Bodies Podcast 7 MIN, 5 SEC

Allison Behringer was in a serious relationship with her boyfriend, Luke. Then she started experiencing pain during intercourse. It got worse.. And eventually they had to stop. So she saw a gynecologist -- That gynecologist told her she was fine and that “lots of women have pain during sex.” She decided that was unacceptable and went to see another doctor, who told her the pain might be because of her birth control. Her own story became the inspiration for a new podcast KCRW debuted this week. It’s called Bodies, and it looks at how women are treated by the medical community.
