"Period pain is normal, everyone is supposed to simply bear with it."
"I just cry, what else can we do anyway?"
"Listen, I can't even stand straight, forget about work"
Before I set out on this mission, I spoke to over 80 women who repeated similar sentences. Even I, myself, used to speak like that.
"Bear with it, it is nothing," they all said.
But was it really nothing? I had faced these absurdities myself, but was taught to just push through them. It was my sister’s condition that triggered it in me.
She is now a medical student, and I have always been very proud of her. At the time, she was studying for her 12th standard Boards exams, and for NEET. While wincing in pain and with tears in her eyes, she struggled to stay focused somehow by keeping hot water bottles wrapped in towels, having painkillers, and whatnot. Everyone, including herself, maintained that this was simply ‘normal’.
No, It was not normal. It couldn't be.
The pursuit of excellence does not allow for any rest.We are ‘told’ that pain is an inevitable evil that we must bear silently. It is frustrating that simply having a female body puts us at a major disadvantage, and that it is taken for granted by our own community. We’re living in the 21st century, and women still do not have a truly effective solution to such a basic problem as this. I knew something has to be done. Because pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
The solitude of the pandemic triggered the final resolve, and Ednam was created with two objectives:
Right now, we are making a smart heating garment for menstrual period pain. It’s the most convenient heat therapy solution ever, that blends into your wardrobe flawlessly.
We need you to honour yourself uniquely, enjoy what works for you, and tell us everything that doesn't, so we can improve and create the best version of this product for you. After all, there is tremendous power in women supporting each other to co-create something that they deserve.
