Holly Grigg Spall joins us today as we are digging into the impact of hormonal birth control on fertility.
Holly is the author of the bestselling book Sweetening the Pill: Or How We Got Hooked On Hormonal Birth Control. She is consulting producer on a documentary inspired by her book, directed by Abby Epstein and executive produced by Ricki Lake, which is currently in production and due for release in 2018.
Holly's Op-Ed on the pill and mental health side effects for the Guardian was ranked as the most-read comment piece of 2016. The story went viral, became a Twitter Moment, and as a result she was featured by the Washington Post and interviewed for NPR and CBC. Vice named her "the poster girl for a movement of women abandoning the pill in favor of contraceptives that don't wreak havoc on their body and mind."
Holly's work has featured in both American and British Vogue; she has collaborated on an article about the pro-period revolution with Alanis Morissette, and produced a piece on male birth control options with Mayim Bialik. Holly was a speaker at Cycles+Sex, in NYC and LA, and leads workshops on going off hormonal birth control. She is also a brand ambassador for the Daysy fertility tracker.
