A catalogue of movies that mention menstruation.

There are over 650,000 movies on IMDB (October 2023), but as few as 380 of them contain dialogue about periods.

People who menstruate make up around 26% of the global population. We bleed monthly for around 40 years of our lives. But menstruation's representation in cinema sits at less than 0.06%.
