As a retired NYC Police Sergeant who was injured on the job, Carey never used her menstrual cycle as an excuse to miss work or as a reason to leave a task undone. She is one of five sisters and has a teenage daughter whom she is currently educating about the myths of PMS and all that is means when it’s that Time Of The Month!

For Carey and millions of women like her who have had ovarian cysts, surgery to remove cancerous cells from her cervix, and over 300 menstrual cycles from regular to irregular periods, knowing the signs and what triggers certain symptoms for such a consistent occurrence in their lives would be helpful.

Valarie Carey currently lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn with her teenaged daughter Shelby, lifetime partner Schmoll Reaves-Bey and her cat Seven.
