What do you really know about the menstrual cycle? India Rakusen explores the whole bloody story, discovering facts that could change your life. Periods are just the beginning.

In this intimate, bold and taboo-busting series from BBC Sounds and Radio 4, we follow the menstrual cycle from bleeding to, well, bleeding again – with all the amazing science, drama, history, personal stories and politics in-between. We’ll learn how understanding your hormones and your cycle can change your life, one day at a time.

Featuring ideas and conversations with a wide range of contributors, including Dr Anita Mitra (aka the Gynae Geek), Dr Ruth Arumala (Pretty In Pink podcast), author Lisa Lister (Code Red), historian Dr Elinor Gibson (Unwell Women), model, activist and entrepreneur Kenny Ethan Jones (Pink Parcel’s IM ON campaign), Psychologist and author Dr Sarah E. Hill (This is Your Brain On Birth Control), and exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. Sims (Women Are Not Small Men).
