Dr. Casperson attended medical school at the University of Minnesota and moved to Denver for a six year urology residency. She specializes in urogynecology including urological conditions specific to female patients, such as stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal atrophy related to menopause, sexual health, and other health concerns. She’s an expert in InterStim therapy and Botox injections for bladder leakage, urinary incontinence, and incomplete bladder emptying, as well as vaginal laser therapy treatment for genitourinary symptoms of menopause. She also hosts her own podcast “You Are Not Broken.”
Dr. Casperson tells us about the joy she has discovered with telemedicine in the pandemic. She has been able to treat many of her patients via video calls. Kelly and Donnica talk about the pelvic area including a lot of confusion about the labeling of the female anatomy. They even go into waxing your vulva — not vagina!
When women hit their 50s, the labia minora begins to dissolve without topical estrogen. Now a lot of young women are worried that their labia is not normal. Kelly has a great rule for you: you’re normal! Everyone’s labia looks different, and that’s normal. Some people will get a reconstructive surgery to change the look of their labia to look more “normal”. Dr. Casperson finds this unnecessary and warns that it could damage the clitoris for women.
She has started teaching a female sex class. She teaches everything from the importance of lube to learning what creates female arousal. And now men are interested in having their own version of the sex class.
