Show notes:

In episode 02, our Flow team tackles the myriad of abnormal occurrences that may accompany menstruation.

We get to speak with Dr. Shaveta Malik, OBGYN about all that and more - PLUS we talk about the stigma of period shame, first periods, and resources to learn about the history of disparities in healthcare.

Program Notes:

Menstruators can experience a variety of abnormalities related to their reproductive health. Jessica & Christie talk about menorrhagia (aka heavy prolonged periods), cysts, clotting - and the horror thriller CARRIE. Time for some shame-defying straight talk about extreme periods!
