Chella Quint is a Brooklyn-born, UK-based designer, writer, and performer. She coined the phrase ‘period positive’ in 2006 and founded #periodpositive to use humor and joy to challenge menstrual taboos, and find long-term solutions to period poverty. Chella is a leading expert on menstruation education and the author of Own Your Period for young people and Be Period Positive for adults. She created the Period Positive Pledge as a framework for developing menstruation-inclusive policy and outreach.

In this episode, we talk about period taboos and Chella’s work to break them, the life cycle of your period, cycle charting for young people, what’s normal for periods during the teen years, and so much more!

This episode is brought to you by Nutrisense, a provider of continuous glucose monitors. Visit Nutrisense.io and use my code NICOLE25 for $25 off your first month.

A Nutrisense CGM is an incredible way to monitor your blood sugar levels in real-time and their app helps you see exactly how your diet and lifestyle specifically affect your blood sugar. I tried a Nutrisense CGM this past summer and it was a game-changer. It was amazing to see how my meals and specific foods were affecting me positively or negatively. There was a whole lot of experimentation while using it to see what worked best for me and some foods were real shockers. Now you can get a Nutrisense CGM and take $25 off your first month of service. This includes two CGMs to be used for two weeks each, the app, and a month of free dietitian support. That support is invaluable and the best part of the service.

If you want to get your hands on a CGM, head to Nutrisense.io and use NICOLE25 for $25 off your first month.
