Periods. The menstrual cycle. Sex. Relationships. Reproductive Health. This show explores the intersection of these topics and how they are key to achieving optimal health, stronger relationships, empowerment, and true life fulfillment.

That may sound far-fetched, but understanding the menstrual cycle--whether you have one or just care about someone who does--is a roadmap to living your best life. The reason so many of us are unhealthy, unfulfilled, and settling for less than we deserve in relationships and in life is because we’re so disconnected from our cyclical nature and the insights it has for us.

Tune back into your nature by tuning in each week for unapologetic, honest, and truthful conversations about periods, female reproductive health, relationships, and sexual empowerment. It’s everything you never learned in sex ed (and were afraid to ask!).

Periods need better PR and this is where it all begins!

    18. Ovulation: The Main Event of Your Menstrual Cycle

    18. Ovulation: The Main Event of Your Menstrual Cycle

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: your menstrual cycle is about SO MUCH MORE than your period!
    In fact, the main event of your menstrual cycle is really what happens mid-cycle, approximately 2-3 weeks before you bleed--ovulation.
    It doesn't get the props it deserves, but ovulation is an integral piece of the healthy menstrual cycle puzzle and is actually a sign of overall health in and of itself.
    In today’s episode, I’ll be sharing with you 1) why it’s so important to ensure that you’re ovulating every single cycle; 2) what regular ovulation reveals about your overall health AS WELL AS how it predicts your future health; 3) some common reasons why you may not be ovulating; and 4) how to determine if you’ve ovulated and if not, what you can do about it.

    In this episode, I am tackling five common myths about periods that just need to die already. Unfortunately, there's still SO MUCH misinformation about periods circulating out there, so I thought "It's time to set the record straight."
    And while we cannot tackle #allthemyths in one episode, these five are the ones I hear most often among people of all different ages and genders. 
    So buckle up and get ready to learn--or unlearn!--a thing or two about your period!

    15. Fertile Or Nah: Is It Safe To F**k Raw?!? [Getting To Know Your Fertile Signs]

    15. Fertile Or Nah: Is It Safe To F**k Raw?!? [Getting To Know Your Fertile Signs]

    Clutch the pearls! 
    This week's episode is all about how to track and interpret your fertile signs to know 1) when you're fertile and therefore should abstain from unprotected sex (if pregnancy prevention if your goal) and 2) when your uterus is closed is business and it's OK to f**k raw and carefree, knowing that pregnancy is impossible!
    Despite how far we've come in the realms of women's sexual liberation and reproductive health, SO MANY MYTHS persist about WHEN you can get pregnant and HOW it happens that this episode is LONG overdue!
    I hope you enjoy it, and as always, please subscribe, rate, and review! xoxo

    14. 5 Myths About Birth Control That Almost Everyone Believes (But Are Totally False!)

    14. 5 Myths About Birth Control That Almost Everyone Believes (But Are Totally False!)

    Hey, friends!
    In this episode, we're chatting birth control myths, and boy, are there A LOT!
    Hormonal birth control regulates your period (no it doesn't!)
    You get a real period when you're on the Pill (nope, you don't)
    You can get pregnant immediately after going off hormonal birth control (this is a tricky one!)
    And much more! 
    This is from an IG live I did last week, and thought it was too good not to share here! If you're not already following me on Instagram, what are you doing with your life?! Come hang out over here: @pointblankperiod_podcast and @hilaryglaus!!!
