A year ago our we both threw away our birth control pills. We decided to go for a trial period without taking hormones. Until October 2016 we both took Microgynon and we had both been taking the pill for about 20 years already. While wandering towards a greener lifestyle, you start to think about what’s healthy for your body as well. Once in a while we encounter stories online from other women about the birth control pills and their reasons to stop taking them. That made us think. Eating healthy, getting plenty of exercise and taking something unnatural like the pill didn’t seem right or logical. After some time of contemplating we decided to have a pill break for 1 year to see what would happen, to see what life would be like without taking the pill.
