Menstrual Cycle Education in the UK

Welcome to Period Education

Welcome to Period Education, we are a group of academics and specialists working in schools, community and elite sport across the United Kingdom. Our research is centred on capturing voices of young people and teachers, we believe their experiences are key to re-shaping and creating change related to the menstrual cycle and have informed all resources we have produced.

I have always believed that knowledge is power for our young women. Knowing as much beforehand is always better than trying to explain afterward
