First off, yes, space gynaecology is a real specialty.

Second, yes, we interviewed a space gynaecologist on this episode. And third, there’s a whole lot we earth-bound menstruators can gain from research done on periods in space. In this episode, Varsha Jain MD, PhD talks about her research into menstruating astronauts and how that led her to study heavy bleeding on earth. She explains the causes and impacts of heavy bleeding and what she’s doing to develop new treatments for her patients suffering from this condition.
