STIs, living with herpes, stigma and your sexual health questions answered 

Ok Lifers, let's cut to the chase. Ya'll have either had an STI, dated someone with an STI or know someone that has/had an STI.... statistics say this is true! So we thought it was time to get a professional in to talk truths, smash stigmas and educate us all that little bit more. So Dr Hannah Kelly is in the house to answer all your questions! And you had a lot of them!

Dr Hannah is a medical doctor working in a general practice, who has spent the last few years working in sexual health, women’s health and sexual assault services. She is also the host of the podcast “Knee Deep - sexual and reproductive health with Dr Hannah.” The woman knows her stuff.

But before that, we spoke to one of our own community members about her experience with the herpes simplex virus. Did you know 1 in 8 people have tested positive to the herpes virus?

She speaks very openly about her diagnosis and how it has affected her the last 10 years, how to tell partners and how they have dealt with it and well, you may just be surprised. We can't thank her enough for sharing her story to help break down the stigma attached and to help others that may be affected in some way.

If you know someone that may benefit from this episode please don't be shy!

LIVING WITH ENDO. Talking endometriosis with Bridget Hustwaite 

Hey Lifers!

Whether you suffer from it yourself or you’ve got a friend or family member who does, we’re sure you’ve heard that living with endometriosis can be super challenging. We thought we knew what endometriosis was, but as it turns out, there’s a lot of misinformation and misunderstandings about endo.

Endometriosis currently affects 1 in 9 Australians assigned female at birth (and 176 million

people worldwide) but diagnosis takes on average 7 - 12 years. 

After years of dismissive doctors and misinformation, BridgetHustwaite, who you might know from her ‘Good Nights’ show on Triple J, finally received a diagnosis for her intensely heavy periods, pulsing headaches and excruciating abdominal pain in 2018. In this episode Bridget gets real with the truths and myths about endo and how to navigate the inconsistent answers from health professionals, how living with endometriosis can affect your dating and sex life and what it actually costs to have a chronic illness in Australia.

Bridget recently released her first book titled “How to Endo” which is a definitive guide to surviving and thriving with endometriosis. She also hosts an Instagram account, @endogram, where a community of women share their experiences of living with endometriosis. You can find Bridget on Instagram @bridgethustwaite.

The night my sister was killed. Talking domestic violence with Bianca Unwin 

Lifers, today we have one of the toughest but most moving interviews that we have ever aired. Meet Bianca, the sister of a beautiful woman named Katie who was murdered by her partner 3 years ago. This type of harrowing story seems to be all too common in Australia at the moment, and we feel as though the only way to change the domestic violence landscape is to speak about it. 

What started as “the happiest” Katie’s family had ever seen her, led to what they described as ‘childish jealousy’ and eventually her brutal murder. In this episode we learn about the warning signs that Katie’s partner displayed of troubling behaviour, coercive control and stalking. Bianca also speaks about how domestic violence has affected her entire family. In this ep is some great information about how to actively help someone experiencing family violence and organisations that can help.
