Impact of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs)

Welcome to another episode of the Fertility Confidence podcast. I am your host, Dr. Kelsey Duncan, naturopathic doctor, and the founder and creator of the Fertility Confidence method. 

In today’s episode, we are talking about Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and their impact on your hormones and your fertility. What are they, how do they impact you, and ways to decrease your exposure to EDCs, in particular through your personal care products.

Here are the main topics of today’s episode:

  • What are ECDs (endocrine disrupting chemicals)?
  • Impact on hormones and fertility
  • Exposure to EDCs and our control over this
  • Environmental exposures
  • Big three offenders – fragrance, phthalates, and parabens
  • Smart and effective ways to reduce exposure to EDCs at home
  • Doing your research, without going down a rabbit hole 
  • Fertility Confidence team resources and community discussions to support you
  • Beautycounter (more info below in shownotes)
