Everything They Forgot To Tell You About Women's Health with Nat Kringoudis (EP#25)

Today Mason and Dr. Nat Kringoudis discuss the missing link in reproductive health - the fact that our youngsters are not being appropriately educated in this field. Dr. Nat is extremely passionate about empowering the young and educating our children, rather than letting them find their way in the big, bad online world. They explore the skills that a care giver can incorporate into their repertoire to hold space for these conversations around fertility, reproductive health, sex and everything in between. Dr. Nat raises the point that, from a young age, we are told narratives around most sexual, reproductive and gender-specific body functions. But why? For example, why do we tell our youngsters that babies are delivered by a stork? Tune in to today's episode to explore how we can begin to redefine the sexual education of our teens, for healthier generations to come. 

 

You will hear about:

  • How normalising sexual / reproductive facts with kid's is a really proactive preventative measure to educate the future generations
  • 30% of teens are googling reproductive health; let's shift their first experience from the online forum, to a face to face age-appropriate conversation
  • The stress around infertility tends to overtake any structural or physiological fertility issues
  • Synthetic hormonal birth control (like the pill) mask any underlying symptoms
  • Kids observe and absorb; we need to make sure we are educated and empowered to lead by example
  • If you suffer from PCOS, intermittent fasting can be a game changer
  • The biggest hormonal issues stem from stress
  • Try aligning to the feeling you want, rather than the goal
  • How synthetic birth control may encourage infertility
  • STD's can have devastating long-term fertility effects
  • Hormonal issues are normal until around age 18 for females
  • How condoms and barrier methods should be non-negotiable for teens
