This week’s newsletter is sponsored by Rescripted:
Rescripted is the #1 global media platform for fertility, infertility, and pregnancy loss with a 9M+ total network monthly reach and over 120K community members who care deeply about what we have to say.
We believe that Sex Ed in the United States is broken, which is why we are dedicated to rescripting the conversation around everything we should have learned about our bodies—from irregular periods to reproductive and hormonal health—to give people the tools and resources they need to be their own advocates.
At Rescripted, we are fostering a community of open conversation and burning the word “normal” when it comes to fertility and family-building.
We’re rescripting fertility, together.
