The Secret to Balanced Hormones, Natural Fertility, and Healthy Periods WITHOUT hormonal birth control
Have you gotten off birth control (or still on it) but now your initial symptoms are worse?
Were you on birth control for acne, PCOS, irregular periods, PMS, mood swings, or other issues, and noticed these are worse since getting off birth control? Correcting Post-Birth Control Syndrome doesn’t have to require more prescriptions.
Are your periods a hot mess?Whether it’s unpredictable, too painful or too heavy, your period doesn’t have to be something you dread. It’s possible to have predictable, pain-free periods that don’t require days off work or multiple changes of clothes. You just need to know what went wrong with your body so you can make it right. I can show you how.
Do you suspect birth control caused more problems than it solved?
If you’re off the pill or thinking about getting off and but heard about Post Birth Control Syndrome (hair loss, missing periods, acne, no libido and more), there is a way to detox your body of the hormones and chemicals so it can go back to your normal.
This course was built for you.
Post-Birth Control Rx™

Know enough about your body to ask the right questions when you go to the doctor, and manage your hormones naturally in between visits.
- Boost your libido and hair growth
If you’ve been losing hair on your head only to regrow it in all the wrong places, this course will help you reverse that trend (and boost your sex-drive in the process.)
- Correct painful, irregular, heavy periods and cysts once and for all
Whether it’s PCOS or a different diagnosis that caused you to get on birth control, I can show you how to reverse the symptoms that caused the initial problem.
- Clear up painful and embarrassing acne, backne, and neckne
Cystic acne can ruin your self esteem, not to mention the pain and discomfort of it. What you’ll learn in this course can help you clear up the skin on your face, back and neck — for good.
- Fix your moods, anxiety and insomnia so you can feel normal again
If you get teary for no reason, melt down on your partner and friends, feel short-tempered at work and checkout lines, can’t sleep, and are anxious and worried all the time, this course can help you finally feel sane again.
- Prepare your body to conceive
Whether you want to have a baby or not, the ability to conceive is a sign of optimal health for a woman. You don’t have to want a baby right now to want your body to function at its best.
- Prevent pregnancy naturally
If you just can’t do the hormones anymore but you need a birth control method that works, you’ll learn it here. No more putting your body at risk while preventing pregnancy, no more risking pregnancy to avoid birth control side effects.
Get your period and your hormones back to normal… even if they were never normal to begin with
Have you experienced medical red-flags:
Have you said any of these things to your doctor?
- Something’s not right, this isn’t my body.
- Should it take this long for my body to go back to normal?
- Is there something you can give me to stop my hair from falling out?
- Is it normal to feel like I don’t want to have sex anymore?
- Why is my skin suddenly breaking out?
Have you tried to become your own doctor when yours wasn’t listening?
- ...With late nights googling your symptoms only to discover forums full of other women going through the same things?
- ...Read abstracts of research papers you didn’t understand only to get more confused?
- ...Tried multiple supplements, turning yourself into a human guinea pig just to get some relief?
…If you’re done with experiences like these, meet Dr. Jolene Brighten
An internationally recognized leading authority on Post-Birth Control Syndrome and the long term side effects of birth control.
Like so many women, I struggled with my period, too.
Shortly after I got my period, I started keeping extra clothes in my school locker because my bleeding was so heavy, pads and tampons just weren’t enough. Eventually my doctor decided birth control was the best option for me. And I thought it was a godsend -- no more bleeding for 7-8 days every month, no more packing a change of clothes everywhere I went, and I was pain-free enough to walk.
But then the mood issues started -- I snapped at people, cried for no reason -- I just wasn’t myself. I also suffered from chronic inflammation, deep depression and gastrointestinal issues. The worst part was losing my libido on the pill in my 20s.
My doctor didn’t listen.
When I told my doctor I suspected it was the pill, he told me he doubted it but was willing to “experiment” and give me a different pill. Within 48 hours of switching, I felt normal again; this was my first clue that maybe these hormonal drugs might be more harmful than we knew. During my 10 years on the pill, each of my doctors shrugged off my challenges and told me it was all in my head.
It took months to get my period back.
Thankfully I was studying medicine and had a degree in nutritional biochemistry when I got off the pill and lost my period for several months. “It’s fine. Women don’t need to have a period,” my doctor said, but this didn’t seem right to me.
And the cherry on top of this hormonal chaos? I developed horrific acne.
So I implemented everything I learned in class and healed myself. I ate all the right foods, took the herbs, you name it. Eventually, my period came back but I was crippled in pain every month. I kept going and eventually, things got 1000% better.
I developed the Brighten Protocol™ to help women like us recover.
I started researching the impact of birth control when a girlfriend whose period didn’t come back after the pill wanted a baby. Through my research I discovered almost ALL WOMEN are impacted by the pill in some way, and have worse side effects when they get off.
I developed the Brighten Protocol™ to help my friend and she (along with many more women) were able to undo the damage caused by birth control and finally conceive.
The side effects of getting off the pill are what I call Post-Birth Control Syndrome and can last anywhere from several months to several years but they don’t have to -- you can intervene and get your body back to normal (even if it was never normal before the pill.)

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have Post Birth Control Syndrome and your hormones weren’t normal when you got on the pill, this course can help correct both your post- and pre- birth control symptoms.
After 15 years of birth control, I was pregnant in less than a year!
I had been on birth control for almost 15 years before I started following Dr. Brighten's protocol. My doctor had said I needed it for my PMS and heavy bleeding. I never thought to ask since I was a teenager at the time and was just happy to have easy periods.
But after I stopped the pill my period never came back. My doctor assured me that it would be fine, but after 6 months of no period her only answer was to go back on the pill. I was heartbroken. My husband and I wanted to have a baby, but the only answers I was getting was to go back on the pill or have infertility treatments.
Instead, Dr. Brighten took me through a whole protocol to get my body ready for conception. I appreciated that Dr. Brighten took the approach of helping my body get back on track and supporting my overall health, rather than just treating my hormones.
After 7 months of following the Brighten Protocol™ I was pregnant! My husband and I weren’t even trying at this point. We were thrilled and so grateful for Dr. Brighten’s help.
To my surprise, my libido is back! We’re more intimate than we have been in years!
Within a month I was off the medication my doctor had prescribed and had more energy. My mood improved too, which was something my other doctor had been trying to give me an antidepressant for.
My periods, which had been really irregular and often made me really moody were much easier. I originally did the Brighten Protocol™ just for my heartburn, but I didn’t realize how my hormones and digestion were connected and how I could have better hormones by working on my digestion.
And to my surprise, my libido was back—something I had given up on. And my husband and I are more intimate then we have been in years!
My period is now predictable AND easy, plus I get a ton of compliments on my skin!
After the pill my hormones were wrecked. I never knew when my period was coming and when it did I would have such bad cramps that I would throw up. And my acne was the worst! Thanks to following the Brighten Protocol™, my period is predictable, easy and I get a ton of compliments on my skin. I can't believe how long I struggled with doctors telling me to just stay on the pill. I cannot ever express just how grateful I am for what I’ve learned. Thank you, Dr. Brighten!
Within a few months I wasn’t crying for weeks on end and my periods are so easy!
I thought PMS was normal until I discovered the Brighten Protocol™. I had really painful periods and spent about half of the month crying and feeling anxious. I was originally interested in the Brighten Protocol™ to resolve stomach problems and it turned out that all of what I was experiencing was related. I followed the diet plan and within a few months of being treated I was no longer crying for weeks at a time. My stomach got better and my periods are so easy now.
Dr. Brighten is genuinely interested in helping me!
Dr. Brighten is the best! She is patient, thorough, attentive and genuinely interested in helping me get better. I had tried everything before I met Dr. Brighten. She helped me get my health back and I am forever grateful to her.
