Period positivity starts with asking questions.

This informative, irreverent, and absorbing ebook covers all your period-related questions - why they're taboo (and needn't be) and how to navigate the whole bleeding thing, from first periods to fertility, euphemisms to uteruses, menstrual products to menopause.

Period Positive movement founder and menstrual researcher Chella Quint's answers are frank, funny, and fascinating.

Let's get period positive. It's about bloody time.
