Millions of women have used "the pill" to prevent pregnancy, manage hormonal challenges, and even to control acne. Dr. Jolene Brighten, the author of Beyond the Pill, explores little-known facts about the pill in an effort to empower women to balance their hormones and reclaim their bodies.

Dr. Brighten doesn't advocate against its use, but she does offer insights on its effect on our health. She discusses little-known side effects like depression, low libido, brain fog, and fatigue. She talks about what it does to our bodies hormonally and energetically, and how it can impact future fertility. She suggests what your diet should look like while on it, and how to best transition off of it.
