"Just a Period"

You don't have to accept severe pain or heavy bleeding. Find out more about our campaign for better menstrual health and read other people's stories about their periods.

Gender inclusivity

Being inclusive is absolutely critical to the success of our campaign.

We use the terms “women”, “girls”, and “people who menstruate” to reflect the fact that while most individuals affected by problem periods are women and girls, some trans, non-binary and intersex people can experience these too. Everyone who needs high quality information, treatment, care and support should be able to access it.
