Just What the Doctor Ordered

This podcast is just what the doctor ordered. Very informative and helpful. Dr. Howell is answering many questions I have had over the years, but didn't know who to ask or how to get help. I've learned so much. This episode was exactly what I needed.

Releasing Shame

I am grateful that Kelly Bronner’s Black Girl Burnout podcast introduced me to this show. For months, I’d been dealing with incontinence and have been off and on throughout my childhood. I’ve felt so much shame regarding my vagina and just ignored or avoided any symptoms or discomfort, that is until I listened to this podcast. After listening, I felt empowered to schedule a gyno visit to take my vaginal health into my own hands.
