  • Ladies- Hormone and Birth Control Update

    I received my hormone results and everything is normal. I went off birth control (Apri low dose but I have been on many different ones over the 7 years) two months ago and last week got the Paragaurd IUD, which is non-hormonal. I'm not sure if its the non-inflammatory diet or going off the bc but I am having a lot fewer hot flashes or rosacea flushing. My eyes don't look any better but I think they feel SLIGHTLY better. It's good to be off the hormonal bc even if my levels checked out ok. BTW, the paragaurd was fully paid by my insurance and lasts for 10 years.
