CHARLESTON, S.C., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For millions of girls each year, their first period shows up without warning. And for too many girls, their response is either: freak out; crawl under the covers and wait until it's over; rush off to the bookstore or, worse, scour the Internet for some info.
Now there's a better way. Girlology, a national leader in sexuality education, has published a concise and practical e-book that's all about first periods. From a little anatomy talk to common period problems to how-to instructions for using pads and tampons – it's ALL in You Got IT. Girlology has partnered with Procter & Gamble, maker of Always pads and Tampax tampons, to make the e-book available for free download, just in time for Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28.
Girlology founders, Dr. Melisa Holmes (an OB/GYN) and Dr. Trish Hutchison (a pediatrician), understand what girls want to know when they get their periods. Melisa and Trish have been teaching Girlology courses about puberty and sexuality to girls and parents for more than a decade. You Got IT is their fifth book – check out others here!
"We've heard time and again that girls want a resource that's practical vs. clinical," says Melisa. "We wrote You Got IT to be a definitive, concise guidebook for girls."
Adds Trish: "As an e-book, You Got IT can be immediately accessible and immediately helpful – which is exactly what girls and parents need."
"We believe this book is a tremendous resource for girls and their parents at this important time of change," says Amanda Hill, Regional Brand Director, Always and Tampax. "We're proud to partner with Girlology, and proud that we can help make You Got IT available to as many girls as possible."
ABOUT GIRLOLOGY: Girlology provides medically accurate, age-appropriate sexuality education for kids and parents delivered with cringe-free candor.
