Episode 102: Viva La Vulva
Gynaecological cancers include cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, vulvar, fallopian tube and placental cancers. As with any cancer, early detection and awareness is the key to a better health outcome. Today on The Hormone Hub, we speak with Kath Mazzella OAM, who is a 30year vulvar cancer survivor. Kath shares her experience and the work she has tirelessly been doing to bring awareness and break down the stigmas of gynaecological health. Starting with... using the anatomically correct terminology. There's more to it than a vagina. The vulva is the global term that describes all the structures that make external female genitalia. Which includes the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, vestibular bulbs, vulva vestibule, Bartholin's glands, Skene's glands, urethra, and vaginal opening. You know your body better than anyone, so if you're experiencing symptoms that are unusual, please get it medically checked... What's NOT normal... Abnormal or persistent vaginal bleeding – such as bleeding after menopause, bleeding that is not part of menstrual periods, or bleeding after sex Unusual vaginal discharge (if it's ongoing ask for a swab!) Pain, pressure or discomfort in the abdomen Swelling of the abdomen Change in bowel or bladder habits Pain during sex Weight loss Itching, burning or soreness in the vulva Lumps, sores or wart-like growths There are a number of conditions that may cause these symptoms, but please see your doctor as early detection is always best. Viva La Vulva!

🥳🥂 Celebrating 100 Episodes!! 🥳🥂 Whoo hoo - what a milestone! I want to extend a very grateful and heartfelt thanks to YOU, for listening, commenting, and supporting me with The Hormone Hub podcast for 100 episodes. It’s huge!!  In this episode I thought I’d give you a sneak peak behind the scenes - the highs, the growth, the lows and the milestones we’ve hit in the nearly 2 years of recording weekly episodes.  A highlight for me is seeing the actual transformations of clients… from either snippets they've taken from the podcast, or trusting the process and joining me in The Hormone Code Solution.  I’m very appreciative of our incredible guests who are always so generous in sharing their expertise and knowledge … and even the ones who have challenged me to up my game and my interviewing skills!  My fabulous team along the way… Zee who pulls the poddie together each week to make it happen, and Bel who was with me in the beginning when we fumbled along having no clue of what we were doing.  So what’s coming up and in the future of The Hormone Hub…  2024 is looking great!  A live roadshow with ½ day and full day workshops… dates coming soon for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Goldie. If you’d like me to come to your home town, let me know!  Our Bali Retreats - two exciting trips planned for this year, in April and October.  An online Perimenopause and Menopause 5 Day Summit with 20 international expert speakers.  Corporate wellness programs tailored for Menopause in the Workplace… if you need this in your workplace, I would love to hear from you!  Soooo before I run the risk of being escorted off the stage… I did forget while I was recording to celebrate hitting #1 in iTunes and in the top #10 Health and Fitness podcasts!!!  Phew…  Celebrating with heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been part of The Hormone Hub podcast journey and I invite you to continue the celebration by sharing your favourite moments, leave a review and / or tagging The Hormone Hub on social media.

Episode 96: Best of Hormone Hub - The Pros and Cons of HRT
When the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause begin to affect our quality of life… we do NOT have to suffer through and just put up with it. Nor do we need to take strong pharmaceuticals that come with their own side effects. The good news is, there is a middle ground in the form of bioidentical HRT which is now also known as MHT - Menopause Hormone Therapy. ​ In this “Best of Series” I’ll explain the HRT options that are now available to us, AND why we still need to pay attention to diet, lifestyle, stress management, sleep and exercise. It doesn’t need to be HRT or natural, it can be both! I want to give you the facts so you can make informed decisions about what YOU feel is right for YOUR body. ​ I break it down into... * Diet and lifestyle considerations, whether you’re choosing to use MHT or not * Who MHT is suitable for and when it’s appropriate to use it * Why MHT should never be one size fits all. We look at the 3 different options available, depending on where you’re at in your peri/menopause journey * The risks and downsides of MHT Links and resources: Brands of body identical MHT available in Australia and New Zealand (With full credit to Dr Lara Briden and her amazing book Hormone Repair Manual) Body identical estradiol Climara patch Estradot patch Estraderm patch Estrogel gel Sandrena gel Vagifem Low Estrofem tablet Body identical estriol Ovestin pessary Body Identical progesterone Prometrium capsule Utrogestan capsule For more about me and what I do, check out my website https://kyliepinwill.com Make sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss a thing!
