Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. It’s so great to hear your podcast again, Juli! I think it’s awesome that there are influencers like you speaking out on such an important topic. Let’s just say that birth control pills fucked me up terribly…I went off them at 27 to try and get pregnant and NEVER got my period back! I saw multiple doctors/specialists, and they basically couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I went back on the pill several years ago because my GYN said it would help my hormones somehow (??) I’m 41 now and almost feel like it’s a lost cause at this point. I wish I had information like this 15 years ago.

    It’s refreshing to hear you talk about “personal” matters, like birth control, parenthood, side effects of birth control, etc. These topics often make people feel embarrassed, or ashamed, or uncomfortable. Knowledge is power, and learning from peers is a great way to educate yourself and feel more empowered.

    On a side note….I love true crime podcasts as much as you, but right now, I am binging a podcast called The Dream. It is all about MLM’s like Herbalife, Amway, Lularoe, Mary Kay, and how they are pyramid schemes that entrap so many people who are so desperate to improve their lives. It is so well done, so interesting, and so informative. I highly recommend it! 🙂

    1. thanks for the love, bethany! i completely agree with you, it just feels nice to hear your peers talking about what they are going through. it just feels like you’re listening to a friend, which is often the kind of podcasts i listen to nowadays.

      but at the same time, i just downloaded Dream and i LOVE it so far!! thank you so much for the recommendation!

  2. Hi Julie! Will you say what supplement you’re taking to help balance hormones (without necessarily recommending it) so we could look into it? Thanks!

  3. I cant wait to research this temperature method more. I have never used oral birth control or an IUD but my bf and I use the pull out method and avoid sex when I am ovulating. It has worked for us for a few years now but this would be a way to be more certain. I have wanted to get my tubes tied but the doctors I have seen will not do it for someone my age. I am 30 and know that I do not want children and am fine paying out of pocket without insurance. Just sucks that I can’t have it done.

  4. Hi Juli,

    Thank you so much for this, I am planning to get off birth control and trying to gather all the information prior to doing so!

    Do you have any recommendations on brands for the supplements that Dr. Brighten mentions?

    Thanks!

  5. What was the name of the doctors website you referenced a few times on this podcast? Can you give a link to her site?
    Thanks!

  6. Hi! So sorry I missed the chance to submit my question on IG stories when you asked but I would love to know your husbands perspective on getting off BC? My husband and I are also of the mindset that if it happens, it wouldn’t be the end of the world but we also don’t want a baby riiiight now. I want to take my IUD out, just kind over having this little device in me pumping hormones into me but he is like not convinced. So anyway, TMI but just curious if you had to kinda talk your husband into it (for lack of a better phrase) or any tips on having the convo?! Thanks, you’re the best and so pumped you’re recording podcasts again!

    1. that’s kind of hard to answer just because he doesn’t really have a choice in the matter. whenever i do something to or for my body, i never run it by him. it’s my body, my choice. i didn’t even talk to him about it, i just mentioned that i stopped taking my birth control, explained why, and talked about making sure we kept that in mind when things got frisky. sure i explained to him why i didn’t want to be on BC anymore so he understood why i got off of it and why i was irritable, but he’s always super supportive of anything i do, especially after explaining what i know now know about how BC hormones f*ck up our bodies. the last thing he wants me to do is take something that’s hurting my body, ya know? sorry if that doesn’t help much!
