The episode tackles myths surrounding women’s mental health, Femtech, menstrual health, gynecologist visits, women’s sexual desire, and safety concerns in FemTech.
Myth 1. Women are more Emotional than Men By debunking the belief that women are more emotional than men due to hormonal fluctuations, I emphasize that emotional experiences are universal and influenced by various factors.
Myth 2. Mental Health Apps, devices, and other technologies can replace professional mental health therapy.
While it might sound tempting to only rely on convenient technologies developed to improve brain health, a holistic approach to mental well-being will offer better outcomes. Including professional support, community, and self-determining acts of joy is critical for a lasting impact.
Myth 3. Femtech is only about pregnancy and menstrual health. Femtech extends beyond menstrual tracking, challenging stereotypes and highlighting the diverse scope of Femtech, including menopause, breast health, autoimmune diseases, and sexual health.
Myth 5: Women over 40 do not need to worry about getting pregnant.
As more and more choose their 40s to start or grow their families, the need for innovation and support in women’s digital health, particularly for conditions associated with pregnancy over 40, is highlighted.
