Introducing The Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week

To give you some perspective, it is estimated that 100 million women worldwide currently use hormonal birth control...

...And almost 60% use it for reasons other than birth control.

We’re talking some serious “band-aid” medicine for conditions that have a root cause.

Clinically, Dr. Jolene Brighten has found the majority of women struggle to break up with birth control and often develop a condition known as Post-Birth Control Syndrome (PBCS).

Women are fearful to stop. And they feel trapped, as their doctor tells them this is the only solution available for their symptoms.

And worse, they are told that their symptoms of PBCS are not real and that their only solution is to get back on birth control.

This is a huge disservice to women and they (we) deserve better.

In her medical practice she has helped thousands of women eliminate PBCS and successfully transition off of hormonal birth control...

Within this Awareness Week in November, we are going to  offer women resources, knowledge, but maybe more importantly, hope.

Get signed up to help us bring awareness to this very important health issue.

Hi First Name,

If you’ve been struggling with acne, PMS, PCOS, hot flashes, mood swings, low libido, hormonal headaches, period pain, infertility, fatigue, brain fog, or any of the other myriad of hormonal symptoms that keep women from feeling their best, then I want to invite you to join a very special online hormone conference that is also raising awareness about Post-Birth Control Syndrome and birth control related side effects.

And maybe your doctor has recommended hormonal birth control as the only solution to your hormone imbalances.

You’re not alone. In fact, about 58% of women using hormonal birth control are given to treat symptoms, not prevent pregnancy.

Crazy, right!?!

Because the story in women’s medicine goes...
You have PMS? Take birth control.
You have painful periods? Take birth control.
You have hormonal headaches? Take birth control.
You have acne? Take birth control.

And then the side effects creep in... depression, loss of libido, yeast infections, gut symptoms, fatigue, and more.

Sadly, this is when women are either passed a new medication, outright dismissed for having symptoms or maybe switched to a different type of contraception.

There is a better way to balance hormones and my good friend, Dr. Jolene Brighten, has brought together the leading experts in women’s health in over 50 classes all so you can optimize your hormone health naturally and stay safe if you are on birth control.

I know you will find the answers to the hormone questions you have during this event.

And to make it easy for you to find the exact information you need, there are 6 speaker tracks...

  1. Track 1: Post-Birth Control Syndrome
    Off birth control and now your hormones are worse than when you started? Find out what to do to bring your hormones back into balance.
  2. Track 2: Resolving Skin Problems and Preventing Breakouts:
    If acne, eczema, rashes or chronic yeast infections is your core problem since starting or stopping birth control we’ll cover what you can do about both here.
  3. Track 3: Reversing Period Problems
    So your doc told you the only hope to “fix” your period problems is birth control? Heavy periods? Painful periods? Missing periods? Unpredictable periods? This track will help you get your period back to normal.
  4. Track 4: Prevent Birth Control Side Effects
    This track will help you understand why birth control causes the side effects it does and what you can do about it -- whether you plan to stay on birth control or come off. Girl, I’ve got you.
  5. Track 5: Recover Libido and Fertility
    If your libido or fertility have been off since your experience with birth control, this track reveals why, what you can do about it and how you can finally get “in the mood” again.
  6. Track 6: Cancer, Mood and Metabolism
    You may have heard about the studies that link birth control to cancer, mood disorders and a break down in women’s metabolism. Truth is, a lot of women struggle with their weight from the day they begin birth control. This track will address what you can do about these things with the most up-to-date research.

There are incredible doctors, researchers, and health advocates who are dedicated to helping you eliminate unwanted hormone symptoms, get the full story about birth control side effects, and are ready to support you no matter if you want use birth control or stop.

Option 2: Influencer

A // OMG -- I never heard of this but so many women have it
B // Post-Birth Control Syndrome: Avoid it. Heal from it.

I just didn’t know this affected so many women. Or that so many of the women I love (including myself) might be at risk.

In a recent conversation with my friend Dr. Jolene Brighten, I learned that every woman who has used hormonal birth control is at risk for Post-Birth Control Syndrome.

PBCS is defined by Dr. Brighten as…”the collection of disruptive symptoms women face once they’ve concluded the use of hormonal birth control.” <LINK>

Women may struggle with any of the following since starting or getting off birth control:

  • Headaches
  • Hair loss
  • Libido loss
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic yeast infections
  • Chronic UTIs
  • Cystic acne, outbreaks, and rashes
  • Irregular or nonexistent periods
  • Painful or heavy periods

And the most heartbreaking part? PBCS can make it impossible to have children on your own once you’ve stopped birth control. Know anyone struggling to conceive? This could be why.

To help women everywhere, Dr. Brighten is hosting Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week November 5-11, 2018. <LINK>

During this special week, you can take online classes (without paying anything) to learn more about PBCS, how to heal it and how to avoid it.

Because this is so critically important and because over 90% of women will take birth control at some point in their life, I’m going to ask you to do something I rarely do: share this.

Together we can put an end to the silent suffering women face and we can let women everywhere know that it’s not “all in her head.”

Option 3: For Provider/Practitioner/Physicians with a list

A // Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week
B // The most important thing I’ve EVER shared (critical hormone info)

If your life has been touched by birth control you need to hear this, First Name.

There’s an emerging epidemic facing women globally when they stop taking hormonal birth control.

This epidemic causes major challenges for women’s hormones including hair loss, weight gain, mood swings, anxiety, insomnia, libido loss, cystic acne, and digestive disorders.

Even worse -- it’s preventing women who want to have children from doing so -- it forces their reliance on further medical intervention.

This epidemic is called Post-Birth Control Syndrome (PBCS). <LINK>

Who’s affected and how to know if you’re at risk:

PBCS is defined by Dr. Jolene Brighten (the physician who first identified the syndrome) as

the collection of disruptive symptoms women face once they’ve concluded the use of hormonal birth control.”

These symptoms can include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • Hair loss
  • Libido loss
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic yeast infections and UTIs
  • Cystic acne, outbreaks, and rashes
  • Irregular or nonexistent periods
  • Infertility, difficulty conceiving
  • Painful, heavy periods

If you or a woman you love has experienced any of these symptoms since getting on or off hormonal birth control, there is a chance that PBCS is the cause.

The longer the exposure to hormonal birth control, the higher the risk.

PBCS can be reversed.

Post-Birth Control Syndrome can be reversed, First Name. Dr. Brighten has developed a treatment protocol (The Brighten Protocol) for women’s hormones that not only reverses PBCS but also balances women’s intricate hormonal matrix for healthy, normal periods and fertility.

Learn more with Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week classes.
Dr. Brighten is hosting the first annual Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week <LINK> November 5-11, 2018.

This week is full of free online classes <LINK> that will help you reverse this syndrome and heal your own body. You’ll also learn things like:

  • Questions you should ask your doctor about birth control
  • How to prevent the side effects of birth control if you’re already on it
  • Natural fertility and contraceptive methods so you don’t have to rely on pharmaceuticals
  • How to reverse PBCS if you have it

Spread the word: the symptoms aren’t “all in your head.”

If you know a woman whose life has been touched by hormonal birth control, please forward this email to her. When we have the tools to name the problem, we can take action to reverse it.

But most women don’t know about PBCS -- yet. And many suffer in silence, never telling friends or family about their symptoms because their doctors have told them it’s “all in her head.”

It’s not all in her head. PBCS is real and can harm a woman’s health if left untreated.

Will you forward this email and send this to at least two women? Together, we can fight PBCS and make it possible for women to heal.

Option 4: To lists of Providers/Practitioners/Physicians

A // If you regularly treat women with birth control, read this.
B // Don’t prescribe more birth control without reading this.
C // What we weren’t told about birth control
D // First Name, heard of Post-Birth Control Syndrome?

Hi First Name,

Do you have patients who’ve experienced unusual responses to hormonal birth control?

Have you met patients with excessive fear and worry about using it?

Have you wondered about it yourself but lacked the time to research it given your hectic schedule?

If you prefer to provide natural solutions and root cause solutions to your patients, then you’re invited to join Dr. Jolene Brighten, Women’s Health Expert and leading authority on Post-Birth Control Syndrome as she marks the first Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week November 5-11, 2018. <LINK>

The truth is there isn’t enough information shared with providers about the impact of hormonal birth control -- so we find patients back in our offices needing to switch birth control or come off it all together without real clarity about why.

We see patterns emerge but we’re not always sure what they mean about the drugs themselves or about the women's hormones we’re treating.

Why were we told side effects were rare but then regularly see women who question whether their reactions are “normal”?

Why were we never told how hormonal birth control could make symptoms worse -- before we prescribe them?

The emerging pattern we’re seeing is what Dr. Brighten has termed Post-Birth Control Syndrome. Her research defines this as ”the collection of disruptive symptoms women face once they’ve concluded the use of hormonal birth control.”

Post-Birth Control Syndrome (PBCS) can be reversed, First Name. Dr. Brighten has developed a treatment protocol (The Brighten Protocol) for women’s hormones that not only reverses PBCS but also balances women’s hormonal matrix for healthy, normal periods and natural fertility.

Dr. Jolene Brighten is the founder of 3 health clinics, and currently practices in Oakland, CA and Portland, OR. She’s the medical director of 3 sister clinics, Rubus Health. She’s the author of the groundbreaking book, Beyond the Pill, aimed at empowering women to protect their body on the pill and addressing the devastating effects of Post-Birth Control Syndrome.

You can learn more about Dr. Brighten and Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness Week here. <LINK>

The Awareness Week content she’s developed will focus on reversing and avoiding the symptoms of PBCS naturally. The practitioners she’s interviewing have each been carefully curated and vetted to provide the most cutting edge solutions they’ve actually seen WORK with clients and patients in practice.

I know you’re busy, so when you sign up and purchase the entire event <LINK> you’ll receive both video and audio for your convenience to help you get the information you need to help your patients and understand how PBCS works.

Please pass this along to any practitioner or physician you know who works with women on hormonal birth control. Raising awareness is the first step toward allowing physicians to do what they do best: heal people through the practice of medicine.

But we can’t do our job well unless we have adequate information.

P.S. The first Post-Birth Control Syndrome Awareness week will be held November 5-11, First Name. <LINK> There will be six days of complementary and educational content that will help you better understand the challenges facing women who use hormonal birth control. Please pass this along to any practitioner working with women using these drugs.
