319: Convenient Birth Control and Menopause Support with Dr. Sophia Yen

This week on the Well Woman Show, I interview Sophia Yen MD is the CEO and Co-Founder of PandiaHealth, providing expert women’s hormonal healthcare, convenience, and confidentiality via telemedicine and medication delivery. Pandia Health is the ONLY #WomenFounded #WomenLed #DoctorFounded/Led birth control delivery company.

She co-founded Pandia Health because “No one should suffer from ‘pill anxiety’ – the fear of running out of birth control and the stress of obtaining it each month.” Dr. Yen enjoys educating the public and physicians about birth control, menstrual regulation, race differences in birth control, BMI and Emergency Contraception, and #PeriodsOptional.

Graduated from MIT, UCSF Medical School, and UC Berkeley’s MPH program and with 20+ years in medicine, she’s a Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford Medical School. She co-founded 3 non-profit projects to improve the lives of women.

We discuss

  • Why we need to see a doctor is you have painful or heavy periods, or menopause symptoms
  • How so many women don’t know that you can #Make Periods Optional
  • and Finally, that not all telemedicine companies are the same. Dr. Yen advocates for women founded, women led companies.

The Power Up Conference and Concert, happening on August 26th, will bring together inspiring speakers, industry leaders, and performers to discuss and celebrate women’s empowerment. And I’m excited to share that the Well Woman Show is a media partner for this event. This year, the event will be held both in-person and virtually, allowing everyone to participate, no matter where you are. It’s an excellent opportunity to network, gain insights, and support the incredible work being done to close the gender gaps.

So let’s power up and be part of the movement towards gender equality. Remember, change begins with each one of us. And by supporting initiatives like Dr. Adia Gooden’s work, Gloria Feldt’s Take The Lead, and attending events like the Power Up Conference and Concert, we can create a more equitable and inclusive world for everyone.
