Women’s Healthcast: Verrilli answers common period questions

Tags: podcast, Outreach, residency

UW Ob-Gyn resident Lauren Verrilli, MD, PGY-4, appeared on the latest episode of the UW Ob-Gyn department podcast to discuss the mechanics of menstruation. 

She discussed what happens in the body during the menstrual cycle, what cramps are, whether periods are medically necessary, and more. (She even addressed the favorite myth of every girls’ dorm floor – do our cycles really sync up if we spend enough time together?)
