Throughout history there’s been a stigma against talking about menstruation. From separating boys and girls in the health classroom to talk about periods only with females to discouraging talk about periods in the workplace, menstruation is still taboo. It’s been called dirty, unclean, unmentionable, and even used as an insult by men.
At Jubilance for PMS we’re breaking the taboo. We’ve created a group on Facebook, BYE PMS for you to discuss with other women what you’re going through in response to your cycle. You can talk about anything about your body in the group and we want to open the conversation to those discussions we can’t have in public. We’re also here for you with a licensed psychologist and scientists to answer all of your questions about women’s bodies.
It’s time to start talking about the emotional side that 80% of women experience around their periods! 80% of women experience some form of PMS! This includes the stresses, anxieties, and irritabilities of that time of the month. At Jubilance we’re trying to help you get back to the you, you love! We want you to stop missing that week of your life and start living.
The emotional side is especially prevalent right now. Periods and PMS symptoms are especially difficult right now with all the stresses happening in the world. We recommend talking to your friends and family about how you’re feeling, PMS is a real thing and it’s ok to talk about!
And if you need some help, Jubilance is there to help. In clinical trials, 86% of women experienced relief from stress, irritability, anxiety, and gloominess. We want to keep talking about periods and our bodies! We’re putting menstruation on the table.
