About Us

Love Your Menses®, was founded in 2019 in response to the growing menstrual wellness needs of young people. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we promote menstrual equity and dispels myths surrounding menstruation by creating a safe, uplifting and supportive space for girls, young women, and people of color who menstruate to become more aware of their bodies.

We do this work through evidence based menstrual wellness education, youth programming, resource connection, and mentorship.​

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.
