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.
