Birth control pills, which are a form of hormone replacement therapy (we just don’t call it that because it doesn’t sound good), will alter your natural hormonal output. Many women deplete a lot of sulfur from their body as the hormones use the sulfur within the body for detoxification through the liver. Magnesium, vitamin B6 and folic acid deficiencies are also very common. All these nutrients are necessary for proper joint health making a female much more susceptible to joint problems and tendonitis. Taking BCP to normalize an abnormal cycle or to resolve or lessen the problems associated with PMS is not the answer. Finding out the reason to those issues is much more health fulfilling.
