Did you know that polycystic ovary syndrome is thought to affect as many as 10% of all women of reproductive age? It’s true! It is the most common endocrine disorder and the #1 reason many women have fertility issues.
If you have ever visited a doctor, his or her first line of defense—and he will prescribe this without actually testing you for cystic ovaries, just because it’s such a handy, efficient drug—is birth control pills. But what if you don’t have health insurance? Your pills might cost $75 every month! Maybe some months you buy birth control pills instead of toilet paper! Hilarious!
Oh, look, a video.
Among those playing the roles of the Middle-Aged Dudes who know all about women’s health are: Twin Peaks‘ Ray Wise! The dad from That 70s Show and Dead Poets Society! Parks and Recreations‘ Nick Offerman! (I’m not sure that Mr. Megan Mullally is quite “middle-aged,” but then again, I am old.) Plus, Tim Meadows, who is rocking some really radical 1960s NASA eyeglasses. Those glasses say “expert.”
And then there is Judd Nelson, who my friend Robyn briefly convinced me was dead. I was so upset, you guys. She was like, “Yeah! Years ago, I think!” and I was like, “Oh, my God, oh, my God, when was Suddenly Susan canceled anyway, oh, my God.” And then I was like, “Wait, are you thinking of David Strickland?” And now Robyn was very, “Um, I think I know who Judd Nelson is,” all indignant, and then I was mad with grief. I love you, Judd!
The video also features Corey Stoll, a stage actor about whom I am ten kinds of crazy. I almost didn’t recognize him without his Law & Order: Los Angeles mustache! YOU CAN PUT YOUR LAWS AND ORDERS ON MY BODY ANYTIME, COREY! Just kidding, you can’t, because I’m a feminist. (You are still nice to look at, however.)
This video is possibly NSFW thanks to a catalogue of euphemisms for ladyparts. However, the most disturbing of these “euphemisms”—uttered by none other than Ray Wise—is probably “tummy pockets.”
