World Menstrual Hygiene Day 2020: Let's Spread the Awareness

Menstruation is a normal biological process. While pregnancy is celebrated in India, menstruation is still considered as a dark phase.

Still in India, not only in villages but also in cities many females use rags and clothes to manage periods, instead of easily available & much safer sanitary napkins. Proper menstrual hygiene will reduce the rate of genital (private parts) infections, urinary infections & also serious infections like Toxic Shock Syndrome

World Menstrual Hygiene Day

Basic Menstrual hygiene:

  • use of sanitary napkins
  • changing napkins every 4-6 hours
  • washing of external private parts with water and gentle soap.
  • Not only medicos but general people can also make females aware of menstrual hygiene like teachers, mother, sisters.
    So let’s pledge to improve India’s menstrual hygiene.
