How C*m

Dec 14, 2020

We're talking hormones and women's healthcare with a prominent leader in women's medicine and author of 'Beyond The Pill,' Dr Jolene Brighten.

Dr Brighten tells us how she combines naturopathic and conventional medicine to treat various hormonal imbalances and runs us through different options of birth control for women depending on how their bodies respond.  She tells us about PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome), which can occur after coming off of birth control and how she and other women have been misdiagnosed with it.

Finally, Dr Brighten tells us about navigating health issues for the trans community, a horrifying TikTok trend that sheds light on how the US healthcare system is failing women and sexual abuse survivors, and how to better advocate for yourself in medical situations.
