    Menstrual Hygiene For Underprivileged Women

    from New Delhi, Delhi

Story

Menstruation and menstrual practices still face many social, cultural, and religious restrictions which are a big barrier in the path of the menstrual hygiene management.
Menstrual beliefs, knowledge, and practices were all interrelated to menstrual hygiene management.
Many women experience restrictions on cooking work activities, sexual intercourse, bathing, worshipping, and eating certain foods. These restrictions were due to the overall perception of the people regarding menstruation as they consider it dirty and polluting.
Even touching menstruating women were considered toxic; they were prohibited from cooking and from taking certain foods like pickles. These prohibitions are more in rural areas than in n areas. They were also not allowed to participate in religious activities or to contact religious articles. Due to cultural expectations and restrictions, many girls were not adequately informed about the realities of menstruation. As a result, they feel subnormal, diseased, or traumatized. Unprepared girls were frightened, confused, and feel embarrassed by menarche.
To avoid this it is necessary to educate both men and women, both men and women should know about menstrual hygiene.

If we want our country's women to prosper our first step should be to educate our society.

They need to understand that this is natural nothing bad in it.
How can women maintain their menstrual hygiene?

• Women should wear pads instead of cloth.
• Sanitary pads should be changed at regular
intervals (every four hours).
• They should bathe daily.
• Women should wash their pubic area with water.
• They should not use soap while washing their pelvic area, as it affects the Ph level.
• Pads should be disposed of properly.
• Use clean Undergarments.
• Eat well: have a balanced and nutritious diet.
Break the silence and build awareness about the importance of menstrual hygiene enabling women and girls to lead disease and infection-free life especially during their periods. Self-care is imperative during periods and otherwise too.
