In this Episode
This week on the show Haley & Alyssa are talking all things women’s health with Dr. Tori Fewell, OBGYN. Inspired by a mailbag question about how to prevent saddle sores, we take a deep dive into soft tissues health for cyclists, fertility, grooming, and returning to cycling after childbirth. She gives us some information about egg preservation for athletes who are interested in having children after their racing careers. Dr. Fewell also talks about some of the temporary effects on the menstrual cycle that she has seen in her patients after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. A triathlete and runner herself, Dr. Fewell gives us her best tips on how to keep our “saddle areas” happy and healthy so that we can all enjoy training and riding our bikes all season long.
Dr. Fewell and a colleague will be hosting a free virtual educational event on egg preservation for athletes, you can find more information and register for the event at: https://fb.me/e/jyHJmC0bY
Haley also snuck in a quick race recap interview with Skye Moench, following her third place finish at Ironman Tulsa this past weekend. Skye was the top American finisher, right ahead of her friend and race course rival Heather Jackson. She tells us what she loved about the course, how the race went for her, and what her plans are for the rest of the race season.
