Natural MD Radio: Why Condoms Are a Women’s Issue

Let’s face it ladies, we’ve come a really long way.

Or have we? 

  • Only 1 in 4 men puts on a condom for a one nighter.
  • Only 1 in 5 of single ladies is insisting on condom use.
  • 1 in 4 women gets an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) in her first year of college.
  • And then the sad fact is that the condoms, lubes, tampons, and other products we’re putting into our vaginas are loaded with toxic chemicals.

It’s time for a change for our own health, and if you have daughters, you’ll want them to know about this, too. My guest on Natural MD Radio, Meika Hollender, is all about making change in women’s health and I’m really excited to have her on the show. Meika is the co-founder of one of the most innovative women’s health companies out there – Sustain Natural – and she’s an advocate for ending the stigmas surrounding us taking control of our health.

Listen today for a new way of thinking about your body and your health.

(Note this is an episode you might not want the little people in your life listening to. But a  great one to listen to with your teen daughters after you’ve had a listen yourself.)

“Our mission is to create a world where women feel empowered taking control of their sexual health.” @sustain
