Did you know that about a quarter of the world's population menstruates, but most of them are not comfortable talking about it?

In this episode of #LaidOffLife, Jennifer and Jigna talk with Dr. Nicole Van Ness, a marriage and family therapist, specializing in sexual issues and disorders.

She further provides awareness about menses, its myriad symptoms ranging from mild to severe, and how vital it is for companies to normalize menstruation. Just because women have monthly cycles, they don't underperform, and it should not be a reason for discrimination!

This episode further explores on how frontline workers deal with menses and how men can experience mood and hormonal disorders as well. Tune in to learn more about normalizing menses as an essential bodily function.
