Growing up in a family of six sisters, BYU student JB Eyring has never felt uncomfortable discussing women’s health. However, in high school, Eyring realized that his family’s open approach to these topics wasn’t common, with most people casually discussing strep throat or a broken arm but feeling uneasy bringing up the menstrual cycle.

“Nobody even wants to acknowledge that these issues are a thing,” he says. “It’s troubling to me how there is a lack of normalization around women’s health.”
