My History With Hormonal Birth Control, Healing My Cycles Through Acupuncture & Fertility Awareness

Probably the most highly requested video in the history of L’amour et la Musique. I sincerely hope this is informative and helpful to anyone considering alternatives to hormonal birth control. I am also hyper-aware of how complex and exceedingly personal this topic is, and I do not believe in a prescriptive, one-size-fits-all approach – with birth control, or anything in life. I look forward to some productive and enlightening discussion in the comments! xoxo, mercedes.

Disclaimer and a word on integrity: All products I talk about here on L’amour et la Musique are purchased with my own money, unless I explicitly mention that it was given to me either as a “PR sample” or gifted to me by friends/subscribers/et cetera. I will ALWAYS be fully transparent about any products given to me for review, that I did not seek out or purchase of my own accord. It is one of the biggest issues I have with YouTube – that many bloggers and YouTubers have just become a means to market products. That’s not why I do this. There is a huge difference between giving a rave to a product you researched and hemmed and hawed about spending your own money on, versus something given to you to test out. So, long-winded way of saying: all opinions expressed are entirely my own, and I strongly value honesty and integrity in real life and here on YouTube.
