Birth Control Cleanse

Your body is designed to eliminate toxins with no help, so you might be wondering if a “detox” like our Balance Drink Mix is really necessary. It’s a fair question! And there’s no one right answer. There are some basic things you should know when deciding if Balance would be helpful to you.

Birth Control Basics

First, a really quick review of how birth control works—we promise not to dork out on you with details, but it’s really helpful to understand what happens in your body when you’re on birth control. Birth control methods, like the pill, the patch, IUDs, etc. use the hormones estrogen and progestin to prevent ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovaries). The lining of your uterus changes to prevent pregnancy and even the mucus of your cervix (the opening of the uterus) to prevent sperm from entering.

These are all really great things when you’re trying NOT to get pregnant. But when you’re ready to try to conceive, your body needs time to regulate your hormonal balance and reestablish fertility.

Your Body’s Natural Detox

Now, your body is pretty amazing and, as we said before, can handle this process on its own. Your liver will create bile to break down and eliminate fat-soluble toxins and excess hormones, but it does take a while. For most women, it takes 3-6 months for the body to eliminate the unwanted hormones and re-regulate.

When to Opt for Balance

These are some common reasons why you may want to try Balance.

  1. You’re ready to try to conceive, and time is not on your side.

    When it comes to age or other factors. 3-6 months is a long time in the world of TTC, when conception takes up to a year on average for healthy couples.
  2. You’re ready to try to conceive, and you don’t want to wait.

    This is a totally valid reason and not to be discounted. When you’re ready to have a baby, you’re ready!
  3. You have irregular cycles and/or PCOS.

    Balance has been shown to help regulate cycles and ease symptoms of PCOS. Just check out the rave reviews!
  4. You have persistent PMS symptoms.

    Many women who’ve never even taken birth control take Balance for relief from PMS symptoms, such as cramping, irritability, bloating, etc.

What Balance Does

Balance helps facilitate your body’s natural processes to eliminate excess hormones and reestablish fertility using natural, but powerful nutrients. In most cases, it helps your body work its magic faster.

Here are some of its superstar ingredients and what they do:


Our product’s main ingredient. Chasteberry is a natural source of progesterone and helps normalize the ratio of progesterone to estrogen. By balancing your hormones, chasteberry allows your cycles to become regular again. It also works to strengthen and tone the uterus, supporting its function.*

Vitamin C + E 

Prompts liver function by promoting the breakdown and removal of excess estrogen, hormones and toxins stored in the body while nourishing and regenerating the liver cells. Vitamin C increases progesterone in the body, which helps regulate menstrual cycles, thicken the lining of the uterus and improves ovarian function.*


Iodine is crucial for its role in proper thyroid function. The thyroid releases hormones into the bloodstream so the hormones can reach the body’s cells. Iodine also works to improve symptoms of PCOS including a reduction of ovarian cysts and regulation of periods.* 


Reduces stress, may improve insulin resistance (helping women with PCOS), improves PMS symptoms, helps you sleep better, and combats inflammation (all of which is crucial for hormone balance).


Beneficial for proper thyroid function + immune health.Helps in the removal of free radicals from the thyroid and prevents the thyroid from aging. Helps to prevent the build up of scar tissue in the thyroid.

This natural birth control cleanse has benefits for your ovary and uterus. It is a seamless way to prepare your body for pregnancy, and the perfect first step for all women trying to conceive.
