Health Consulting through Stopping Hormonal Birth Control

Have you recently decided to go off hormonal birth control or are considering doing so?

Wanting some guidance and support through this process?

Want to know more about your options for hormonal rebalancing and non-hormonal birth control options?

Thinking of ending hormonal birth control to start a fertility process and want to know what to expect and how to best manage this new step?

Rosewood’s got you covered!

Hormonal birth control can be an absolute blessing and godsend for many folks for a huge range of reasons. Many are on some sort of regulated hormonal birth control from a very young age and don’t have a good understanding of their “normal” cycles — the good and the ugly.

However, the synthetic hormone replacements in birth control are not the same as those that our bodies produce on their own. You may have been having side effects you didn’t even know were connected to these medications. You may experience a major shift in a variety of physical and emotional systems in your body once you decided to stop taking birth control like :

  • Unusually heavy or light periods

  • Irregularly spaced periods

  • Cessation of periods all together

  • Acne / Cystic acne

  • Changes in mood and appetite — moderate or severe

  • Weight changes

  • Unusual hair growth or hair loss

  • Fatigue or Insomnia

You’re not alone!

Regardless of your reasons to switch away from hormonal cycle regulation, you don’t need to simply accept the changes your body will make in adjusting back to it’s own rhythm. There are ways to ease the discomforts, even if it’s mostly just being informed and supported in what’s going on.

With our extensive intake forms and commitment to non-judgemental one-on-one consultations and evidence-based resources, Rosewood can be a huge help in taking some of the burden and stress off this decision. We work with you on a wide range of holistic fronts :

  • Education on what’s happening in your body

  • Tips on finding high level research and information to help you make the best decisions for YOU

  • Connecting you with compassionate, knowledgable, affordable, and most appropriate care providers to help ease your transition off the pill/shot/ring/IUD

  • Nutritional and herbal counseling

  • Virtual or in-person followups that acknowledge that this is going to be a process spread out over at least many months

Spending a few hundred dollars on personalized consultations around this topic can wind up saving you a ton of money and time you might otherwise spend on treatments, products, wasted time with providers who aren’t supportive, etc., and can help get you feeling stable and supported right from the start. Rosewood doesn’t get kick backs from any product, company, or provider, so our aim is to objectively find a great fit for you through this process. We offer consults by the hour or full 6-month consultation and support packages aimed at personalizing your care to get what’s right for you.
