In today’s episode, I’m joined by Dr. Jolene Brighten, a prominent leader in women's medicine and the emerging science of post-birth control syndrome. We take a deep dive into the menstrual cycle, women’s health, the effects of birth control - and how to best support your system as you go through time.
Since every system in your body is impacted by your hormones, it’s so important to understand how they work - as well as what you might be feeling when they aren't working optimally - so you can take action to care for yourself, and not be lost in the darkness of misunderstanding and fear about the inner workings of your own body.
My goal in this episode is to empower you as a woman with the knowledge you need to make the best choices for yourself, and the know-how to advocate for your health to the care providers you work with.
