Thank you, Holly Grigg-Spall, for joining the flow-versation! We go with the flow about considerations to be taken when deciding to begin taking hormonal oral contraceptives (aka The Pill.) Also, she discusses what you can do to prepare yourself for coming off of the Pill. She dug deep into the background of birth control pills after experiencing a side effect and she’s shared it with the world in her book: Sweetening the Pill. If you would like to check out Holly’s book and work with her, she can be reached at any of her various outlets.
