Knowing EVERYTHING about your cycle is powerful. Tuning in to your daily, weekly and monthly cues frees you up to focus on the other parts of your life in a healthy, balanced way. Maisie Hill explains all you would ever want to know in an accessible and interesting manner. There are even dedicated chapters for your first period and menopause - which will be a tremendous help for my daughter, and for me later in life. I can’t imagine how puberty would have been different if I had this book. Now I have such a greater understanding of my body and feel in control. Read this book and harness the power of your cycle.
One last thing: I really valued how the author carefully chose her language/pronouns and acknowledged that not all menstruators are women and not all women menstruate. She also included a very powerful section on period poverty and ways to help while accounting for the bias her own privilege brings to the conversation. It was inspiring and a good example of how to go about affecting social justice.
And a last, last thing: I got the audio version too which Maisie Hill reads herself, and it is fantastic.
