Dani Nikitenko / Menstrual cycle. Tools to explore body changes.

The project is made for menstruating people in reaction to the social tabooing. Caused by this taboo, knowledge about the cycle is limited. This fact determines the social discourse and is relevant for the rights menstruating persons claim in society.

My project aims to empower menstruating people to explore cycle-related changes of their bodies alone in an atmosphere that they choose and in which they feel comfortable. For this purpose I developed several tools and a booklet with informations. Each one deals with one aspect of the cycle: the changes in cervix, basal body temperature, cervical fluids, breast and menorrhea.
