About this deal

With sparkling narrative and a commitment to care, Clancy shows why menstruation matters for all of us. Written by autistic author Robyn Steward, this is a detailed guide for young people aged 9 to 16 on the basics of menstruation. Her leg goes numb, she loses 30 pounds, and when she goes to a doctor, she’s sent home with antibiotics. Out on August 19th 2021 with Wren and Rook (Hachette), this third book baby is a bit of a departure for me, as it’s a book for children (age 9 to 12) and it’s all about periods!

My Period is perfectly written for girls going through puberty, in a language that they will understand. A tour de force of careful and robust science, personal reflection, and deep compassion that debunks misinformation and points the way to true menstrual liberation.As a general rule, once they're settled, you'll have a period every 23 to 35 days and it will last 2 to 7 days. Here are some of the questions that you, as a parent, might get asked by girls about periods, with suggestions on how to answer them: How will I know when my periods are going to start?

Period] is an important and provocative look at an incredibly common yet stigmatized bodily process and at the fatal flaws underlying both our science and our society.

This is a BOOK, and so we cannot provide all the pages for you here so you can take a look as otherwise you’d be here forever. Our groups are designed to help support girls aged 10-12 as they enter puberty and embark on their teenage years.

It's not a sudden gush – you'll just see a reddish-brown stain on your pants or on your sheets when you wake up in the morning. Clancy takes up a host of timely issues surrounding menstruation, from bodily autonomy, menstrual hygiene, and the COVID-19 vaccine to the ways racism, sexism, and medical betrayal warp public perceptions of menstruation and erase it from public life.

I was in my late twenties before I realised I could tell when I ovulated and it wasn’t until my thirties that I started to understand the impact my entire cycle had on me, and how, by tuning into it more, I could look after my mental and physical health better. You could print it out and leave it for your child where you think they might spot it, and pick it up themselves, or you can start the conversion yourself with the book as a bit of an aid. Because, hey, half-ish of the population gets their period, and it’s the most basic bodily function, and it shouldn’t be kept a secret anymore. Hey Girls are doing the best they can do help in the UK, and we need more organisations like theirs globally.
