I’ve been struggling with several health conditions for over 10+ years and I’m only 28. This last year has been particularly tough as my husband and I began unsuccessful fertility treatments and I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition. I was in a very bad place at the end of 2017 mentally, physically, and emotionally. I turned to keto under your support and for the first time in a year, I could get out of bed. It was your support through your podcast and the resources you provide us that has given me the strength to stand up for myself and love myself again. You have given me the courage to start my own blog and share my story, something I thought I would never, ever have the guts to do. I just want to thank you for showing such strength and reminding me that I have the power over my thoughts and feelings about myself.
If you feel like your birth control is changing your behavior, it’s time to talk to your health care provider. Everybody responds to birth control differently, and your provider can help you decide whether it’s time to try something else. It might be a matter of switching hormonal methods or deciding whether to avoid hormonal birth control altogether , or you may choose to wait it out since some negative side effects go away with time . The bottom line: If your current method is making you feel blah, don’t settle. There are a lot of methods to choose from and sometimes it can take a few tries to get it right.
