The Secret Medicine: Herbs for Contraception
This workshop explores contraceptive herbs. Contraception is an essential element of a woman’s reproductive health. Women are told that herbs are ineffective contraception and even dangerous. But are they? Together we will journey back in time, listening for the voices of women who once used herbs for contraception to try to unearth their forgotten wisdom. We will explore issues of safety when it comes to using plants for contraception, the phytoconstituents that offer contraceptive medicine and how these plants interact with a human’s who have a uterus. During the workshop we will also uncover some of the myths surrounding the pharmaceutical contraception.
