I am on hormonal birth control or have an inserted device (like an IUD) for contraception. Can I still participate in the 14 Day Fast Start Challenge?Updated 3 months ago

Yes, absolutely! We have had many students complete the 14-Day Fast Start Challenge whilst using hormonal birth control like the pill or an inserted device like an IUD. These women were able to achieve incredible results and support their bodies whilst using contraception.

The Challenge arms you with simple, practical tips you can implement straight away to support your PCOS, which will be helpful regardless of using birth control or not. All of the tips we cover in the Challenge are gentle and do not impact medications like hormonal birth control.

By focussing on increasing your intake of nutrient-dense foods throughout the challenge, you will be able to address any potential nutrient deficiencies related to your hormonal birth control and support your body to function optimally. 

If or when you are ready to transition off birth control, you will be able to ensure you are optimally nourished and will likely have a much easier journey back to natural hormone production. This means your cycles will likely return faster and side effects like acne breakouts will be minimized. 

Throughout the PCOS Repair Book and Challenge, we also address many other key aspects of health like digestive function, stress hormones, micronutrient deficiencies, and hormone-friendly exercise. All of these protocols will be highly useful whilst still using hormonal birth control.
