At the Real Period Project our aim has always been to get the period conversation going and, crucially, set periods in their proper place as one part of the whole menstrual cycle. We believe that once periods start being consistently taught in this way, they have a chance to make more sense. Because let’s face it, when seen in isolation, especially to a 10 year old, they can seem a bit unfair.
Puberty – fun times! It can be thorny and tough or smooth and plain sailing, every body is different and unique and every journey through puberty will be individual and experienced by each person in their own way. Some people start and finish young, some start young and it seems to go on forever, and for the late developers amongst us, they feel like they’re never going to start, and then everything seems to happen all at once.
