Understanding Your Period with The Period Lady, Nicole Jardim
April 15, 2021
Hosted by Robin LaCross
Where can you start when it comes to figuring out period problems? Lots of us grew up believing that birth control pills are the silver bullet to fix your period. Unfortunately, by preventing ovulation, hormonal birth control only masks the underlying issue, potentially delaying the diagnosis of serious conditions. On top of that, whether you want to get pregnant or not, consistent ovulation is important for hormone production, which is critical for so many areas of our health from cognitive function to heart health, sleep regulation, and more. The period fixer, Nicole Jardim, wants us to understand that our body speaks to us through our symptoms and that’s why it’s important for us to dig deeper. We talk about why parents need to empower teenagers to understand their menstrual cycles and fertility, what a healthy period looks like, the long-term health effects of hormonal birth control, ovulation as a vital bodily function, and why tracking your cycle is important for all menstruators.
