Is not getting your period normal? Do women have a lower sex drive than men? Should your first time hurt? It’s time to bust all of the misconceptions related to women’s health, hormones and sex with Dr. Jolene Brighten, a hormone expert, nutrition scientist, and thought leader in women’s medicine. 
Dr. Brighten is the author of Is This Normal, a non-judgmental guide to creating hormone balance, eliminating unwanted symptoms, and building the sexual desire you crave…because feeling pleasure is your birthright. 
In this episode, Krista and Dr. Brighten discuss the many myths that women have been told for generations and chat about everything from pain in the bedroom to how cyclical hormones rule your life—there is no such thing as TMI here.

Oxytocin and one night stands

Men vs. women's libido

Misconceptions about sex and hormones
