Dancing with the Stars pro Sharna Burgess recently debuted her romance with actor Brian Austin Green.
And on Wednesday, the 35-year-old sent her Instagram followers into a frenzy when she shared a sponsored post which at first glance looked like a pregnancy announcement.
In the photo, the makeup-free dancer sat in her bed as she looked down at what appeared to be a pregnancy test.

But in her lengthy caption, the Australian TV star explained how she’d struggled with being on hormonal birth control for years.
‘I tried the pill, but I experienced mood swings, weight gain, periods that were nearly knocking me out with fatigue and pain,’ she wrote, adding that she’d recently started using a birth control app as an alternative.
She then offered her fans a discount code and revealed the product also came with a free thermometer, which is likely what she was holding in the photo.
