Since I first wrote about my post-pill amenorrhea (no period after coming off the pill) back in May, it has easily become my most visited post. Every week I have women sharing their confusion and fear with me and it breaks my heart to read how afraid, desperate and uninformed a lot of these women are when it comes to the contraceptive pill and its long term effects on fertility and their bodies’ ability to find balance and obtain a healthy cycle once coming off it. You can read my first post here.
So where am I at with it all? Well, here we go. Forewarning: Lengthy post!
Chinese Medicine & Nourishment
For almost 5 months I’ve been focussing on nourishing my body from a Chinese Medicine perspective through the care of Amy O’Brien, a Chinese Medicine Herbalist and Acupuncturist (read more about my experience with acupuncture here) to rebalance and nourish my body.
