THE JOURNEY OF BUPERIOD: A STARTUP LIFE

THE UGLY 

Two years, alot of failures, trials and tears. 

THE BAD

A dis-ease called Impostor Syndrome...and yes...it's real AND can happen to the best of startup founders. A never ending cycle of wash, rinse, and repeat of doubt.

THE GOOD

2019 began with an elite R & D partner. 

THE GREAT 

I'm still here. I'm still hungry. I'm still moving. Period.

About Us

In the Beginning.

FoundHer adn CEO Vanessa Siverls shares her journey with uterine fibroids. From pain to purpose.

So...22 Fibroids later...I jumped. 10 years of fibroid management left me with no other choice but to help other women who were like me; heavy bleeders who needed menstrual pads that were designed for comfort, security, sleekness and not diaper like.  Hence the BUP SmartPad. Coming soon.

And then...

After grad school, I traveled abroad to Africa, Europe, Middle East and India. And then came home in 2017, and was a resident at both 1776 and Futureworks incubators in Brooklyn, NY. And then joined forces with period equity efforts, and then pitched and won the 2018 

Make It in Brooklyn Pitch Competition.

What types of food can affect my period?

Food and fibroids. You are what you eat. What does your body want and need? Food for fibroid thought

Great News! I was able to eliminate ALL CRAMPING, BLOATING and NAUSEA just by reducing salt, sugar and dairy from my diet. In addition, I practiced the Blood Type Diet. Ask your nutritionist if you suffer from the above with your period what diet lifestyle changes may be good for you.


Stay tuned for sustainable health, wellness & beauty blog designed for you to just be... you. Period

How can stress affect my period?

Stress and anxiety can be culprits of cramping and discomfort during your period. The Fibroid Gospel

Our uterus "IVY" has enough pressure and stress shedding her menstrual cycle. Self Care and stress reduction the week prior to your cycle would make "IVY" a very happy camper. Not cramper. 


FYI...Warm herbal teas such as chamomile and/or red leaf raspberry has a calming effect during your cycle. Ask your local natural food store for additional insight.


Stay tuned for BUPeriod's pocket and/or pocketbook full of joy to get you smiling and affirming!

Can too much beauty affect my period?

Our beautiful black skin needs to breath and not be choked with umpteen ingredients in products.

For those of us who have symptoms of uterine fibroids or any other reproductive disease, beauty products may have chemicals that can have an affect on our hormones.


FYI...I fully removed myself from  beauty products that had ingredients I could not pronounce. Ultimately I ended up only using natural oils, vegan shampoo and Shea butters.


Stay tuned for more insights and information on menstrual health management for women with uterine fibroids and other reproductive issues.
