Feb. 16, 2022

Twitter’s resident OB/GYN, pain medicine physician, best-selling author, and the medical misinformation sleuth of the internet, Dr. Jen Gunter is back for round two with Dr. Danielle Belardo for an eye opening conversation about menopause, hormone therapy, medical conspiracy thinking, parasite cleanses, and more. Tune in as Jen and Danielle get to the bottom of women’s health pseudoscience headlines and take the snake oil salesmen and so-called experts *cough*Goop*cough* head on.    Dr. Jen Gunter is the author of The NY Times instant best sellers The Vagina Bible and The Menopause Manifesto. She is board-certified in OB/GYN in both Canada and the United States, and in pain medicine by the American Board of Pain Medicine and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Her blog, The Vajenda, is packed full of bias-free content about sex, social media, and science with a healthy dose of humor and feminism.     Myths and misconceptions discussed include:    Bio-identical hormone therapy vs. menopausal hormone therapy  Testosterone pellets, estrogen dosage, and synthetic hormones  The relationship between parasites and PMS    Thank you so much for taking the time to contribute to a generation that values fact over fiction! Be sure to rate, review, and follow on your favorite podcast app and let us know which not-so-wellness trend you’d like to hear debunked.
