Our Flow, Our Health
Our Flow is an educational menstrual wellness app which provides a fun, safe, and engaging space for adolescents to learn about the menstrual cycle and connect with other youth who menstruate.
Our Flow app is designed by Black and Brown youth in a social and technology innovation program managed by Love Your Menses, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To learn more about our organization:
It is well known that cultural stigmas and lack of menstrual education can cause fear and shame globally for girls beginning their menstrual journey at menarche-occurrence of the first period. Our Flow is a youth-focused technology platform designed to educate, inform, support, and empower Black and Brown girls throughout their adolescent menstrual journey.
This App Features:
Our Menstrual University is a platform where users can learn about menstrual wellness. Some topics include:

4. Preparing For Your First Period
Our period tracker allows users to not only track their menstrual cycle but to track their lifestyle to see how their sleep, water intake, and nutrition affect their periods.
**We do not share any of your information. What is inputted on the app, stays on the app!**

Our Flow is everything I wanted when I was a 12 year old and got my period for the first time. I hope youth and parents/guardians use this app as a tool to understand the menstrual cycle and feel supported.
