Laura Wershler is a sexual and reproductive health advocate, writer, and speaker with thirty years of experience working and volunteering for pro-choice organizations in Canada. For the last decade, she has focused on menstrual cycle advocacy, supported by her membership and volunteer work with the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research. Laura is a fierce advocate for body literacy – in fact, she coined the term – and supporter of all menstruators enjoying regular ovulatory cycles to support their overall health.
In this episode, Laura and I talk about the protective power of our ovulatory cycles, how the misinformation around menstrual suppression makes it difficult for menstruators to make informed decisions, the big problem with the “pill for every female ill” mindset, why she feels positive about the direction menstrual cycle awareness is taking, and so much more. This episode is fire, enjoy!
