Watch: Kristen Bell’s web video ‘momsplains’ vaginal health
Hollywood superstar actress Kristen Bell this week unveiled the latest video in her popular “Momsplaining” series. It takes on vagina myths, including whether you can get pregnant during your period and how diet might affect your reproductive health.
“You can get pregnant in a hot tub,” Bell says. “Because that’s where we conceived our second child.”
Dr. Ann Windsor, an OB/GYN with Aurora Medical Center in Grafton, Wis., lauded Bell for speaking out about health issues that sometimes only get whispered about outside of a doctor’s office.
“Good for her for talking about women’s health in a clear way that will get these messages out to a lot of people,” Dr. Windsor says. “We need to whisper less about reproductive health and speak plainly about how women can best care for their bodies.”
