Meet Taq Kaur Bhandal.


Hi I’m Taqdir (Taq) Kaur Bhandal ਤਕਦੀਰ ਕੌਰ ਭੰਡਾਲ, the founder of IM With Periods. I teach Kaurs and folx to track the 4 seasons of menstrual cycles.

I’m also the author of the forthcoming book Self-Care Down There: An All Genders Guide to Vaginal Wellbeing

Our instagram account @imwithperiods shares knowledge on tracking periods & cycles for all menstruators, and info about menopause.

Currently doing my PhD at the UBC Social Justice Institute, I’ve been a huge biology, sustainability, and social equity nerd for my whole life. 

You can find me reading romantic sci-fi novels most evenings after a slow cooked dinner, and I once thought I wanted to be an obgyn. I live in Vancouver, Canada on Coast Salish territory and my ancestors are from the Punjab region of South Asia. 

I came off of the birth control pill in December 2017 after 7 years, when I started to notice negative health effects. I have been spreading and hearing stories of periods ever since.

If you are interested in connecting, reach out to me at or DM me on Instagram or Facebook.
