The contraceptive pill stops pregnancy, within just a few days, by preventing ovulation, the process where an egg matures, leaves the ovaries, and enters the fallopian tubes for fertilization.
The synthetic progesterone in the pill (and in some cases synthetic progesterone and estrogen) also thickens the cervical mucous preventing sperm entering the fallopian tubes and changes the lining of the uterus to discourage an embryo from implanting.
Unfortunately, for some women, just stopping the contraceptive pill is not enough for these delicate hormones, essential for fertility to rebalance. In some cases, it can take years and for others, their hormones can be out of balance permanently.
As a fertility Homeopath, I have been balancing hormones for some years now and I find that the biggest cause of an imbalance in AMH levels and low ovarian reserve is previous use of the contraceptive pill or birth control.
This is backed by research.
A study conducted by the Jour et al consisted of 887 women, some who had a history of using the contraceptive pill, and some who hadn’t and also took into consideration age, BMI, smoking, and maternal age at menopause.
