I tried searching but didn't quite find anything.

I was curious what Dr D's stance was on BCP's for A's?  I'm thinking of going off it because I've been on a long time and really want to get me body to the most natural state to heal.  I'm a little worried about the side effects of going off the pill.

I don't know what Dr. D's stance is, but in my opinion anything artificial that screws with the natural hormone cycle of a woman isn't something I want in my body.

Natural Family Planning/Ovulation Method is all we know of that's truly safe, non-invasive and chemical-free.

I'm willing to bet there are herbal tinctures or teas that suppress ovulation.  But I don't know what they are.  I'd be willing to try them if I could learn about them.

Can anybody help on this subject?

I'm sure in other parts of the world where herbal knowledge is commonplace, they would laugh at our ignorance.

Searching the archives needs to be done from the search feature on the home page.

Using the search feature on this forum only searches this forume. The other search feature will search the rest of the site.

I would think that it would be the worst for As as their blood is thicker & the pill is related to clots.

I took it for 3 years, but wish I hadn't. I didn't have outward bad reactions, but now keep hearing that it isn't good.
I did get some kind of reactions for a few weeks after quitting it. That was over 33 years ago. My older son is 32 now. I'm glad we waited a frew months to try to have kids as later I heard it was bad to get pregnant the first few months after quitting.  Why didn't the establishment make that info known?????

Yes, it seems that you want your body clean as clean as possible when getting ready for pregnancy. (Almost makes me think waiting a year after getting off pills/medication would be a good idea.)
