    Hi family,
    I was wondering if anybody has information or could share with me how to detox off of birth control. I am on the horrendous depo provera shot, i poisoned my body and womb with that crap. I am not getting the next injection, and i want to/need to purge it out of my body.

    I had severe reactions to Depo too... excessive discharge, bleeding, difficulty losing the pregnancy weight, lost my hair, etc. :(

    I don't have any advice for you on how to detox, though. It takes several months for it to completely leave your system.

    I took baths with freshly grated ginger in the water..ginger induces perspiration..went to the sauna, drank plenty of water..ate okra which also helps detox..and incorporated more yoga..its starting to leave my body already..

    You can do fasts two days out of each week for a month...summer months are the bests months to fast and/or detox the system.

    Watermelon is excellent for detox along with herbal teas, fresh juices. If you google DETOX you will get a lot of helpful information too.

    It took a full 9 months for me to have a period after stopping the depo provera shot ( and I only had ONE shot)- just be aware it may take a while. I ate a very clean diet (fruits and veggies) for 4 months straight to rid my body of toxins after that shot.

    I don't trust birth control. I don't like the idea of my time of the month being artificially regulated.
