Why Your Vagina Does What it Does | Dr. Nicole Williams

Dr. Nicole E. Williams is a board certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. With the philosophy of marrying both alternative and traditional medicine, Dr. Williams opened The Gynecology Institute of Chicago in July 2013 and recently published This is How You Vagina.

In this episode, we cover the following:

  • Tour of female body parts and misconceptions about the female body
  • Vaginal odor: what is normal and when to see a doctor
  • Sitz bath benefits and how it differs from vaginal steam and douching
  • Yeast infection symptoms and treatments
  • How your vagina changes during pregnancy, after birth and in menopause
  • Tips for which lubricant is best and probiotics for women

“There is no such thing as a pretty labia. There is what an ideal might be. We now know that most of the pictures in textbooks of women’s labia, thanks to Dr. Netter, picture them as small, which is not the case at all for almost every human female. ” – Dr. Nicole Williams
