Is Your Birth Control Making You Sick?

After the birth of my third child, I chose the coper IUD for the next 8 years of birth control.

At first it was wonderful! Then slowly, little by little, health problems started to creep up.

After researching all birth control options I was left in tears. I felt hopeless.

One day, while crying at the counter at the local herbal apothecary, I asked the woman behind the counter if there were any other options.

The woman handed me a card for the Fertility Awareness Method. I said, "thanks, but that's how I got pregnant the first time". The woman said, "no, it's different now".

I called Rachel and set up my first appointment.

In short, the Fertility Awareness Method works!

No matter what people tell you, hormonal and invasive birth control can cause problems.
