About Us

Love Your Menses was founded in Boston, MA in 2019 in response to the growing menstrual wellness needs of girls, menstruating youths, and women. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our mission is to dispel myths surrounding menstruation, promote menstrual equity, and build the next generation of leaders by providing an educational, uplifting, and supportive space for Black and Brown girls, women, and all people who menstruate to learn about the menstrual cycle and thrive throughout their reproductive years and beyond.

Our organizational model promotes menstrual equity through intergenerational and intercultural community conversations, evidence-based menstrual health education and disease prevention, resource connection, mentorship, and sisterhood-building activities.​

Our Mantra

Love Your Menses- to be in tune with your menstrual cycle, to advocate for equitable resources & safe spaces to menstruate, to support other people who menstruate, and most importantly, to flow through life unapologetically.
