This time last year, we started a conversation about the problem of missed birth control pills. We told you how, out of the 10 million people on the pill in the United States, 80% of them miss at least one pill per month, leading to one million unplanned pregnancies every year.
We also told you that nearly 50% of people who stop taking the pill do so because of negative symptoms and side effects. (Yep, been there.)
Then, we told you how the Emme Smart Birth Control System was designed to change all that.
In the past year, we've helped thousands of pill-takers reduce their anxiety, build their confidence, and stay on top of their routines. (You should get in on that.)
Whether you're enjoying automatic pill-tracking with the Emme Smart Case, getting to know your body better with the Emme app, or getting birth control pills delivered quickly and easily with EmmeRx, Emme is #PoweredByYou.
From August 25-31, 2021, we're donating 10% of our sales to PERIOD, a youth-fueled nonprofit striving to eradicate period poverty and stigma through service, education, and advocacy.
Through the distribution of menstrual products, promotion of youth leadership, and championing of menstrual equity in policy, PERIOD aims to center those disproportionately affected by period poverty and support local efforts for menstrual equity.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being an Emme member, for supporting the future of menstrual health, and for believing that there is always a better way.
