Yelena Yemchuk provides a beautiful and sensitive illustration for Laura Sampedro’s article titled ‘Do you really need your period?’. The piece looks at how, as families have gotten smaller and time spent pregnant or breast-feeding has declined enormously over the last century, so the number of periods women experience over a life-time has increased. And that has led to all kinds of problems, some of which might have a fairly simple solution.
