Doing It Different

Aug 24, 2021

Today's episode is one of my absolute favorites on a topic that we don't discuss enough - natural, non-hormonal birth control. Today I ask - what if you could have unprotected sex the majority of the month, without worry, and without having to be on hormonal birth control?

Sound too good to be true? Well, you might be surprised to find out that more and more women are taking control of their fertility without hormonal or potentially invasive methods of contraception.
