Our project aims to identify and explore issues around menstruation in extreme or challenging environments around the world, looking at many different factors including types of environment, age, health status, contraception status, cultural background, and practicalities in the field. The project looks to produce practical information for women and guidance for practitioners. Ultimately, the project will seek to encourage solidarity between women, and promote their health and wellbeing, including participation in adventure and outdoor activities.

Please contact us to donate and help us deliver this project. Your generosity helps fund our research. We aim to produce and publish a guide detailing practical solutions in different environments and contexts which will be a valuable resource for women, expedition leaders and outdoor professionals. We also hope that this project will open up the conversation surrounding menstruation in extreme environments and support further research in the future.
We want to gather as much data as possible in our research study, and we would value your contribution, so please fill out our survey when it is released later this year. This helps us to learn as much as possible about the broad experience of menstruation and its effects on people’s lives.

If you would like to engage more actively in the project, we welcome you to attend a focus group, designed to provide a safe space to discuss menstruation as a barrier to women and girls’ participation in expeditions and adventurous activities, concerns, and menstrual-related problems that may be faced. Details of focus groups will be provided in MMiEEP newsletters.
