Everyone’s journey is different. Find the right package for you:
...with hormonal birth control.
When your relationship began, maybe it was exciting, relieving, and you felt supported.
Or perhaps you felt pressured into it, being told it was your only option for managing symptoms, and you have always questioned if it was a healthy relationship.
Or maybe you broke up a while ago, but you are still healing from the split.
Perhaps you are worried about what birth control is doing to your hormones, body, and future fertility.
unwanted side effects
taking a pharmaceutical
naturally balanced hormones
about preparing for a baby
It may be time to have "The Talk" with the pill.
(Or the patch, shot, implant, ring, or IUD)
Breakups can be tricky!
Birth control breakups are no different.
Sometimes breakups leave you hurting; feeling worse than you did when you were in the relationship.
We often see this with "post-pill syndrome" or "post birth control syndrome."
Some of the biggest reasons why women are worried about stopping birth control is due to fear of:
The thing is, these unwanted symptoms we see when stopping birth control often happen when there was little prep or support before the breakup, leading many women wanting to call birth control up and get back together!
This was the case for Jessica, who said,
“I stopped birth control before because it ruins my mood and sex drive, but my terrible period cramps came back so I decided to just get back on it. I feel bad on it and off of it, so I need help."
And Maggie, who shared,
“I’ve been on it so long in my life it is hard to break away. Doctors are always so convinced it is necessary. There has to be another way to balance my hormones!”
And Natalie, who shared,
“I want to be a mom soon, so I want to detox birth control and prepare my body before that happens, but I don't know how to do that."
If you can relate to these woman, I'm glad you found me! I'm Dr. Leah
...a licensed naturopathic and functional medicine doctor and fertility consultant.
I specialize in Breaking Up with Birth Control™, natural preconception & fertility, natural IVF support, & root-cause hormone balancing.
I am the founder of Womanhood Wellness™, the founding formulator at Needed™, a medical contributor at Motherly™, an avid speaker, and was recently featured in the new HBOMax documentary, "Not So Pretty."
My passion behind Womanhood Wellness™ was sparked out of my own personal journey struggling with birth control issues, low libido, painful periods, and male-factor infertility requiring IVF.
If you are considering breaking up with birth control to get your body back or start to prepare for pregnancy, I'm so glad you are here!
The thought of stopping birth control can be scary.
"What if my painful periods or acne come back?"
"What if I lose all of my hair."
"What if I feel worse than I did before taking it?"
What if I become pregnant before I am ready?"
I can promise you that if you stop birth control without the essential health and hormone education, lifestyle, dietary, and natural medicine support you need, you are much more likely to experience your biggest fears when it comes to this season of your womanhood journey.
Hormonal birth control has been shown to contribute to:
- Low libido (sex drive)
- Gut and digestive issues, such as bloating, nausea, constipation, and microbiome changes
- Anxiety, depression, and mood imbalances
- Headaches and migraines
- Hormonal imbalances such as low testosterone and high estrogen
- Sleep disturbances
- Nutrient depletion
- Fertility issues
- Vaginal dryness and painful sex
- Thyroid issues leading to weight gain, hair loss, brain fog, and fatigue
- Increased risk of clots and stroke
- Increased risk of cancers
- Increased risk of diabetes and high blood pressure
- Increased risk of autoimmune diseases
- Increased risk of gallbladder and liver disease
- Increased inflammation, which can lead to most chronic diseases
If you feel ready to say goodbye to hormonal birth control, I invite you to join me for
Breaking Up With Birth Control™

A Peek Inside the Program
"The Breaking Up with Birth Control course was incredible. It is packed with empowering knowledge, tools, and practices to help women transform their health and well-being for the better. Dr. Leah is a skilled teacher and communicator who does her research so you don’t have to. She is honest, credible, passionate, and kind! Highly recommend this course."
"The information you get in this program is so important for any woman regardless of whether you plan to go off birth control or become pregnant. Dr. Gordon covers the pros and cons of different birth control methods, how hormonal birth control affects the body, the importance of our hormones and how to make lifestyle changes to be happier and healthier. This is health 101 for women and I highly recommend it."
"Breaking up with Birth Control was one of the most important things I have ever done for myself. Deciding to take this class changed my life. The amount of information Dr. Gordon included was incredible. It was worth every penny! I described this course to my friends as the “Ultimate Women’s Health Class”. It is everything I wish they had taught me in health. I feel so much more empowered in my life just knowing and understanding how my body is designed and all the amazing things that it’s doing all month long."

- weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, low libido, anxiety, depression, numbness toward life, gut issues, bloating, acne, or any other unwanted symptoms
- Dislike the thought of your hormones being controlled by a pharmaceutical
- Want to make sure birth control hasn't impacted your fertility

- Wonder what TO DO and what NOT TO DO when navigating a birth control breakup to avoid post birth control syndrome and an unplanned pregnancy
"This course has truly changed my life. I came in to the course feeling helpless and clueless on how to support my health and had no idea why I was experiencing such extreme period symptoms. I have also had a long term fear that I will have infertility issues one day because of how terrible my periods are, I knew something was not right. Fast forward three months after the breaking up with birth control course and I feel like a changed woman! Because of how much I learned from Dr. Leah in this course, I am now empowered to take control of my body and implement changes to improve my overall health and wellness. And Dr. Leah makes it so easy to do so by providing action steps geared toward women all across the health and hormonal spectrum. I have already implemented so many changes and have felt a significant impact from doing so, and no longer feel helpless or afraid. I really would recommend this course to all women, no matter where you are in your birth control journey."

"I don't know if I am ready to stop it yet, can I do the program?"
Even if you aren’t ready to break up with birth control right now, it’s essential to know what to do when the time comes to do so! Everything you learn will also help you IMMENSELY even if you choose to stay on it!
"I already stopped birth control, will this still help me?
Absolutely! The same formula I walk you through applies before or AFTER breaking up with birth control.
When a woman is handed a prescription for birth control, she should also be handed an easy to understand, clear, and simple guidebook on exactly how to support herself while taking it, the essential steps to take before stopping it, as well as the resources she needs to balance her hormones in her post-pill days.
Unfortunately, women are not handed that simple guidebook. In fact, they are rarely supported at all once the decision to take the pill, or any other form of birth control, is made. They are left unsupported for years while the pill, patch, ring, shot, implant, or IUD is depleting their body, destroying their gut, changing their brain, and covering up root-causes of hormonal imbalances.
It’s no wonder so many women are struggling with hormonal imbalances and infertility these days.
As women, we need support. You need support. You need that guidebook, and a guide who has gone before you, who has helped hundreds of other women go before you. You need someone who can help you avoid the painful mistakes that can come with stopping the pill and other forms of birth control.
You don’t need to do this alone.

"My doctor says I have to be on birth control."
There is no "have to." This should be a personal choice once you have all of the tools and resources available to you. That is what I want to empower you with.
Many regular doctors don't know how to help you heal and balance your hormones without birth control, but there are so many other options for you!
However, if staying on birth control is the best option, this course allows you to "Do Birth Control Better" even if you choose to stay on it!
"What if my pre-birth control symptoms come back?"
That is always a possibility. This program doesn't promise a cure all for every woman. However, your best bet of NOT having your symptoms return is to take the steps I outline in my program.
I also include symptom-specific protocols to prevent and support any post-birth control symptoms such as:
Painful or heavy periods
PMS or mood issues
Irregular or absent cycles

How much does it cost?
How is the course delivered?

What BUWBC women are saying!
"I truly cannot thank Dr. Gordon enough for her Breaking Up With Birth Control Course! It has been life-changing! I broke up with birth control on my own prior to finding this course and my body was having a hard time adjusting. After starting this course, I realized the impact birth control had on my entire body, not just my hormones. I started following Dr. Gordon’s courses and guides to becoming my best self. I have made many health and lifestyle changes since taking the course. My body is finally feeling better and my hormones are balancing out. This course had so many modules on things I have never learned about my health and my body so it was an amazing learning experience for me! Thank you for changing my life for the better, Dr. Gordon!"
"When I signed up for the Breaking Up With Birth Control program I was very excited. Little did I know my eyes would be opened to information I could use to improve my health as I was planning to come off birth control and prepare for pre-conception. My biggest take away from this course was learning about my cycle. I now have a better understanding of myself as a woman. It is so incredibly empowering to understand how our bodies work throughout our cycle and what I can do to optimize my health!"
"Words cannot express how thankful I am to have come across Dr. Leah Gordon and this course. I haven’t been on birth control in years, however, did want to know more about how my body worked and to prepare for kids. My biggest takeaways… too many. However, my favorites would be that I now truly understand how the feminine cycle works and how much food and outside factors can impact it. I am more in tune with my rhythm and feel my period is not as painful anymore. I am eternally grateful for all the work Dr. Leah has placed into this program and feel honored to have been in the first group. Every woman should do this course!!"
with Breaking Up With Birth Control™
Before this Breaking Up with Birth Control Course, I had been on a hormonal IUD for over five years after it was prescribed to me in high school.
At that time, my monthly cycles had gone from naturally painless to absolutely debilitating within a few short months. I did not understand my cycle, what the root causes could be, or that there were other options to prevent or treat the symptoms without hormonal birth control.
After that, it was something I lived with because I thought I needed it. In the years that followed, I became more curious about what the root cause was, but my doctors never could give me an explanation or tell me anything other than I needed the IUD to keep my periods normal, which is super funny to me now, by the way, because through this course I learned that there was nothing normal about my cycle while on hormonal birth control.
This course far exceeded my expectations.
I expected a surface level overview of the cycle and a couple action steps.
Instead, I found it to be a great explanation of the science not only behind our monthly hormonal cycles but also our microbiome and other aspects of our biology.
We learned why we should do what Dr. Leah recommends, which helps making significant lifestyle changes more desirable and honestly something to look forward to because you know the positive affects it'll have on your body.
Also, for those seeking to still avoid pregnancy after birth control (or learn when your ovulation is for conception), Dr. Leah does a deep dive on the fertility awareness method, FAM, which you can use instead of hormonal (or other) birth control.
I walked away from this course knowing how to optimize my lifestyle to complement my hormones instead of fighting them.
I've changed what I eat regularly, consciously support my detox pathways, choose supplements, like herbs, to support my body, pay attention to my stress levels and address them, and have a wonderful resource to reference for when my stage of life changes or to help me troubleshoot any future hiccups.
As of today, I can happily report that I've taken the leap to get off of hormonal birth control and have never felt better.
I'm very grateful to Dr. Leah for this course, and I wish I had taken it five years ago.

I started taking hormonal birth control during a time of many life changes and variables. This is why I didn't originally suspect that that little pink pill was a big contributor to my digestive issues, new-onset mood issues and depression, and zero libido. I went from a vibrant, energetic, happy, and sensual woman to an empty shell of myself. I felt broken and didn't know why.
No one told me birth control could be to blame, and I didn't make the connection until years later when I finally broke up with birth control.
I wish I had known back then.
I wish I had known that the pill was to blame for so many of my issues.
I wish I had had a guide to help me navigate birth control, my hormones, libido, and experiences as a woman.
And I wish I had stopped it sooner.
I vowed to never let any other woman feel alone or confused in her birth control journey like I did, and if she felt ready to break up with it, I wanted to create a resource just for her.
This is why Breaking Up With Birth Control™ was born.
I'm so happy you are here, and I look forward to seeing you inside the program!
