Wondering if hormonal contraceptives are having negative side-effects? Trying to conceive or avoid a pregnancy? Just keen to be informed on your fertility?

Sounds like you need to see Natural Love Stories: The Film.

Produced by Natural Womanhood, this newly-released film follows couples who have made the switch from contraceptives to fertility awareness. They talk about how contraceptives affected the women’s bodies as well as the couple’s relationships, and the truth may surprise.

As a young woman myself, I think this is such an important resource. So many of my peers use hormonal contraceptives without a second thought, just because it is the norm. Little do they know the havoc it can wreak on their bodies and lives, because the information is not available to them!

It’s free to watch online – check it out here and see more about why it’s important here.
