Can I Seed Cycle on Hormonal Birth Control?
Heck ya you can! And actually, we recommend it! Here are a few reasons why it's beneficial to seed cycle if you're taking hormonal birth control:
Gut health! Seeds contain prebiotic fiber which is beneficial for gut health. Studies have shown that oral contraceptives negatively impact gut flora and estrogen metabolism, so taking care of your gut is important.
Nutrient Support! The pill can deplete riboflavin, B6, B12, folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium, and zinc. Seed Cycling can support you in replenishing those nutrients through food!
Starting a relationship with your cycle! While you are not cycling or ovulating on birth control, seed cycling is a wonderful practice to start creating a relationship with your cycle for when you get off of birth control.
If you are on birth control you can either follow the schedule of your birth control OR moon cycle! Remember to talk with your trusted health profession about making any changes!
