What is the point of having a period when you can’t or don’t intend to have children?
In this episode, Jo and her guest host go deep and get super personal all about periods. They speak to members of the community to find out what periods mean to them. From 67-year-old guest Heather on who teaches all about “rag suspender belts” to 34-year-old Skye, who had to have a hysterectomy at 31, and 44 year-old Pen, with heavy periods and nine miscarriages.
Stats: What can impact periods (plenty) and the average ages we “become” women and when it all ends.
In Shit that Comes up on my feed, we have a doozy. Stay tuned.
