For many, the first step towards committing to starting a family is when the decision is made to come off birth control.
After being on hormonal birth control for years it can take your body some time to adjust to your cycles reverting back to “all natural.” Thankfully there are things you can do to support your body as it gets back into its own natural rhythm.
Check out these five things you can do after stopping birth control:
Try a Birth Control Cleanse
Coming off of birth control, chances are your hormones will be out of whack. Flushing your body of the synthetic hormones ingested over the years is a step towards finding balance and prepping for conception. Start with a Birth Control Cleanse as an easy, effective method to help your body get back on track. We created the 28-day Birth Control Cleanse with the driving ingredient chaste berry to restore the body's natural balance by removing your excess hormones. This cleanse helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and is designed to nourish, support, tone and gently cleanse the liver and uterus in preparation for implantation.
Start taking a prenatal vitamin
If you’re planning to start trying to conceive, it is important to start taking a good prenatal vitamin. Premama Prenatal Vitamin or Premama Organic Prenatal Gummies with Iron & DHA have all essential nutrients to ensure you’re nourishing your body to prepare for pregnancy.
Getting adequate sleep is crucial to healthy hormonal health. Focus on making your sleep a priority. This can be by establishing a regular bedtime routine that leaves you feeling relaxed and ready for bed.
Boost Your Fertility with Supplements
After consuming the Birth Control Cleanse for 28-days, Premama Fertility Support for Her is the next step. Made specifically to help boost your reproductive function naturally, it's formulated with Folate and Myo-Inositol—ingredients clinically shown to help improve ovulatory function and egg quality.
Track Your Cycles
The best way to figure out what is going on with your hormones, is to track your cycles. You can do this by tracking your basal body temperature, using ovulate test kits, or even some of the new wearable cycle trackers. This is your gateway into understanding what is happening during each stage of your cycle while also pinpointing your most fertile days.
With time and some TLC, most women find their natural cycles align after coming off birth control in two to three months. If you find it’s taking longer for your body to adjust, it’s never a bad idea to speak with your OB/Gyn about your specific situation.
Cheers to taking that next step towards baby!
