Period care is an essential aspect of women's health, and it's crucial to approach it holistically. Periods can bring a range of physical and emotional challenges, and many women struggle with the associated symptoms, such as cramps, bloating, mood swings, and fatigue. Additionally, some women may feel ashamed or embarrassed to discuss their periods, leading to a lack of education and awareness about this critical aspect of their health.

To address these issues, we want to better understand women's experiences with periods, including their attitudes towards period care, their unmet needs, and their preferences for period relief products. As a healthcare company, we are specifically looking to explore new ideas and innovations in period care!

  1. How educated do you feel about your period and what information would you like to know more about?

  2. Do you feel empowered to discuss your period openly, or do you find it embarrassing? Why?

    • Who do you feel most comfortable discussing your periods openly with? Who do you feel LEAST comfortable? Why?
  3. How do you approach your period? What do you do to alleviate symptoms, and which are most difficult to manage?

  4. What needs do you feel are not currently being met for women when it comes to their periods?

  5. How do you see the future of period care 5-10 years from now? What will be different than how it is now and why?

  6. Propose an innovative product solution for period relief or to support your body’s natural processes related to your period that's not on the market today!

    • This could be a new supplement, medicine, patch, way to administer medication, food item, specific symptom relief product, etc.
    • This should NOT include sanitary/hygiene products (e.g. pads, tampons, cups, panties)
    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
