Episode 155: Pelvic Pain Solutions for Women
with Dr. Jessica Drummond
Is it normal to have pain with your menstrual cycle? Or pain with sex? These types of pain are very common, normalized in our cultural conversations (if they’re talked about at all). But they are certainly not required, nor should we just accept them as part of what it means to have a female body. Join me to break the silence, dispel myths, address common causes and treatment options for pelvic pain with Dr. Jessica Drummond.
On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:
- endometriosis, vulvodynia and what we can do about them
- how the awareness of trauma might actually be doing women a disservice when it comes to a pelvic pain diagnosis
- how Chinese Medicine can help
- building a holistic-minded treatment team for pelvic pain
