NO MORE FACE WOUNDS!
When I started my journey with the HSE I also decided to ace the pill for good. Go ALL IN or give up was my mentality at the time.
I’d tried doing this before, on a few occasions. In the past, coming off the pill with no plan lead me to multiple doctors offices and hospitals with extreme pain, bloating, hives (for three months with no answer!!!) wild acne and god knows what else was connected. All medical professionals urged me to ‘just go back on the pill’. Turning a deaf ear to my story about my decade of other unanswered health concerns. About how I had removed every other possible related constant from my life. This, from all the study mum and I had done, would likely be my answer. But the road was so hard (and I was single, not ready for babies) that I always ended up back on it.
This time around, however, it was sooooo much less severe and I didn’t require any doctors or hospitals when I felt the ups and downs of natural hormone production. It’s probably taken me 18mths to finally be able to say I’m balancing naturally. But it was only a month or so after stopping that all my other health problems seemed to fall away. Now, my cycle is bang on regular. My skin is clear, my mental health is freakin EPIC. I still have this pesky little fibroid in my uterus but he’s decreasing by the day, I can feeeel it hehe.
Im also loving creating myself a natural birth control plan. We have an amazing seminar from @brightgirlhealth in The HSE, allll about hormones, cycle and how to take back control of our incredible bodies and I watch it over constantly. Stuff that we should have learnt in school!
We aren’t suppose to have extreme pain. We aren’t supposed to have chronic and cystic acne!! Our body has its own natural birth control system!! Did you know?
Whatever ails you, it’s not going to be a quick fix to heal. It’s likely going to be harder before it gets AMAZING! But don’t let that deter you from starting. Educate yourself. Ask for help and take back control of your body babes!
