When you’re coming off hormonal birth control

Given how hard people have had to fight for the right to control their own fertility, it feels complicated for us to raise concerns about any kind of hormonal birth control. We’re addressing this topic anyway, because we see so many patients whose health is impacted by hormonal birth control—often, in ways they didn’t expect and aren’t prepared for. We have seen community acupuncture help people dealing with unwanted side effects of various different kinds of hormonal contraceptives, including the Pill (during and after taking the Pill) Depo-Provera, Nuvaring, and hormonal IUDs.

Hormonal transitions are a natural part of life and something almost everyone goes through. They can also be quite difficult! Community acupuncture can help.
