    081: Can the COVID-19 vaccine affect my period?

    081: Can the COVID-19 vaccine affect my period?

    As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues, more women report experiencing a change in their menstrual cycle after receiving their shot. While there's still research being done, cycle changes are very common and they can be attributed to stress, diet or other changes, so it's hard to link them to the vaccine. That said, many women have taken to social media to talk about how they’re experiencing heavier-than-normal periods and other menstrual changes after getting vaccinated. To better understand these abnormalities, Dr. Oakley will explain, and Holly shares her menstruation experience following her vaccine in this episode.

    079: Are seasonal allergies making you miserable?

    079: Are seasonal allergies making you miserable?

    Breathing allergies affect your daily life, but early detection can limit the impact and help you breathe easy. Learning the signs and symptoms of an allergy to mold, grass, dust, animal dander, pollen or other airborne irritants help you recognize when to call an experienced pulmonary doctor for testing and treatment. The symptoms of asthma and breathing allergies often overlap, so you might need testing to determine the exact source of your breathing difficulties. Allergens are also a common trigger for asthma episodes. In fact, allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma, and most people with asthma have at least one breathing allergy as well. Listen as our guest Dr. Latonya Brown, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Specialist at St. Elizabeth, sits down with Dr. Oakley and Holly to discuss allergic responses and what you can do about them.

    078: Summer sweat, water and sand can irritate your lady parts

    078: Summer sweat, water and sand can irritate your lady parts

    Summer is the time for sand, sea and sweat, and because of that, your vagina needs extra care during these hot months. Our bodies, and in this case, our vaginas, do a great job of balancing themselves out; however, when you're lounging in a wet swimsuit, that balance can go out of whack. Chemicals from a pool and bacteria from the ocean and lakes get absorbed into your swimsuit's fabric. This creates a damp, warm place for budding germs to turn into a urinary tract infection (UTI), a bacterial overgrowth in the vagina known as bacterial vaginosis, or a yeast infection. Dr. Oakley will dive into how summer can take a toll on your lady parts and share the best summer tips for your lady bits. All of these infections are treatable, but best of all, easily preventable.

Episode 056

The description noted the discussion would center around decrease desire for intimacy. I heard nothing to address this issue. They kept laughing about the subject rather than focus on this subject. I found this most unhelpful.
