I’m asked often by friends if I can please not bring up periods within the first few minutes of being introduced to someone new. I think it is important to talk about periods, to share advice and stories about puberty, blood, leaking, cramps and period poops, so within a few minutes of meeting someone, I’m recommending period products and talking about period poverty.
There’s lots of information out there and it can get a little confusing figuring out what works and what’s safe, and when to see a doctor. There’s also lots of amazing people working in this space, challenging taboos, removing the tampon tax, fighting for menstrual equity and asking each other about their uteri.
