I was really moved by the documentary. Even though I am privileged, my life has been greatly shaped by my excessive bleeding. from age 14 to age 49, I have had over 4,000 days of bleeding. I have bled for 8 days every 15-20 days. It’s been a horrible journey, and I am lucky to have pads, tampons, and ibuprofen, and was able to attend school and university. I had to use cloth rags once while traveling, and I was unable to do anything for 3 days and I bled through the bedding. had I been born somewhere else, I would have had to drop out of school at 14. The fact that periods are keeping girls and women out of school, breaks my heart. I want to help, and this is my first tiny step. Thank you.
