In case any of you were wondering, my body is officially free of artificial hormones. Almost two weeks ago, I threw out the last pill pack and said goodbye to OrthoTriCyclen Lo. It leaves me feeling a bit vunerable, though.
I began taking the pill when I was a freshman in college, fall 1996. So that's almost 8 years on the pill. What the hell is my body doing now? Is she going to revell or revolt? Prior to the pill, I was a regular gal. Will I be still?
So, with all these questions, I went a'googling. And, it's amazing the information available for women by women. Here's a sampling of what I found ...
~ Women's Moon Lodge on Moonsurfing.com : Our intention is for this virtual moon lodge to become a gathering place for women's voices concerning the cycles of their lives... a coming together for renewal and visioning.
~ Sister Zeus : A Women's Guide to Synergistic Fertility Management
~ The Cycles Pages : An online service to track your cycle. It can even email you when Aunt Flo is expected for a visit. How convenient.
~ Around the Moon fertility consultations : Not quite so informative, but read the personal story Awakening. Makes me feel positive about being naturally hormonal. :)
~ Menstruation.com.au : Feel great about being a woman every day of the month! And love these greeting cards.
