Dr. Melissa Bedford, Naturopathic Doctor outside the clinic in Victoria

Menstruation should be struggle-free, period.

I know what it feels like to say no to things that I genuinely enjoy, that I would otherwise say yes to, if I wasn’t worried that they would overlap with my period.   

You should not have to diminish your goals, miss out on plans, or suffer every month because of your period. I believe that a trusting, supportive doctor-patient relationship is critical for healing. We can figure this out together.
