MicheleC Posted June 29, 2012 Share Posted June 29, 2012 I was diagnosed with PCOS in my 20's but even before that when I was 14 I was put on hormonal birth control due to irregular heavy periods. I also have struggled with being overweight and insulin resistant. I know that just doing the Whole 30 and eating real actual food will help with a lot of this but I was wondering if there is any tweaks for those of us who are dealing with many years of being on hormonal birth control and being insulin resistant for many years. I am currently using a Mirena IUD and stopped taking pills but I am 36 now and had so many years of taking hormones under my belt. I have heard that birth control can affect your gut flora so I have been eating more fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi (I make myself) but are there other concerns? If anyone has dealt with these issues please feel free to offer your stories and any advice. Thanks! Michele Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
