ABOUT MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT

MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT is the world's first non-clinical menstrual health service to be

available through your GP surgery *on social prescription. 

This means that, as well as the standard medical treatment routes for period problems & menstrual/menopausal suffering, your healthcare professional can refer you to our clinically-backed, free online

MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT foundation course & supportive community, designed to support you on your journey to menstrual wellbeing, whatever your diagnosis or chosen treatment route.

LEAD A LIFE WITH LESS MENSTRUAL SUFFERING.

LIVE A LIFE OF MENSTRUAL JOY.
 

Best of all, you don't even need a referral from a GP or healthcare professional -

you can simply SIGN YOURSELF UP

*MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT has been designed with input from clinicians in General Practice, Nursing, Psychology, Gynaecology, Reproductive Health, as well as from leaders in the menstrual movement, academics, charities, NGOs & (crucially) those who have suffered with their menstrual cycle, themselves.

OUR STORY

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

*MADE BY MENSTRUATORS =  we have menstruated, regularly and irregularly.

We also haven't menstruated: we've been pre-menarche, had absent periods, been on hormonal contraception, been pregnant/breastfeeding,

gone through surgical/chemical menopause, menopause and post-menopause. 

We also recognise, respect and welcome those that have a uterus who do not identify as 'menstruator' (and all those that do).

*MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT is for ANYONE experiencing menstrual suffering - regardless of age, class, race, faith, culture or gender.

OUR STORY

Our Founder & CEO, Kate Shepherd Cohen, suffered with period problems and her menstrual cycle for years (and years, and years). In sharing her experience with others, she began to hear a common thread that reflected her own experience: menstrual sufferers implicitly trusted their doctors but felt frustrated by the  healthcare system and frustrated by the burden of menstrual loneliness experienced in cycle after cycle of menstrual suffering between appointments.

On her own journey to discovering menstrual joy, she set herself a mission: to create an accessible MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT service - initially through an online course available at the point of seeking professional help (available on referral, as well as through self-sign-up/without professional referral) that would empower menstruators with a new shared language & supportive community, as well as empower healthcare professionals with the opportunity to offer a pathway alongside pills & procedures. 

A successful UK pilot was launched in 2021 in both rural and city areas (including in areas of social and economic disadvantage) and she was awarded Innovator of the Year for 'pioneering menstrual health' at the International Social Prescribing Conference with address from HRH The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles. 

To respond to the demand for the course from across the UK (and further afield),  

MENSTRUAL CYCLE SUPPORT has evolved into an exciting organisation of people - many of whom have also suffered with period problems and their cycles (or witnessed the suffering of loved-ones) -  determined to help build and provide a free online service that can be accessed by all and that will help us all to live in

a world free from avoidable menstrual suffering.

This free course is badly needed , especially at this time when the pandemic has put a strain on finances. It's reassuring that GPs can refer to a support course, rather than just giving prescription drugs

Founder & Research Director, Menstrual Matters
Sally King

A rapidly growing global human health & rights movement is eagerly awaiting your findings!

Period Positive Founder, former head of PHSE, 
menstrual educator & author, Chella Quint
