  1. Why doesn’t anyone talk about the WAY hormonal contraception works: it shuts down your cycle…like a chemically induced menopausal state. Yes, the side effects need to be talked about, but how about shutting down an entire bodily function? No ovulation, no natural steroid hormones (no progesterone!), no menses…

    It contributes to insulin resistance, encourages gut dysbiosis, vitamin deficiencies…

    There are so many chronic issues it contributes to, and it should be concerning women aren’t told. So much for “choice.”

    Dr. Lara Briden is an adovocate for women to explain everything that the medical system won’t

  2. I tried to take the hormone quiz through the WM link and also on his website. Neither of them work. Please advise. Thanks.
