Become Your Own Contraception and Fertility Expert

Jane Bennett is a powerhouse in the menstrual education world. Having been working to support women and children with understanding their fertility and contraception naturally for many decades, she has empowered multiple generations to take back their bodies, and be well educated and informed to make informed choices for both understanding and supporting fertility, and contraception that doesn’t need to involve taking hormonal birth control.
I loved meeting Jane for the first time – its such a perk of doing this podcast, I get to have conversations with people I admire, respect and have learned from such as Jane. We spoke about Jane’s mission and journey to creating her legacy that she’s built, what the different types of contraception are and how they work, why you might want to consider not taking hormonal birth control, how to come off birth control and what that might be like, and how we can share information with teens so they can make informed choices for themselves.

Intuition: When to Say No and Love Yourself First

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.

how to set embodied intentions for the new year with Charlotte Pointeaux- Wild Feminine Cycle Coach

How To Set Embodied Intentions For The New Year

When you want to create real change, its important that you don’t follow what you think you should be focusing on. instead, ask yourself what’s true for you. how will you know? your body will tell you.

Have you picked a word for the year yet? A New Year’s resolution? Is your year mapped out with strict timelines and a whole lotta hustle? Maybe so… But if this approach doesn’t feel quite right to you, I’d love to offer you a different way: a more feminine, embodied, feelings-based way of setting intentions for the year ahead. In this episode I’m sharing my embodied intention-setting technique which I guide all my private wild feminine coaching clients through, so you can get crystal-clear, alive, juicy and deeply inspired to call in your most luscious year yet.

What’s more, the cycle mysteries teach us that New Years Day is not the correct time to be declaring “New Year, New Me!”. Instead, there’s meant to be an in-built hibernation, restorative time to let the death of the last year complete, and the visioning and dreaming of the new year to occur before we rush in all guns blazing with our new habits.

I suggest we allow ourselves one Moon, until New Moon (22nd Jan 2023) to let our visions become clear, so we’re sure we’re choosing the right path that honours our capacity, desires, needs and energy, rather than overriding and pushing through. Let’s resist the urge to overdo it and then quit at the first hurdle, all burnt out, and instead take a cyclical, embodied approach right from the get-go.
