What is

Coming off the pill

Transitioning off the oral contraceptive pill can be a significant change for the body, and how it reacts to this change is unknown. While you're on any hormonal contraceptive pill, your natural hormonal production is essentially switched off. And your cycle is being governed by the synthetic hormones you're taking. When this stops suddenly, your body needs to quickly learn how to start making hormones again, and therefore establish a cycle. This can bring about symptoms relating to the hormonal shift. Naturopathic medicine offers supportive strategies to ease this transition, addressing potential hormonal imbalances and promoting overall reproductive health.


  • If you’re still on hormonal contraceptive, possible no symptoms yet
  • Irregular menstrual cycles or amenorrhea (absence of periods)
  • Mood swings 
  • Acne
  • PMS symptoms
  • Period pain
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Possible weight changes
  • Changes in libido

Treatment options

We start with an individualised assessment to identify any possible underlying hormonal imbalances and support the body's natural hormone production. We prime the systems and organs in the body that are involved with natural hormonal production and support these so that they can kick into doing their job again after a hormonal hiatus. We look into targeted nutritional therapy and herbal medicine to help support balance in establishing a healthy menstrual cycle again and addressing any symptoms that arise in response to this change.
