EPISODE 14: THE MENOPAUSE SHOW!!! -- WITH DR. SHERRY
All those hilarious memes about hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, and that wacky brain fog.
But, I promise you, menopause is no joke.
It’s time we all stop being polite, and start getting real about menopause.
On this episode, I have a completely uncensored and candid talk with highly-respected OB/GYN to the stars, and self-proclaimed “vagina whisperer” Dr. Sherry A. Ross.
We talk about pain during sex, what causes it and what you can do to prevent it so you can enjoy sex life again. We talk about vaginal dryness and remedies that work. We talk about the importance of a good vibrator. How to advocate for yourself when you’re at the doctor’s office. We even discuss if “squirting” is a real thing? Hint: It is.
Dr. Sherry and I go there!
