    PCOS, Nutrition and Metabolic Disease w/ Tim O'Dowd

    PCOS, Nutrition and Metabolic Disease w/ Tim O'Dowd

    On today’s episode Izzy and I are chatting about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS. PCOS is the most common health condition that affects between 8-13% of women of reproductive age.

    Now today’s conversation isn’t going to focus on the pathology of PCOS. Instead we are joined by Obstetrician & Gynaecologist and Fertility Specialist, Dr Tim O’Dowd. Tim is passionate about spreading awareness on the effect of diet on reproductive health, especially for people with PCOS.

    Embarrassing period stories w/ Ophelia, Isobel and Eloise

    Embarrassing period stories w/ Ophelia, Isobel and Eloise

    We thought we would kick off this season with some laughs. Today we are chatting about embarrassing period stories. I don’t think I’ve come across anyone who hasn’t had an embarrassing moment at some point since having their period. We asked you guys to send in your embarrassing period stories on instagram and are also going to react to some stories we recorded at our podcast launch last year.

    When people hear about TABOO’s mission to eradicate period poverty, they are often surprised when we tell them that doesn’t just mean period poverty occurring overseas - that we have a whole program which donates period products to people right here in Australia who can’t afford it. Period poverty is a reality for many in our country, and it’s happening right on our doorstep.
