Notes From The Salon: Using Herbs to Control Fertility

For time untold women have used herbal medicine to assist them in controlling their fertility. Herbs have been used by women seeking to become pregnant, to end unintended pregnancies, and act as birth control.  

The presenters at our March 20th Salon on Using Herbs to Control Fertility were Cynthia Belew, a certified nurse-midwife and herbalist, and Beth Rees, an herbalist and doula. 

Below are tidbits of words and images from the event...

 

  • Having lots of cramps? Magnesium, B Complex, Fish Oil, Zinc, and Vitamin D can help!  
  • Want to delay PMS? Herbal teas including ginger, strong chamomile, fennel seed, and lemon balm can help.   
  • Did you know Evening Primrose Oil can help soften the cervix?
  • Cottonroot blocks implantation and action of progesterone; it's used for missed/incomplete abortion, retained pregnancy contents, and to induce labor.

 

 

Can you smell the herbs? Which have you used?
