Tips for a Healthy (and Happy) Vagina
I’ve been talking a lot about vaginas this week. And orgasms.
So, let’s keep it rolling!
When I got an IUD a few years back, because of a foreign object in my body and systemic inflammation, I began getting chronic yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. My OBGYN, at the time, (YES, I FIRED MY VAGINA DOCTOR) just kept giving me antibiotics over and over. I knew this couldn’t possibly be healthy. On top of that, if you read my blog on birth control, you know that I am very passionate about the side effects of IUDs, shots and oral contraceptives.
(By the way, if you want a great book to help you get off the pill, the AMAZING Dr. Jolene Brighten, just released Beyond The Pill to help your body + hormones get back on track and heal!)
So, as this was happening, it got me to thinking… what else is happening down there that I am just not aware of? This is when I went down the rabbit hole and found clean tampons. Let’s keep this simple: if you’re not using organic cotton tampons, you are likely putting a ton of chemicals including bleach and perfume up in the MOST absorbent part of your body.
So now that I have terrified you, I have answers to your questions! Head over to The Platform Podcast and listen to my interview with the co- founder of Sustain, Meika Hollender.
In this episode, we talk through:
the importance of organic tampons, clean lube and non-toxic condoms
why she created the new period cup
why we all deserve orgasms (just WAIT til you hear what she is proposing on V day!)
the stigmas around sex + women purchasing condoms
