On this episode of Well, Actually, Margo talks with Lisa Henrickson-Jack of the Fertility Friday podcast! Fertility Awareness was the way that Margo became interested in women’s health and bodily autonomy, and has the potential to capture the imagination and excitement of a whole new generation of powerful women.
Listen in as she and Lisa talk about
– the politics of fertility awareness
– the consequences of altering women’s hormonal cycle with the use of oral contraceptives
– Lisa’s awesome new book The Fifth Vital Sign
– and why strippers make more money when they are ovulating.
Lisa Hendrickson-Jack is a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner who teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health. In her new book The Fifth Vital Sign, Lisa debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children by recognizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimization. She hosts the Fertility Friday Podcast, a weekly radio show devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health.
