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.
