#417: Running and Periods!

Sarah and Molly, the Queen of TMI, have a bloody (had to do it!) good conversation about periods with Dr. Jennifer Hallowell, a Massachusetts-based OB/GYN, mom of two, and self-described “serial half-marathoner.” In answering questions culled from Facebook, the good doctor details:

how to get rid of having periods + clever ways to reduce flow;

methods to manage PMS symptoms;

non-tampon/pad options (so many!), including an online comparison chart;

menopause misconceptions; and,

how to not feel “like a bloated hippo running in quicksand” right around your period.

After random, laughter-filled chitchat, the guest jumps on at 10:13.
