102. The Hormone You Don't Know You Need with Dr. Rachel Rubin

If you're a woman in perimenopause/menopause and you have a vagina, listen up, because this episode is going to blow you away! 

My guest this week, Dr. Rachel Rubin, is a Urologist and a Sexual Medicine Specialist, and I was so excited to talk with her because the work that she does, both in clinic and on social media, has dramatically helped countless women live with greater comfort, confidence, and pleasure!

Dr. Rubin joined me on this episode to talk about the life-changing benefits of using vaginal estrogen for women in menopause and beyond. She likes to say that she deals in issues of libido, arousal, orgasm, and pain, and fortunately for everybody, vaginal estrogen can help with issues surrounding all of these topics. Without revealing too much, it is well documented to improve sex life, prevent urinary tract infections, and decrease vaginal pain, leading to a higher quality of life. 

So you might be asking yourself, "why haven't I heard of this before?"

Unfortunately, despite literature supporting the local use of vaginal estrogen having been around for decades, it hasn't been widely adopted by the medical community. This is where Dr. Rubin steps in **cue heroic music**.

Dr. Rubin has made it her mission to spread this knowledge, and mind you, credible, up-to-date knowledge- to as many people as possible. She does so by shouting from the rooftops via her social media pages, running her D.C.-based practice, and training the next generation of Sexual Medicine physicians. What I love about her is that she is relentlessly herself and she won't stop at anything to share this information!
