487. Ask Dr. G: What Hormonal Birth Control Does to Your Clitoris

By Commune

Welcome to the second episode of Ask Dr. G, a series where we get Dr. Sara Gottfried to answer questions from you, our Commune Community. Dr. G is a Harvard-educated physician, researcher, and educator.

In our second episode, Jeff asks Dr. G to demystify the menstrual cycle. They shed light on the hormonal communication between the brain and the ovaries, and as a bonus aside, Dr. G reveals what hormonal birth control does to the clitoris.
