Birth Control, Synthetic Hormones, and You

Birth Control, Synthetic Hormones, and You

by Ashley Hartman Annis, FAE, RHE Author

If you want to quit hormonal birth control, this zine is your manual for deciding whether or not to do it, making the transition, and working towards a healthier period while still not getting pregnant! One thing this zine does *not* do is try to convince you not to use the pill, patch, IUD, or whatever you need to get through your life with all your options and agency intact. It also doesn't shame you for using synthetic hormones for gender-affirming purposes (or any other reason). What it *does* do is help you weigh the pros and cons of going off your hormonal birth control method. Then if you decide to go forward, it helps you make a plan to detox the hormones with the minimum possible side effects, and continue to take charge of your reproductive and whole body health.
