One of the biggest questions we get around Ova Moon is,
“Is OVA MOON for me if I’m on the pill”?
The answer is most definitely YES!
It is so so so important that you support your body whilst on the pill in order to improve your health and better safeguard your body against its common side effects.
The pill contains synthetic hormones that can cause inflammation, disrupt gut and liver health, alter insulin levels and deplete nutrients (reducing B, E, C, Zinc and Selenium). So you want to ensure that you’re focused on the right foods that replenish these lost nutrients, as well as taking the right steps to support gut health, liver detoxification as well as the reduction of inflammation to help prevent any further imbalances taking place. OVA MOON is a perfect supplement to support you on the pill, or in coming off of it because our ingredients include:
When it comes to coming off the pill, your body is not used to creating its own hormones, and this can trigger a rebound effect as your body struggles to re-establish equilibrium which can lead to a flare up of the old symptoms you might have had that led you to start taking the pill in the first place. These symptoms might include acne, PMS, hair loss, no libido, heavy bleeding and irregular or missing periods. And since the pill only masks underlying menstrual imbalances, if you had issues before going on the pill they will likely return, so we want to help minimize these as much as possible.
To do this, Ova Moon focuses on these 3 important steps:
Replenishing nutrient deficiencies. Supporting your body’s natural detoxification system in order to clear yourself of the synthetic hormones still in your system. Attending to any underlying hormonal or health issues that were being “treated” (i.e, masked) by the pill (example: zinc helps with premenstrual acne).
This is your best bet to improving your health on and off the pill!
The same goes for the Hormonal IUD, Implanon, patch, depo...you name it Ova Moon has you covered.
Believe it or not, we recommend that people currently on Hormonal Contraceptives take the Prenatal Multivitamin, not the Hormone + Cycle Balancing Multivitamin because the latter also includes low doses of herbs. While highly unlikely, these herbs, namely vitex, could interfere with the contraceptive nature of the birth control. The prenatal is packed with the same ingredients that get depleted by the pill, but without the slight risk of interference.
