Birth Control Pills

What Role Do Birth Control Pills Play in Estrogen Dominance?

Many young girls and older women are prescribed birth control pills to control their menstrual irregularities. Premenstrual fluid retention and weight gain, and other menstrual irregularities are caused by female hormonal imbalance. Hormone balance needs to be restored, not masked with counterfeit hormones. Birth control pills are counterfeit hormones which turn off the production of a woman’s bio-identical hormones by the ovaries.

Synthetic hormones are made by drug companies and do not occur naturally. They are not biologically identical to naturally occurring human hormones. They may produce some effects similar to the bio-identical hormones in a woman’s body but are also associated with numerous side effects, many of which are serious.

What are the side effects of Birth Control Pills?

Birth control pills create a state of estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency. Common side effects of birth control pills are headaches, including migraines, breast tenderness, mood swings, fluid retention, weight gain, and loss of libido.

Birth Control Pills are also associated with an increased incidence of breast cancer, stroked and blood clots to the lungs. Birth control pills prevent the production of women’s bio-identical female hormones and pheromones making them less attractive to men. There is no reason for any woman to poison her body every day with the counterfeit hormones in birth control pills in order to control premenstrual symptoms and menstrual irregularities when bio-identical Progesterone is available.

Menstrual cycles can be easily regulated using Progesterone on days 15 through 28 of the menstrual cycle.
