Just put that despair & worry in the trash can - the human body's capacity to heal itself is magnificent...and hormonal issues such as you're experiencing due to birth control pills is one that uncountable women have healed from using natural & herbal methods & protocols.
I'm sorry that someone indicated "Herbs is not going to solve the problem." I'm sure that seemed very discouraging and definite to you...but it's neither :)
There are MANY great herbal hormone balancers on the market, and while your issues MAY take a bit more effort than just popping a few supplements or herbal tonics (such as bowel cleansing & liver flushing), the herbal preparations may provide either a lessing of symptoms (or a total cure) while you're researching the rest.
I've never used it myself, but Dr. Schulze

While running my clinic I have seen many woman who became incapable of normal functioning, both physically and emotionally, because of menopause, P.M.S. and hormonal imbalance. This tonic has been a lifesaver for them. Besides the obvious health benefits, many saved their marriages, their families, their careers and their sanity by using these formulae.
Over 1 billion woman use one or more of the herbs in these formulae. It gives women that sense of well-being and control. It does so by increasing the communication between the endocrine organs in the brain and the ovaries. It allows a woman the ability to age slowly and naturally and make comfortable transitions from puberty through menopause and beyond.
Today most estrogen is derived from torturing pregnant horses. Their urine is drained from their bladder via a catheter 24 hours a day. Even the manufacturers of estrogen use estrogen run a 4 to 14 times greater risk of developing uterine and breast cancers, not to mention liver disease and numerous other illnesses.
I have worked with hundreds of women in my clinic over the years to get them off of hormones. They were able to make this transition. This weaning off is best done gradually over a period of 30 to 60 days.
Dosage for menopause:
Start with 1 dropperful (35 drops) 3 times daily for at least one week. If this is not enough and symptoms still persist, increase to 1 dropperful 4 times daily. If needed you can increase to 6 dropperfuls daily, but spread them out.
If your symptoms intensify during a particular time of the day or evening, use more of the tonic during that time. For example, for nighttime sweats, take 2 to 3 dropperfuls before bedtime to offset this situation.
Dosage for PMS:
For a regular 28 day cycle on the 18th day after the start of your last period, take 1 dropperful (35 drops). On the 19th day take 1 dropperful in the morning and 1 in the evening. On the 20th day through the start of your next period take 1 dropperful 3 times daily. This dosage can be increased to 2 dropperfuls 3 times daily with an occasional dosage of up to 4 dropperfuls during extreme symptoms. Discontinue the formula once your period begins unless you have extreme menstrual problems.
Dosage for Menstrual Irregularity:
If you have had long-term menstrual irregularity, start by taking 1 dropperful 3 times daily for 1 to 2 months. This should balance your hormones and regulate your periods.
If it is for menstrual problems during your period, take 1 to 3 dropperfuls, 3 times daily as needed.
Dosage For Infertility:
Start with 1 dropperful 3 times daily for a month. The next month you can increase to 2 dropperfuls 3 times daily. Continue with the formula. Stop if you become pregnant.
As with most situations, but especially with infertility, you must do ALL of The Foundational Programs to get the best results.
