I think it is safe to say that the majority of women in the United States are on some form of birth control. I was told to start taking the birth control pill when I was 18 years old for acne. This week on my podcast, WITH WHIT, I had an incredible conversation with Sarah E. Hill, PhD all about the birth control pill and the effects it has on women’s brains and hormones.
As many of you know, I had a miscarriage in July. So many amazing people reached out on Instagram to support me and share their stories. I’m so grateful that social media can be a tool to unite people during trying times. One of the brave people who got in touch with me is a psychologist, Dr. Sunita Osborn. She joined me on my podcast, WITH WHIT, this week and we shared an incredible conversation. Below are words from Dr. Osborn about the episode and her new book, The Miscarriage Map: What to Expect When You Are No Longer Expecting.
This week on WITH WHIT, I had such an amazing guest, Cindy Eckert! Cindy has had a distinguished 24-year career in healthcare, in only the last 10 she has started and sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals, which redefined long acting testosterone treatment for men then Sprout Pharmaceuticals which broke through with the first ever FDA-approved drug for low sexual desire in women — dubbed “female Viagra” by the media.
Ever since I can remember I have been getting migraines. They started when I was young and have continued to get increasingly worse as I have gotten older. The increase of frequency can be attributed to the fact that as you get older, there are more stressful things entering your life – but it may also just be something I am prone to more than others. I wish there was a known reason behind why I get them so much, but since there isn’t, all I can do is try the things I have learned that have proven to help me each time one arises.
I want to start this off by thanking from the bottom of my heart! Over the weekend, I experienced anxiety in relation to the anticipation of this week. I get this a lot. I anticipate things too much instead of living in the moment.
