Birth Control

It took a friend getting breast cancer for me to start questioning the pill.

Don’t wait for your friend to get breast cancer or your neighbour to die of a pulmonary embolism or heart attack because they are on hormonal contraception. Make the change now.

What made me change my birth control

I was on hormonal contraception. I actually remember being quite excited starting Yaz.

It was like I had entered adulthood. Every morning I would pop my pill, not thinking about what it was doing to my body. Even though I was an elite athlete and it was preventing me from reaching my peak performance. Even though it was preventing my body from doing what it was supposed to do every month. Even though it stopped every single system in my body from working – I thought it was great. Come on, we could have sex and I wouldn’t fall pregnant!

I did this for five years and then during one run on a Wednesday morning, I started chatting to a woman named Heidi who had been diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. This conversation changed my life forever. She said to me that morning that she felt that one of the three reasons she got breast cancer was her use of hormonal contraception. This hit a nerve for me: was I increasing my chance of breast cancer?

Yes I was – my chances of getting breast cancer and liver cancer were increased by 50%. If you are on hormonal contraception for more than four years, your chances of getting cancer get higher and higher.

At the same time, my body was being stripped of all my B vitamins, my zinc and iron. And I was effecting my future fertility – I may not have fallen pregnant.

My wakeup call was Heidi. It took a friend getting breast cancer for me to start questioning the pill. Don’t wait for your friend to get breast cancer or your neighbour to die of a pulmonary embolism or heart attack because they are on hormonal contraception. Make the change now.

I decided that I would rather fall pregnant than continue to use something that could increase my chance of getting breast cancer (P.S. I didn’t fall pregnant until many years later when I was ready to).

This is where my life changed:

  • I stopped Yaz
  • I started charting my cycle
  • I started having control of my body
  • I started listening to my body

I enrolled with Justisse Healthworks for women to become the first practitioner in this method in Africa, because I felt that I needed to pass this information on to other women.
