I ask Dr. Nita Landry how to prevent yeast infections, urinary incontinence, sex before exercise, and more! Dr. Landry is a co-host on Doctor and has a great way to explain awkward topics, so you won’t feel weird asking! Or at least I didn’t – should I? Get show notes and more info at RunEatRepeat.com
We are talking about:
- Sex before the competition?
- Thoughts on the goblet period?
- How to prevent yeast infections?
- Kegels ??
- Pee in pants.
- New device INNOVO
- And more!
Today I’m talking to Dr. Nita Landry from the Doctor’s Emmy series. I ask her a ton of TMI, potentially embarrassing questions. Please note – I went to a Catholic school. I am Mexican. It is not super open to recognize your bathing suit area … but I think it is important and there is nothing wrong with our bodies – we all have one. And it is important to be informed. So I am publicly talking about some of these things in case you are interested in any of this. Please pass it on or use it to take it one step further and chat with your healthcare providers, friends, neighbors, strangers in the dog park, etc.
Heat: Last weekend, I participated in the Lexus Lace Up Half Marathon Half Marathon. Phew! It was hot and I was struggling with the stomach. But I did it.
To summarize: stripping a half marathon in Orange County
And if you want to run one of the other lace-up races … use the discount code MONICA10
There are also many other racing discount codes, including the Rock N Roll Phoenix and the Revel Race Series on my Race Discounts page. Check this !!
And I have a quick hack of training equipment on Instagram @RunEatRepeat – check it out, I swear it made my life easier, and I already ran for many years and felt that my processes were in place.
I got a few questions about specific running and nutritional needs, and RDs and running trainers are coming up soon. If you have a question for the trainer – write about it by e-mail or leave a voice message 562 888 1644 – stop halfway and ask if you will forget it or add it to the notes application.
Now let's talk about TMI.
Dr. Nita answers all my awkward questions.
Dr. Nita Landry is a certified obstetrician-gynecologist who specializes in working with young women to promote safe sexual practices, a healthy pregnancy and disease prevention. In addition to the practice of medicine, she is also a permanent co-host of the Doctor’s television show. I will add her contact information to the notes for the show so you can follow her. Her website has some great videos and clips from the show, which, in my opinion, were interesting, so if this topic is your jam, be sure to check it out.
Originally from Alexandria, Louisiana, Dr. Nita received a scholarship from the University of Dillard, where she received a bachelor's degree in biology. After graduation, Dr. Nita was admitted to the College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama, where she received a full scholarship. After her graduation, she completed her OB / GYN Residency program at the University of Louisville.
Dr. Nita Landry – Thank you very much for being here. I am excited to talk to you!
Runners discuss all kinds of TMI topics, so today we’ll talk about some of them.
- Recently, I talked with a friend about sports achievements and sex. (There is an idea that guys should not have sex before the competition – is it better to produce testosterone ??) … Is there any connection between athletic performance and sex?
- Can I hang out in sweaty training shorts or a capri cause – a yeast infection?
- What do you think of the periodic cups?
- Does bladder leakage occur only in women who have had a vaginal delivery? Or is this what affects many women with age?
- Do kegs help prevent urinary incontinence? If so – how often / how much should we do? Is there a recommended mode?
- New INNOVO device – how does it work?
- Are there any questions you would like to ask women? Something you want to leave us?
I hope this was informative and interesting! I will post links to RunEatRepeat.com on social networks and Dr. Nita's website.
