    It would be helpful to know if the shorter menstrual cycles are ovulatory with short luteal phases, ovulatory with normal luteal phases or anovulatory. Regardless, a job that messes with your cycle and fertility has many potential health consequences.

    I think the PP Youtube video does a better job of explaining their intention than the articles and commentaries I’ve read about it so far. I like the idea that by removing the labels, you move the discussion to the middle ground, where people with something valuable to say can say it. Will it work? Only time will tell.

    Loved the story about the microbiome of the human vagina; the female vagina, and body, as eco-system not to be messed with. I Tweeted and FB this link last week.
