The Fifth Vital Sign says
The Fifth Vital Sign is a travelling project offering free classes on:

• menstrual cycle awareness and charting
• hormonal and non-hormonal birth control
• menstrual care products
• breast awareness
• how to discuss options with your health care provider

This class is applicable and important for everyone from adolescents to adults. We consider the menstrual cycle to be a vital sign, as important as blood pressure or pulse in telling you how your body is doing.

Our hope is that by better understanding the menstrual cycle and viewing it as an indicator of health, people will:
• feel more secure, safe, and connected to their bodies, especially during times of transition, like pregnancy and menopause, and during illness
• be able to come to their healthcare providers with more detailed information about their bodies, and more specific questions to contribute to their care
• make birth control decisions with self awareness
• dissipate the culture of shame and embarrassment around menstruation, especially for people during their first period, or menarche
