I remember when I first had my period. I was wearing a tampon during a football game for the first time and it started to come out – I can clearly picture the moment where I did a tackle and I felt it dislodge. I was in so much pain for the rest of the game. I’m lucky that that event didn’t deter me – because an experience like that can be traumatizing. Having a period can really turn girls off sport – however, if they were to stay, sport becomes a safe place where they can get help and support. My teammates and I really lean a lot on each other during our menstrual cycles – I think this says a lot about how important it is for women to stay in sport.
For World Menstrual Health Day, I teamed up with PUMA and Modibodi® to stop the stigma surrounding our periods! As Refinery29 put it in their coverage of the partnership,"Sadly, society has prohibited period talk to the point where teenage girls would rather sit out sport altogether. According to a global survey conducted by PUMA and Modibodi®, half of all girls skip sport due to their period – with three quarters experiencing anxiety and a lack of concentration due to fear of leaking. The time has come to tackle the taboo and open up the conversation.
