What is the contraceptive, birth control pill?
This is a question I wish I had the inquisitive courage to ask when I was 16 and so eager to jump on the pill and explore my sexual self. Despite there being a lot of great education out there about the birth control pill there is also quiet a lot of confusion around the contraceptive pill how it effects us during and after coming off the pill. In this episode I’m joined by women’s health specialist and naturopath Megan Haralampou to chat all things “the pill”, and what you need to know.
