Is the Pill Affecting your Future Fertility?

“We hear much about endocrine disruptors today…Birth control pills are, by their very design, endocrine disruptors, but they are not mentioned alongside the shampoos and kitchen cleaners in this conversation…People now make an effort to avoid potential endocrine disruptors, but they do not question taking the pill.”

This is a great point from my colleague Holly Griggs Spall’s excellent and important book called Sweetening the Pill”.  I recommend it to anyone who is curious about the pill and it’s effects on their health.

the pillIf you’re on the pill now or were in the past and have future pregnancy plans in the works, you may be wondering if the pill is something that could be compromising your fertility.

Well, I’m glad you asked because there’s a lot you should know about the pill and it’s effects on your fertility!

Here’s the thing -

While the pill is wonderful in many ways and can be a great short-term solution to birth control in hormonally-healthy women, if you are on the pill mostly to help problems with your period (i.e. irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, PMS, or acne), you must know that the pill is NOT fixing those problems. The pill is merely masking your symptoms. You may experience temporary relief, but once you get off the pill those problems will be right there waiting for you and potentially compromising your ability to conceive naturally.

A few common reasons why women go on the pill in the first place, aside from birth control:

Those issues are known fertility blockers, and the solution to healing them is unfortunately not the pill. Don’t create obstacles in the way of your fertility. Instead, address these issues now, from their underlying causes, so that you can pave the way for healthy and effortless fertility.

What to do now?

If you’re reading this and wondering what your options are given your current situation, here’s how you can get started. Find the scenario that best matches where you are:

“I’m not ready to get off the pill.” 

That’s okay!  Many of the women in our program are in the same spot.  However, you should start addressing the underlying hormonal problems that you have.

Beginning your functional nutrition treatment with us now ensures that when you are ready to get off the pill and get your pregnancy on, you can come off it having already changed your internal ecosystem naturally. This is a bonus for you because you’ll not only be in tip-top fertile-shape, but you also won’t have a relapse of the symptoms you were dealing with before getting on the pill.

“I’m thinking about going off but I’m not sure.” 

If you’re considering getting off the pill but don’t want to get pregnant right away, start by looking into alternative options for birth control. There are many out there that can be just as effective as the pill without the hormonal repercussions: condoms, diaphragm, sponge, and the Fertility Awareness Method, to name a few.  Most importantly, by cycle syncing your diet the WomanCode way, you’ll never be left wondering when you might be ovulating without your knowing for sure.

“I’m ready to get off the pill NOW!” 

Awesome! The best place to start is with our food protocol that can help prep your body for the hormonal shift and get your endocrine system back in balance. Work with your doctor to transition off the pill as you integrate the WomanCode protocol.

I’ve created a special, FREE workshop just for you this month because I know how important it is to be thinking about your fertility, even if it’s long before you actually want to get pregnant. You have the power to heal your body, and I’m so passionate about giving you the tools to do so!

Will you be able to get pregnant when you’re ready?

pregnancy_dietWhen I’m talking with women about their fertility, one of the most common questions I get is this:

“I’m not ready to get pregnant now, but how do I know I’ll be able to in the future?”

If you’re in the same boat in your 20s or 30s – not exactly ready to put a bun in the oven but considering it for the future – then it’s time to get real about the signs your body is telling you now. Every woman should be able to get pregnant naturally when she’s ready, but in today’s hormone harming environment, we have more working against our fertility than ever before.  If you find yourself, like so many other women, ignoring symptoms that might seem insignificant and even unrelated now, we here at FLO Living want you to be able to evaluate if these symptoms are early warning signs that your future fertility might be problematic.  You must understand how they could affect you down the road, and you must not make the common mistake of waiting to address these symptoms/issues until you actually want to get pregnant. From our experience over the past 12 years – this is a recipe for fertility stress.

Today I want to share with you 4 specific symptoms you might be experiencing that are indicators of potential compromised fertility. It’s not meant to frighten you, but rather to empower you with the information you need to start evaluating as soon as possible the action steps you need to take immediately to improve your fertility in the future. (And if you’re actively trying and feel you’re out of time, we’ll have more tips for you in the coming weeks!)

So here are 4 signs your fertility is compromised:

  1. PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome) – Experiencing monthly mood-swings, cramps, headaches, and more before your period are signs of PMS. This indicates that there is something off with the critical balance between estrogen and progesterone in your system, and most often progesterone is too low. Since this is the hormone that allows you to hold on to the embryo once you conceive, it  can make conceiving difficult and potentially increase your risk of miscarriage.

  2. Lack of cervical fluid around ovulation – If you haven’t been noticing any changes with cervical fluid or vaginal discharge throughout the month, it’s time to start paying attention! One of the biggest indicators of healthy ovulation is having a very wet, uncooked egg-white-like mucus (called cervical fluid) for 3-4 days mid-cycle. This paves the way for sperm to make it to your eggs, and so if it’s not happening it could interfere with the process.

  3. Irregular cycles – Whether or not you have a diagnosed condition like PCOS, if you’re noticing your cycles are not regular each month it will become a huge problem when you’re trying to get pregnant. When you address the irregularities now, you will have an easier time making sure you are timing sex correctly for conception and you’re body will be more fertile and ready later on when you want to conceive.

  4. Adrenal issues – Experiencing insomnia, anxiety, stress, low energy, and sugar addiction are all signs that your adrenal glands are suffering. This unfortunately not only makes you feel lousy, but it indicates a high cortisol and low DHEA ratio that compromises ovulation regularity and diminishes egg quality, both essential factors in your fertility.

Take a moment to evaluate your own symptoms -

Can you identify with any of the 4 we listed? Are some more extreme than the others?

Think of your fertility factor as a 1 to 10 scale, 1 being fertility compromised and 10 being fertility optimized. Based on your evaluation of the 4 signs listed above, where do you fall on the scale?

Please share in the comment box below. I want to know exactly what you’re dealing with so that we can continue to help you in upcoming blog posts and classes.

It’s time to bump your fertility factor up to a 10 so that you can be as ready as possible when the timing is right!
