DR. ASHLEY WINTER- Hormones in Postpartum

Today, I speak with Dr. Ashley Winter, Board certified urologist who specializes in sexual medicine and postpartum hormones. After realizing that many of the common concerns that patients were brining to her clinic were not being addressed by the information she was being taught, she decided to do a fellowship in sexual disfunction. After working in managed health for five years following her fellowship, she decided to branch out into the tech side of medicine to help improve sexual health care for everyone.

We talk about: 

-foray into parenthood

-normal hormone levels

-failures in postpartum care

-impacts of estrogen 

-knowing when it’s something else

-topical estrogen and breastfeeding

-finding the right provider

-the benefits of Telehealth
