You Are Not Broken

Menopause Society President — Dr. Lisa Larkin


I talk with Dr. Lisa Larkin, President of Menopause Society about how the conversation around women’s health has evolved over the years and the exciting changes coming down the pipeline.


  • Why did NAMS (North American Menopause Society) rebrand to Menopause Society?
  • “We can’t pigeon hole women’s health into the Ob/Gyns” – Dr. Casperson
  • “Women’s health doesn’t belong to any one specialty” – Dr. Larkin
  • Dr. Larkin shares her story about not being trained in
    menopause and her career journey and how she understands the WHI study.
  • We talk about fezolinetant (Veozah) – the new non-hormonal
    medication for hot flashes.
  • One of Dr. Larkin’s favorite thing to talk about is breast
    cancer risk assessment and prevention so we discuss this.
  • We define dense breasts.
  • Why alcohol just doesn’t make sense in midlife
  • Dr. Larkin shares her personal journey with menopause symptoms and sexual dysfunction. And shares non-hormonal options. And what you can do without seeing your doctor.
  • The role of confidence in midlife – lack of confidence in what to do and how Menopause Society/her clinic/my podcast can help – and what we see when women get confident and educated in midlife.
  • What excites Dr. Larkin about menopause and the women’s health space

She’s the sister, urologist, sex expert and friend you never knew you needed….until now.

Dr. Kelly Casperson is a board certified urologist. That makes her an expert of the pelvis. And her mission is to empower women to live their best love lives. Because let’s be honest. None of us were taught right. Combining the power of mind, body and relationships, Dr. Kelly joyously breaks down the societal barriers that are keeping us from awakening into our best intimate experience.

Whether you are young or past menopause, single or in a long-term bond, it is never too late or too early to realize YOU ARE NOT BROKEN. With humor, candor and ease, I break down the stories that we have been told about being sexual beings, to help us play, explore, and normalize our lives. Nothing in this podcast is personal medical advice, of course.
