Ask August Is a Free Health Tool Making Period Education More Accessible

Get informative and inclusive answers to all your burning questions.

A natural bodily function, menstruation is one of the most common human experiences. Sadly, periods are still stigmatized, and honest discussion of menstrual health is often taboo, a fact that can prevent people from seeking and accessing fundamental knowledge about their own bodies.

Founded by college students Nadya Okamoto and Nick Jain, Ask August is a new online tool making period education more accessible with straight-forward, no-frills answers to commonly asked questions. The website’s medical board of doctors answer burning queries including “Will taking testosterone stop my period?” and “Is using a tampon equivalent to losing your virginity?,” questions people might be too embarrassed to bring up in-person. Using genderless language to tackle topics ranging from period pain to reusable pads, Ask August is an inclusive resource for anyone who menstruates.

Head to Ask August for answers to all your period-related questions.
