I wrote an article on herbal birth control. I'd love to know what you all think. Feel free to leave a comment over there. Let me know if you have personal experience!

I have read it! And posted in it!

I don't know if you went to my site, but I teach a natural birth control method, so I post about this stuff all of the time. I just thought that this particular article might appeal to some permies so I wanted to share

The natural birth control isn't particularly relevant to me any more, but I really enjoyed following the in-article links to other articles on hormonal health and progesterone levels. I have low progesterone levels, high oestrogen levels, severe endometriosis, frequent uterine heamorrhages and am going through the pre-menopause hormonal rollercoaster.

Any tips greatly appreciated...

I have two book recommendations! One is Susan Weed's "The New Menopausal Years" and the other is Christiane Northrup's "The Wisdom of Menopause"

Susan Weeds focuses on helping you deal with certain symptoms of pre/peri-menopause. She goes through her 6 steps of healing... Starting with the benign stuff and even covering the very conventional things you can do.

Christiane Northrup's I actually haven't read yet BUT I have read her other books and she focuses a lot on the emotional aspects of health and I'm sure it's amazing, as is her other stuff.

Please let me know if you end up reading either and if you get anything out of them.
