This week on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Jolene Brighten, who also appeared in episode #112, Post Birth Control Syndrome. Dr. Brighten is back to talk about burning hormonal topics including night sweats, low progesterone and testosterone, hair loss and lots about libido.  We also fielded questions from my teenage daughter, asking about advice for teens tracking menstrual cycles, how to talk to the doc about alternatives to birth control for hormonal support, and dealing with shade online from uneducated sources.


  • What training is involved to be a clinical sexologist?
  • Ebbs and flows of low libido
  • Why women are like crockpots and men are like microwaves
  • Things that affect low testosterone for women
  • How sperm count is down 50%
  • Night sweats in cycling women, hair loss and tips for transitioning to perimenopause
