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.
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

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.

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.

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.
