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.
After traveling abroad to Africa, Europe the Middle East and India, I came home in 2017, and was a resident at both 1776 and Futureworks incubators in Brooklyn, NY. BUP then joined forces with the NY menstrual health coalition, for period equity, and also pitched the BUP Smart Menstrual Pad...twice.
BUPeriod is currently a resident at Brooklyn Fashion Design Accelerator, a sustainable focused co-working space for Pratt Fellows, startups and small business who are all in alignment with the triple bottom line of smart fashion, eco-friendly, and innovation towards zero waste. As a P.B.C., we aim for BCorp.
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.
Stay tuned for BUPeriod's pocket and/or pocketbook full of joy to get you smiling and affirming!
Espcially for those of us who have symptoms of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS or any other reproductive disease, beauty products may have chemicals that can affect our hormonal compounds which can have an affect regulating our menstrual cycle. .
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.
