Choosing a birth control that is right for you can be a difficult decision. It can also be a dangerous one as many different birth controls have an overload of hormones in them. There are some natural birth control methods that have proven to be effective but you need to be diligent about them. Here are 10 reasons that you should try natural birth control over pharmaceuticals.
1. It’s as effective as The Pill if not more effective. Different studies have shown that the effectiveness of The Billings Method (monitoring the mucus secretion changes in a woman’s body to find out when ovulation occurs) is 97.5 to 100% effective.
2. Lower risk of breast cancer. Hormones feed breast cancer and when you take The Pill or any other hormonal form of birth control you are putting excess hormones in your body.
3. You won’t lose your libido like you can with The Pill.
4. You will be more in tune with your body. Once you really have to listen to it to figure out when ovulation is occurring, you become more in tune with the rest of your body’s functions as well.
5. You preserve the natural cycle of hormones and ovulation which can be disrupted by birth control.
6. It is easy to learn. Millions of people around the world are using the Billings Method.
7. Your partner can help you. They can figure out what is going on down there too and it could be a foreplay intro.
8. It is free. There are no prescriptions or expensive doctor visits or tests.
9. It will be easier for you to get pregnant when you want to because you will know when you are ovulating and when the optimal time for conception is.
10. It is a team effort. The cycles are tracked on a chart on the wall so your partner is involved as well and can see the changes too.
