Can I Seed Cycle while taking birth control?


The short answer is yes. However, because the hormonal birth control prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation, seed cycling will not help you balance your hormones while on birth control. Seed cycling can still support its effects and provide benefits for the numerous systems in the body. It is also a great tool to impement when coming off birth control to help your body regulate its cycles and naturally support hormone production.




What if my period is irregular or missing?


Start by following cycles of the moon as a guide -- this is known as Lunaconception or BioRhythmic Lunar Charting. Because our bodies naturally want to sync with the phases of the moon (i.e. bleeding on the new moon, ovulation on the full moon or vice versa), use this as a guide if you struggle with regularity or amenorrhea (when menstruation is absent during reproductive years). Days 1-14 (new moon to full moon) = Follicular Blend (pumpkin seeds and flax seeds). Days 15-28 (full moon to new moon) = Luteal Blend (sunflower seeds and sesame seeds).




Can I seed cycle if I'm pregnant?


Though seeds in your diet can still be highly supportive, please consult with your healthcare practitioner before consuming.




How long before I see results?


It can take at least three months of daily use to start noticing benefits. We can honor our bodies by giving them time to adjust to new practices. To help you identify the shifts and changes from seed cycling, track your cycle and symptoms and/or keep a journal.
