Thank you for your reply on the milk/juice topic. My children were all breast-fed, but moved to cow-based milk afterward and still drink it today. Maybe I should start cutting down.
I had another question. I have read articles by many holistic providers about the problems with the Birth Control Pill and other artificial hormones. I was on it many years myself and wonder if it contributed to my irregular cycles for years afterwards. Anyway, one article I read suggested the IUD as a better and healthier option of birth control. I do not know which would be better... IUD or some sort of female permanent sterilization. I cannot go by the more natural timing method because I have irregular cycles and ovulation usually falls later and not on the same day each time. What do you usually recommend for women wanting birth control?
