Frequently Asked Questions

This program is open to everyone, both individuals and businesses.

The #askHER Workplace Reset is a free initiative, thanks to our generous partners, as we believe menstrual equity and empathy should never exist behind a paywall.

To get started, apply as either an individual or as a business owner above. We recommend doing an assessment on the menstrual-support your workplace offers, as well as where that support could be strengthened.

After you register for the #askHER Workplace Reset initiative, you’ll hear from the Fibroid Foundation team with next steps on your journey to an equitable and empathetic workplace!

The #askHER Workplace Reset will conclude in Spring 2023 when the Fibroid Foundation will award recognition Seals for Fibroid-Friendly Workplaces!

I would barely make it to my office on the second floor. I was always so winded and tired. There was no elevator on that side of the building and getting to one meant taking a longer walk from my car towards an elevator that had a 50/50 chance of working. Everyday I had to take my time with those stairs. And the closest bathroom was on the third floor in the middle of the building. Each step felt like it could’ve been my last”

“I do hair! I have bleach in my client’s foils, as I’m standing talking waiting for them to process, I feel that gush! I know I’ve bled all over, my thighs, my top area and the back. I can’t just leave the salon, but am lucky enough that I can clean up and go on because I have an apron on protecting my clothes from hair color. When I’m leaving for the day my boss says “you still have your apron on”… I know!”

“Everything was fine until I was getting ready to leave the office. I stood up from my desk and it felt as if my insides caved in. Blood streamed all down my legs, ruined my shoes, and was on the carpet. I had to clean up myself and then try to lift the blood off the carpet before going home. Luckily the office was practically empty so I was able to clean up without anyone around.”
