Does Your Birth Control Method Let You Ovulate? A Visual Guide.

For some women, it’s important that their birth control method does not suppress ovulation. The natural hormone process that comes with ovulation has all kinds of benefits, affecting everything from your mood to your skin to your long term bone and heart health.

In evaluating various contraceptive methods, it’s not always straightforward which ones suppress your natural hormone cycle and which ones allow ovulation. So we’ve created a handy cheat sheet to help you understand if your birth control method prevents you from ovulating.

You’ll see that for some birth control methods, the answer is “sometimes.” We’ll publish a follow up post to explain why, but in the meantime, just know that for the Mirena IUD, it suppresses ovulation for most women in the first year of use, but does not suppress ovulation for most women in subsequent years.

Jade & Tanner Got Pregnant with Ava!

Thank you everyone for all the support and for sharing your stories since we announced our pregnancy on Wednesday! We are so excited! For those of you who have been following us for a while, you may have seen our past post back in November about using the @avawomen bracelet to help us get pregnant faster. We got pregnant really soon after we started using Ava! I wore the bracelet every night while sleeping and Ava told us which five days were the best days to try for a baby each month. It took so much stress out of the process and was so easy to use. Since so many of you have kindly opened your hearts to me and have shared your stories about trying to get pregnant, I wanted to share what worked for us. Also, I've partnered with Ava to get you all a $20 off coupon code: JANNERBABY I'll be using Ava for all our future pregnancies and cycle tracking between babies. Thank you, Ava.
