4 Phases of Menstruation - by Phasey

Updated: Mar 9, 2021

Asha, the owner of Phasey, got her period at age thirteen, then promptly tied her sweatshirt around her waist, put her pads in her pencil case, and spent the next 15 years trying to forget about it. Who can relate? We know we can.


...and just like Asha and the Phasey Team, we believe in a world where periods are normalized. Which is why we believe in the Phasey mission to educate & spread awareness as well as provide functional foods for periods.
