pregnant with my second child using a fertility monitoring system as my method of birth control. So I was a little suspicious of daysy, a new fertility monitoring system that allows women to plan or prevent pregnancy by tracking their own fertility cycles. But then I did a little research, and quickly realized what a great method daysy could be for women like me, who hate using hormones for contraception. By analyzing your basal body temperature against data from millions of cycles, daysy takes the guesswork out of fertility management—leaving you with a hormone free birth control system that’s more effective than the Pill.

Really. When used for birth control, Daysy’s hormone free fertility monitoring system can be more effective than the Pill. This is a moot point for me, because my husband had a vasectomy after my third child was born. Daysy eliminates all that. Is daysy for you? Should You Use A Fertility Monitor As Birth Control? I Do, & This Is What It’s Like | Romper. OK, modern women of the world, think fast and answer me this riddle: What is a married mother of four who really needs reliable birth control but doesn’t want to be on hormones and has no desire to stick a piece of copper into her uterus to do when it comes to family planning?

(Hint: She uses any number of contraceptives. Hell, maybe she even uses a fertility monitor.) It may appear as though we’ve advanced pretty far in the world, where women are equal and we have choices and are seen as more than available uteri with legs, but for a great majority of us, it still feels like we don’t have a lot of options for a birth control that doesn’t come with its own long list of serious risks. I’m not alone in my desire to skip the hormones for my birth control. Some of us really question if 20+ years of completely altering the most basic and sensitive of our body’s systems is really a good idea, and even wonder if there could be undetected long-term risks.

When I went in for my six-week check-up after having my fourth baby, I braced myself, predictably for “the talk.” You know the one I’m talking about right? When the doctor looks your chart over, chuckles a bit, and says, “Well, now what are we going to do to stop this from happening again?” Unfortunately, that talk definitely went down while I lay every so demurely on the exam table, but fortunately, my doctor was also (partly) kidding. She has five kids herself and is always quick to tell me I should have a million kids if I want to. And then there was the fact that she got paged right after my “all-clear” exam and had to literally sprint out of the room so we didn’t have time to go that in-depth into my reproductive choices anyways. Excellent. But if I’m being honest–and I usually am–I’d be lying if I said that family planning going forward as a 28-year-old mom of four wasn’t something on my mind.

Why I Use a German Computer Instead of Birth Control Pills | Organic Olivia. Alright Olivia… have you gone off the deep end this time? A German computer tells you when to have sex?! Dearest bloggy friends, I can assure you that I’m not crazy. Well, no. I can’t do that. I’m kind of nuts (but that’s why you read my rambles, right?) Birth control pills: don’t do it! After that fiasco I was left with two options: a) The copper IUD – No thank you. I was pretty much doomed and stuck with option B until I found a small device called “Daysy” that tells me when it’s okay to have unprotected sex – and it’s JUST as effective as the pill (without the side effects and long term cancer risk!). What is a Daysy? Daysy is a small machine that functions as a natural, hormonal free birth control. A green light means: “You’re in the clear! Wait… you can use your body temperature and that’s it?!

YES! Yes again! Daysy goes well beyond the classic “rhythm method” to achieve a level of accuracy that exceeds that of a hormonal pill. Things to Remember About Daysy: My experience I. Cost. Daysy Review - PCOS and Birth Control. Daysy Oral Thermometer for Menstrual Cycle Tracking to Help Women Manage Pregnancies. We recently covered the Wink connected thermometer, a new device for helping women track menstrual cycles. Now we learn that there’s a competitor device called daysy that’s very similar, but that runs on a different algorithm that may provide more accurate results.

Jessica Griger, COO at Valley Electronics, the U.S distributor of daysy, was kind enough to answer our questions about the daysy and the app that powers it. Medgadget: Daysy is a fertility monitor designed to learn and track the menstrual cycle for people who want or don’t want to conceive. How does daysy work and how is it different from other temperature-based fertility monitors? Jessica Griger: Daysy is used in the same way that a normal oral thermometer is used. The user takes their temperature, under their tongue, when they first wake up in the morning.

Daysy tells the user their fertility status directly on the device. Unlike competitors, daysy is not just a glorified thermometer. Product page: Daysy… Return of the Rhythm Method. Every morning when she wakes up, Becca, a college student in Pennsylvania, puts a teardrop-shaped thermometer called the Daysy under her tongue. If it lights up green, she knows that day she and her boyfriend can have sex without a condom. If it’s red or yellow, they need to use protection. With its blinking face and patented “LadyComp algorithm,” Daysy seems newfangled, but its core technology is one septuagenarians would recognize. It relies on the basal body-temperature method of family planning, based on the fact that women’s bodies are a few degrees hotter just after ovulation. But while in past decades women who employed this method had to hand-chart their temperatures on graph paper, Daysy tracks the readings automatically and ports the data onto a companion iPhone app that lets the user see her “cycle forecast” and “temperature curve.”

Becca began using Daysy in June after stints on the Pill and on Nuvaring, the hormonal vaginal ring. “I like data. “I love that it’s not pink.” The Daysy Fertility Monitor, and Other Apps Like It, May Change the Way You Approach Birth Control. Are you tired of using contraceptives like birth control and condoms? Well, unsurprisingly, there's basically an app for that — the Daysy Fertility Monitor connects to your phone and tracks your menstrual cycle, measuring your body temperature to determine if you can have sex without fear of pregnancy. To use the monitor properly, you take your temperature with the device every morning and it will either flash red, yellow, or green.

Red means you're fertile so avoid sex if you don't plan on having a baby, yellow either means that Daysy is still learning about your cycle, or based on your temperature fluctuations you probably shouldn't have sex. Green means you are infertile and totally fine to have sex — and when I say totally, that's pretty damn near true because Daysy has an effectiveness of 99.3 percent, the same rate as birth control. Daysy is a device that can be hooked up to an app but there are also some apps out there that monitor fertility by themselves. Oral Contraceptives | GreenMedInfo | Toxic Ingredient | Natural.
