  • Doc. Wendy please i need your reply.Can i ask if its ok to make an excersize when you have iud. I have iud for three years actually its three years ago ive never take any check up for it. And i make excersize in my belly and i felt pain in my tummy… ������Doc im worry about it.. and also im so tired everyday.. And i always standing in whole day..

  • My daughter almost got kicked when she pulled mine out it hurts so bad I was coming up off the table and this doctor looks like or two

  • I have PCSO and ENDO and I have tried so many pills the one I have been on for the longest is Dianette I had a recent problem were I was bleeding for 11weeks straight and I have had an on going problem with my weight starting the pill when I was 11 and still on it when I am 19 it’s very hard especially with the weight issue do you have any tips? I am still getting a lot of pain and some syst have burst causing sever pain

  • Yes!! I loved this video. Thanks for trying to educate us all! I’ve been on birth control since I was 13 and I’ve used IUDs for 6 years now which is terrifying in and of itself but I thought it would be a better alternative to the pill. I’m done! I’m getting this one removed and then I’m excited to see how my body functions just as “my body” all on its own!

  • Of a 28 day cycle you usually ovulate around day 14 so for a few days after your cycle it’s safe and toward the end the last week. Your secretions are also different. Your boyfriend should just take care of it wear a condom it’s not like you didn’t try birth control it’s his job now. It didn’t ever agree with me either hormones effect your emotions big time and also at the time because I have the gene for breast and ovarian cancer my gp wasn’t keen to give me any hormonal birth control. However after my first brat I didn’t tell the hospital my history of the brca gene and they gave me a prescription when I had to come off it my husband was annoyed he had to wear a condom! Showed me how much he cared �� he is no an ex!

  • I haven’t seen your videos in a while. You cleared 100k subs! Congrats!! I’ll have to go back n see what you posted… I dont think this one is for me. How’s your skin?

  • Oh also, the reason I got off the pill was because I was having crazy headaches every other month. Like… debilitating migraines that were the worst. Doctor said that it wasn’t related to the BC but as soon as I went off the pill I haven’t had a headache since.

  • The last year of my life has been a PBCS nightmare! I was put on birth control by my doctor when I was 15 for irregular periods. I also have had Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism since I was 12. I came off of birth control when I was 27, so that’s 12 years on the pill! Needless to say… my body has been a hormonal nightmare. I’m so glad that I found Dr Brighten’s book a few months ago. It’s been a big help. I’m still not fully healed yet but I’m so much better than I was this time last year. Had I known what what I know now about the pill and how it interacts with the thyroid, I would’ve gotten off years ago! It would’ve saved me a few years of very poor health.

  • Hello Dr. Bailey
    It is my first time to take contraceptive pills. I have started taking yaz pills on the first day of my period as instructed by my OB-GYN..the heavy bleeding last for 6 days and its normal for me but what worried me is that in the 7th day i still have spotting until I am on my 18 day of taking and my spotting never ends. Should I be worried?

  • Hi! I’ve just started taling ginet for my skin and I’ve taken like 5 days worth of the hormone pills and I feel terrible, headaches tired and an upset sick tummy feeling. Is this normal for people when starting the pill or should I go back to my doc and try change!? Thanks in advance!!

  • Im on isibloom (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) week 2 and the first week i was fine but now on week 2 ive been throwing up everyday, no appetite, and extreme nausea.. what should i do??

  • i started micrognyn 30 2 weeks ago and i have cramps, will these cramps get better soon
    and if you think you have a blood clot, should you stop taking the pill or continue til the pack is finished so you dont mess up the cycle?

  • I’ve been on the pill for almost 5 years now, but recently my periods when I take the sugar pills have been so incredibly painful. Do I ever need to get my period or can I just never stop taking hormone pills?

  • I took microgynon 30 yesterday night for the first time (first time on birth control) and have been experiencing rashes and itching. Is it safe to completely stop taking it?

  • Can you make a video if those of us on the pill need to take breaks from the pill? I have been on it for 8 years but don’t have any side affects really. People have told me I need to take a break from the pill to have my body “reset “, but my husband and I don’t want kids yet. His family is SUPER fertile so he is terrified i would even consider it lol

  • Thank you for speaking about this topic! I’d be interested to hear what you think about “seed cycling” as a possible method of balancing female reproductive hormones. Thank you for your time & energy spent researching & creating informative content.:)

  • Ive been om depo for almost a whole year and honestly i wanna kill myself. Only reason y i love it is because i don’t get a period. Other than that ive gained weight like crazy, been bloates ever since. Literally everyone asks if im pregnant….and i always feel full. Plus my moods are always stress, depression and im always angry at the world and my looks. Normally im never so worried about my weight but ever since i went from pilld to deop shot, ive alresdy regretted it. Idk what else to do and im lazy already to work out but thats the only way to get rid of all this weight gain and angry

  • I am excited to follow your journey! I was on birth control for a short time, the Depo shot and NuvaRing. They both gave me bad heart palpitations (which was terrifying because I spent the first 12 years of my life with a really bad heart condition). My doctors didn’t believe me when I told them, so I took myself off of them. It took about 6 months for the palpitations to stop, and I haven’t had any since. It’s been 5ish years.

  • I would love to stop taking the pill, but I’ve explored all alternatives and they are eighter unreliable or give me even more severe symptoms:( I don’t know what to do…

  • I was on depo for a year I immediately stop having periods but I was getting the shots on my hip… ln the next year I stopped taking depo because I gained a lot of weight.. ��

  • I got the depo shot like three weeks ago. And I’ve been bleeding heavily ever since, I’m constantly nauseated. I feel dizzy 24/7 and tired.

  • My daughter was put on bc at 13 bkz of very large clots & severely painful periods. My goal was to get her back of asap. This was almost 5 yrs ago. So much more research now. She was terrified to come off but with some diet tweaks in place and knowing she could go back on we tried. Knock on wood she has been good almost 4 yrs. When I heard Jolen on a few podcasts say a 300x increase in crohn’s. My jaw dropped. My husband has severe crohn’s & ulcerative colitis. So we definitely don’t see hormonal bc in her future.

  • Doctor, I have very bad headache & neusea after 1 week Mirena insertion. May I know will this be long term side effect? Ibuprofen doesn’t seem helpful. Is there any other remedy to treat this headache? or anything else I have to observe? Thank you.

  • I’m 15 years old and I got off the Depo shot a little while back and I was only on it for a year do you think in the future it would cause infertility?

  • Girl you took some of the words right out my mouth..the weight gain,then the weight gain in my butt is crazy…like how do you lose weight in butt? And I always been the same weight up until I got on the shot

  • ive had stomach issues since i was 14 but went on birth control around 15-16. Im 20 nowcould coming off the pill help my stomach? they went back and forth with saying i had sibo now ibs so i would do anything to help it

  • I’m on it now and I’m always feeling soooo Nauseous. Everything else has been good no period, I just always feel like I have to throw up at least 4 times a day.

  • I’ve started the pill a second time nowI stopped the first time because although I pass out sometimes this was just making it worse. But my cramps are so bad that I decided to start again. And this time I’ve pushed through almost one full packbut my boobs are sore and I’m bleeding still for two weeks now. I also do feel light headed and weak but I’m not sure if that’s just me normally or from the pill. Anyways my question (if you have time to answer) is should I stop taking the pill if it just seems to cause more harm than good..

  • The depo for me I’ve only been on it for 6 months now and I’ve feel my body change so much and my depression hit really hard and CRYING OVER EVERYTHING!! Nervous alllll the timeee

  • Hi doctor, hope u r going well. I have a question as i have PCOD and my doctor prescribed me diane and i started talking it in January. After taking it for 3months my acne is still there, hair loss, less flow of periods. These days i stopped taking it as my heart rate is increasing (112) and my BP (111-75) which i feel is due to that medicine. In February end i even got fainted. So, can u plz suggest the best way to treat all these issues. Moreover, is the contraceptive pills the reason of increasing heart rate?
    Looking forward to hear from you.

  • When I came off of it I felt like my old self. One odd thing that I didn’t even notice it till off that my perceptions of attraction changed because they even changed back. It makes sense it’s hormones but my goodness.. some of the people I was with lol I found them compatible but once off I no longer found them as physically attractive. I’ve recently heard about this and spousal attraction changes. Apparently we cannot smell pheromones while on synthetic hormones, genetic compatibility is REAL and on it we choose partners with closer genes to us. Not good for future offspring.
    My androgens rebounded too which I never had a problem with prior. But 8 years on it while I was still developing, not smart. I dont feel as “stereotypically emotional” as a female now that I’m off. The world feels brighter and more colorful. Probably progesterone/pregnenolone’s role.
    Thanks for making a video on this. I wish I knew then what I know now ����

  • I have been on depo for over 10 years and yep, i have had side effects. My moods have changed. I have no swings anymore. I am very chill. I don’t get ups and downs like before. Personally, that is fine for me and it works. No periods, no pain great. But i don’t think it is for everyone. Talk to your doctor. One experience isn’t the only experience.

  • I’ve been on depo since I was 14 years old off & on. I had no problems until recently this year. I began to have extreme panic attacks, & severe anxiety. It was so severe it was interfering with my job. It would start two weeks after my injection & last up to one-two weeks. I would be absolutely terrified for no reason. It would make me shake very badly & I’m a massage therapist, so that wasn’t good for my job at all. I would cry, & feel like I was doomed. I had to make myself go to work, & I love my job. I was so scared I’d lose my job it was that serious. It took me awhile to make the connection to the shot. I’m actually relieved that it was the birth control, & not just me. I had to take CBD just to make it through work, & even that wouldn’t help much. CBD has always helped me tremendously, but not much during that one-two week time frame after my shot. I didn’t want to take Xanax again, & I really thought I’d have to in order to keep my job. I didn’t by the way since I figured everything out. I switched to a Lo form of the pill & I’m gonna see if I even handle that. I sure hope so.
    I won’t discourage anyone from the shot, but beware & stop it if it is giving you trouble. I did handle it well for many years, but our bodies do change.

  • I love the content of your videos!
    I wanted to modify my comment, but I couldn’t find it.
    I had just mentioned about maca (I know you already know it and its properties), about a special mix of Fungi Perfecti adaptogens to balance women’s hormones, and I’m going to add the following:
    I just watched an interview with Mike Mutzel and Carrie Jones (High Intensity Health, episode #122 on youtube), they were talking about adrenal fatigue and some hormonal issues, but she mentioned about a kind of adaptogen for the hypotalamus-pituitary-ovary comunication, It is called “chaste tree berry”. I bet you can dive in some information.
    Love ya!!

  • This is a great summary of birth control, but I think it’s super important to point out that this information is specific to oral hormonal birth control. The hormonal IUD is a bit different and doesn’t suppress ovulation but rather prevents your uterine lining from building up and having a fertilized egg implant. This is why so many women who have Mirena no longer have their period and why you can get pregnant the cycle following removal. Studies have been done to show that it’s effects on hormones aren’t as severe as oral birth control:

  • I got my depo shot on my belly. I havent heard anyone saying they got it there and the random bleeding and skin colored bumps are annoying. Most terrifying thing is suicidal thoughts.

  • Ive been on depo provera for about 6 years with a 12 month gap in the middle to “reset” my body, and ive never had kids but am planning to in about 5 years time. My mum was on it for about 10 years before she accidentally had my little sister (she missed her injection by like 1 week), and got me on it in year 11 to stop my periods. In the year i came off of it, within 6 months my periods had returned and then left again within 3 months of going back on it. All the side effects listed in this video i only get when its wearing off and then go away again within a week of getting my next one. I’ve tried other contraceptives as well but this is the only one that seems to have no side effects for me. If you’ve never heard of the depo and have been struggling with other contraceptives ask your doctor about it and give it a go, everyone is different and it may not work for you but its another option for women and more effective than others if used timely. As long as you dont mind needles, also it can be given anywhere not just the butt haha

  • Sorry for ranting, excellent video very informative ❤��

    I’d love to know if there’s any super fun side effects of other birth control methods? Or if the books you recommended went into detail about any of them?

  • Omg yes! Thanks so much for posting this! I thought I was the only crazy person on Depo. I have depression and anxiety, I also have no Lobito too. I’ve been on it for 2 years. I’m not going to get my next one and I hope these symptoms will go away!

  • I have the copper IUD and it was the best decision I ever made. I tried 2 different pills when i was younger (17-19), only for around a month or two both times but would have immediate side effects; mostly anger and mood swings, the second time very sudden weight gain (which dropped straight after I stopped taking it). After that I tried the Merina IUD (also hormonal) because I expressed my concerns about hormonal birth control to my doctor. She recommended the Merina as it supposedly only released a very small amount of hormones within the uterus which would not circle my bloodstream. To be fair it went well for the first 2 years, but after that I went through absolute hell. Complete lack of appetite, anxiety (never expierenced before) which came with panic attacks, insomnia, my hair started falling out (potentially because I was eating less due to loss of appetite) and mild depression. Even though I was in a relationship I had it removed because I couldn’t bear the side effects. Within a few weeks I felt like an entirely new person; I actually felt like myself again.

    I spent a year not using any birth control whatsoever (condoms) but when I got into another relationship I looked into the copper IUD, which works as a spermicide rather than affecting hormones. I had to go to 3 doctors until one agreed to put one in (it is quite large and painful to insert, and often only recommended to women who have given birth). It lasts for 10 years (!!) and I am so glad I have it. I do have the side affects (my periods are heavier, last longer and I cramp a bit more) but these pale in comparison to the hormonal methods I have tried.
