Discussing “that time of the month” can often bring on a collective sigh. Let’s face it, none of us enjoy Aunt Flo and our periods can often leave us feeling bloated, exhausted, and less confident. The good news is, we’re all in this together and you’re not alone! In fact, in a survey of 500 U.S. women ages 13-24, a staggering 64% of young women said they frequently feeling “period shame” – meaning they feel embarrassed and less confident during certain situations when they’re on their period. Even more alarming, 75% of young women said they frequently opt out of exercise or sports due to their period.
