Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

This week I have another conversation about women’s health, specifically about topics or issues we don’t always think to discuss with our healthcare providers.  Dr. Kerry-Anne Perkins (Dr. P), a board-certified and dynamic Obstetrician and Gynecologist joins me for a conversation about what women need to know about urinary tract infections (UTIs), the seven supplements women should take for reproductive health, and tips for having a healthy vagina.  

Dr. Perkins has extensive expertise in global maternal health needs, problems of the female reproductive tract, contraceptive care, and minimally invasive surgery. She also has a burning passion and commitment to fitness and a holistic approach to a healthy mind, body, and spirit. 

Some of the topics we explore include:

  • UTIs: how and why women get them, as well as, how can we prevent getting them (3:52)
  • The symptoms of PCOS or Uterine Fibroids (10:15)
  • Five signs of fertility or that you are in your fertile window (21:26)
  • Supplements and nutrients for better health, aging bodies, as well as a healthy reproductive system. Necessary supplements Dr. P suggests include: B-complex, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Calcium, Iron, and Folic Acid (28:24)
  • Dr. P’s tips for having a ‘healthy vagina’ (38:38)
