Your brain changes when you’re on birth control, that’s just the reality of it.
Unpacking the Pill: Sarah E. Hill on the History and Reality of Hormonal Birth Control
The conversation around birth control and contraception, and even fertility, is one we’ve been having for a while on the podcast. It’s an incredibly complex subject and one we’re excited to delve further into with Dr. Sarah E. Hill.
Dr. Sarah is the author of Your Brain On Birth Control, and she’s one the world’s foremost leaders on women’s health, especially as it relates to hormonal birth control and what influence it has on our bodies, our brains, and our lives.
“Coming off of birth control turned my view of myself upside down.” – Sarah E. Hill, Almost 30 Podcast
