Episode 3: Hormonal Birth Control - The Ultimate Frenemy?

March 12, 2018

Happy Belated International Women's Day, gals (and lads).

This week, we chat about hormonal contraception - the good parts, the bad parts and the nasty parts. Do we know enough about what we put in our bodies, and why is birth control mostly a women's responsibility?

Before recording, we asked our listeners to share their experiences too, which we discuss on the show. 


Disclaimer: We're not doctors. Everything on this episode is solely based on personal experiences. You're better off chatting with your GP if you're having any issues with birth control.



From time to time, we mention websites, articles and Facebook pages in our episodes.
