MENSTRUAL CYCLE DYSFUNCTION
Hormonal birth control works as an endocrine disruptor shutting off the communication from the brain to the ovaries.
It supresses hormones, changes cervical mucus and thins the endometrial lining so that sperm can’t survive. Types of hormonal contraception:
• Monophasic pills are a combination pill that are used in one month’s cycles, with each pill containing the same amount of synthetic hormone across the 21 days. For the last week of the cycle, the pills only contain sugar to induce a withdrawal bleed. This bleed is not your period, it is a result of the drop in synthetic hormones causing the lining of the uterus to be shed. • Combination birth control pills are a combination of synthetic estrogen and progesterone and are segmented across the cycle. Examples of this type of pill are Brenda, Yaz and the NuvaRing contraceptive patches. • The Mini Pill is a synthetic progesterone only pill. Synthetic progesterone is known as Progestin and can also come in the form of injections.
