7 Badass Feminists Who Are Freeing The Period

Women bleed. It happens. Period. Sure, periods are uncomfortable and messy, but they are also totally natural and impact over half the world’s population. Still, most of us loathe talking about them. Rather than use the P word, we’ve come up with any number of alternative phrases, from “Aunt Flo” to “Surfing the Crimson Wave” to “The Red Wedding” (thank you, Game of Thrones). We hide pads and tampons inside bathroom cupboards and cringe at…

  Nothing puts you in a better mood then when the weekend finally arrives after what feels like a never ending week. But when Monday rolls back around that Friday feeling seems like a distant memory and the Monday blues kick back in. You seem to spend most of Sunday night dreading the next day and this means you only get one full day a week – Saturday, to unwind and chill out. Getting into…

Could a New Hormone End the Misery of Repeat Miscarriages?

  Progesterone has been used to help treat infertility for more than 50 years but experts now claim that it could be used to prevent miscarriages. The hormone not only regulates the menstrual cycle and plays a role in sexual desire, it also helps stabilise the endometrium – the inner lining of the uterus.

For the first time, researchers have found cellular evidence and a biological cause for Premenstrual Dysmorphic Disorder (PMDD) – a severe form of PMS. A sex hormone-sensitive gene complex can cause PMDD and the way the body reacts to oestrogen and progesterone.

At Freda, every month is a #GivingTuesday…

Freda wants to simplify your periods

    If you’re like us , you have never asked what’s in your tampon. Most of us see a wrapped white fluffy product and assume it’s completely cotton.  Well it isn’t. Most women continue to buy the same products from brands that have dominated the industry for ever, unaware that over the past 50 years, the composition of tampons have shifted from natural ingredients like cotton, to synthetic ingredients such as rayon and plastic,…
