Ruby began in a dorm room in 2022, when co-founders Riley and Emily were writing their senior thesis. They spoke to female athletes at all levels, from recreational competitors to collegiate athletes, and even Olympians at the top of their game. Through it all, one thing became clear: women's period symptoms were negatively impacting their training up to 25% of the time, and there were no products built to help. As a Division I tennis player and competitive powerlifter, Emily and Riley knew they had to fix it.
