ponders on contraception…

RachadminBook Reviews, Menstrual Health, Musings

Having been reading the Selling of Contraception… (see article here https://www.moontimes.co.uk/blog/2011/06/03/ ) It’s left me wondering how it came to be that women began to hand their health over to men?

After a herstory (history) of women healers using their intuition, along come men and science who then take the power (remember the ‘witch’ burning?) and start feeding us drugs and telling us they are natural?? (or so my doctor tried to tell me about The Pill!!  …. well read Alexandra Pope’s PILL book to find out how natural it is!)

The whole contraception idea came about when politicians (men) decided the population needed curbing- and what better way to sell contraception to women than by telling them it would EMPOWER them, give them CHOICES about when to have a family, FREE them from the terrible emotional roller coater ride of their natural CYCLE!! And we fell for it!

When really there is no need for contraception- our natural CYCLE tells us very clearly when we are ovulating- and if we want to avoid pregnancy (or indeed get pregnant) we need to take THE TIME to LISTEN to our body!

I recently saw on TV that Boots have an inventor who has made a sensor that monitors a womans temperature to tell her when she is fertile- of course a thermometer can do thats just as easily! and its less expensive!

I really wish more women would take the time to use their NATURAL WOMENS WISDOM which is freely given to them, in built in their body to support them through life!
