    How to use cycle tracking to uncover hormonal imbalance

    How to use cycle tracking to uncover hormonal imbalance

    One common misconception about cycle tracking is that unless you’re using it for natural birth control or to help you get pregnant, there’s no reason to track your menstrual cycle. And, well, I couldn’t disagree more. In fact, cycle tracking helped me personally spot a dangerous and painful hormonal imbalance even while doctor after doctor said I was fine. On today’s episode of Menstrual Mastery we’re exploring why cycle tracking is an important hormonal health tool for all women regardless of birth control or fertility goals and how it can actually help you uncover hormonal imbalances in your cycle.



    Here's what you'll learn in today's episode...

    -- How tracking cervical fluid + temperature can help uncover hormonal imbalances

    -- You'll also learn how cycle tracking can help you get more out of your doctor visits and finally become an active participant in getting the health and healing you deserve!

    -- Lastly, you'll get 3 action steps you can take to start using cycle tracking to spot potential hormonal imbalances in your cycle too!

    How she overcame her fears around using natural birth control

    How she overcame her fears around using natural birth control

    Have you been reading about using cycle tracking as natural birth control and feeling riddled with worry, hesitation, and resistance?

    What if I get pregnant? What if I f*ck it up? What if I can't do it? What if it's too hard/too confusing/doesn't work?

    You are not alone. In fact, many women who have been using natural birth control with ease and confidence for years first started out with the same fears and hesitations you’re experiencing now.

    Joining me today is Alicia Short - a former Sauvage Wellness client who has been using cycle tracking as natural birth control and is here to share how she overcame the biggest and most common fears & hesitations when it comes to using the sympto-thermal method of natural birth control.

    When I first met Alicia she had been on hormonal birth control since high school and was tired of worrying about its impact on her health. She wanted a natural birth control option that didn’t alter her natural hormone production. HOWEVER, she was terrified of unplanned pregnancy, dreading using condoms all the time, and trusting a method that wasn’t the hormonal methods that are so commonly used.

    I am so excited to have Alicia here today because she so beautifully overcame these initial fears that I see SO many women struggling with and has been using the sympto-thermal method of natural birth control successfully for a year now!

    Here's what you can expect in today's episode...

    >> The most common fears & hesitations that women experience around using cycle tracking as natural birth control

    >> Why EDUCATION is the KEY to overcoming worry and fear about using the sympto-thermal method of natural birth control

    >> How to deal with resistance from partners, friends, & family members who just don't get it

    >> Alicia's advice for anyone who's interested in switching to the sympto-thermal method of natural birth control but feeling nervous



    If you’re ready to learn more about natural birth control, I want to help! Let’s chat 1-on-1! You can set up a free info session with me here.
