If you’re anything like me hitting puberty and hit puberty in the late 90’s through to the early 2000’s… you were recommended the contraceptive pill. Fast forward 20 years and contraceptive choices have widely changed, evolved and today there is way more information at my finger tips in less than 10 seconds than there was every available in 10 days. This time frame has allowed us to gain more knowledge and understanding of hormonal contraception which enables us to make clearer and more informed contraceptive decisions.
But if you are or were like and choose a hormonal contraceptive option like the pill you need to hear this. The pill depletes us nutritionally and it’s important to know how. To bring you this topic and conversation I’m joined in this episode by women’s health dietician Amanda Montalvo. Tune in with us as we discuss the most common deficiencies, how to use mineral testing and how you can support yourself while on hormonal contraception.
