Episode Info:

In modern medicine, the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) has become the panacea for virtually all forms of women's health issues. We are now over 60 years and several generations of women in to OCP use as a primary method of contraception and we're only beginning to unravel the long term health consequences. Today we're joined by women's health expert, Lara Briden, who shares with us why she describes the pill as 'reversible chemical castration' and why she is so passionate about empowering women to make better, informed decisions about their contraceptive options. Lara talks us through why shutting down ovulation is undesirable and what current and future options are out there to help couples manage their fertility choices. She also takes us through the herbal and nutritional interventions she employs in the management of 'post-pill syndrome'.
