Season 2 Episode 21: Keep the babies away

Excerpt: Kate talks to Dr. Jessica Kiley about periods and contraception, with a particular focus on long-acting contraception. Consider an implant and become a biohacker ahead of the Silicon Valley dudebros!

Summary: I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Jessica Kiley in the summer of 2017 when I was up at Northwestern to give a talk. Her research interests and clinical practice were fascinating, and I knew I had to have her on the podcast, not least of all because I need to better represent the many people who want insight into how to not have a baby!

Dr. Kiley and I had a really lovely conversation – I would consider myself lucky to have her as a doctor. Have a listen to learn more about long-term contraception options – you have many more options than a hormonal IUD (though that’s also a great option).

Jessica Kiley, MD, MPH, OBGYN
