“In the Ladies’ Room with Dr. Donnica” is the only public ladies' room you can enter any time without ever waiting on line! Hosted by women’s health expert and media commentator Donnica Moore MD, the podcast will feature real conversations, with real women, about really intimate issues. They may be embarrassing, sad or funny, but they will always be
interesting & informative. You know, like the best conversations you've ever had in ladies' rooms with your best friends. . .or total strangers. . .and a physician!

With a wide variety of guests with “been there, done that” expertise, Dr. Donnica discusses the health and wellness topics women often talk with her about in the ladies’ room. . . after speaking engagements, media
briefings, at events, or just because they happen to be chatting anonymously while waiting on line or over the sink. Generally, these topics tend to be things that are embarrassing; issues Dr. Donnica calls “the Toilet Talk topics” (anything related to bowel or bladder issues, gas, bodily functions, periods, discharges, etc.); questions related to sex and intimacy; subjects women are uncomfortable discussing in public or in “mixed company”; challenges women are struggling with; or anything top of mind or in the news. In each topic, we add our Top Tips about that topic as well as a call to action.

We’ve discussed BrCA genetic mutations before with respect to increasing the risk breast and ovarian cancers in several different episodes In The Ladies’ Room, but we’ve only mentioned in passing that these mutations can also affect men too, particularly regarding raising their risk of prostate cancer. And while only men can be diagnosed with prostate cancer, it also has a deep impact on the lives of the women who love them. So, today we’re going to talk with Wendy Poage, President of Prostate Conditions Education Council (PCEC) about what women (and men) need to know about prostate cancer.
