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 youth can learn about menstrual wellness. Some topics include:
1. Anatomy 101
2. Stages Of Puberty
3. Caring For The Vagina
4. Preparing For Your First Period
Our Menstrual Diary is a feature where youth from around the world can submit and share anonymous period stories. All submissions will be approved by the OurFlow team.
Our Period Talk is a social platform where youth can safely interact and talk about all things puberty and periods! This feature is currently only available to youth in our FlowTech4Girls program. As we monitor the safety and efficacy of the feature, we will invite other youth to join!
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.
