42: The Good Drugs
Sarah & Kaela are talking drugs - specifically IVF ovarian stimulation drugs. They share a few facts about some of the most common injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) drugs like Follistim, Gonal-F, Menopur, Bravelle, and more! Sarah shares some insight on why women with PCOS should be careful with stims containing LH and Kaela gives another drunk fertility history story. This time, it’s all about the origins of drugs like Menopur. Hint: the story involves the Pope, nuns, and lots and lots of urine! They also talk about NBC’s “This Is Us” and how infertility has become a main theme in one of the most popular shows on TV. And finally, they discuss whether or not the hair salon helps or hurts your self esteem.
