It’s important that we break the shell and start talking about menstruation in open to promote womens health and wellbeing. People are gradually becoming more vocal about menstruation in India. Women realize the importance of good menstrual hygiene practices and how it directly impacts ones health and way of life. Menstruation is a natural process and it’s essential that we talk about it openly to create awareness about the right menstrual hygiene practices in young girls and women. Information and awareness can help empower girls to take charge of their lives and recognize menstruation as a gift and not an obstacle or problem. Some key practices that will ensure that you have a healthy and happy period are: 1. Sanitary Napkins or Tampons - Choose what’s best for you There are a number of sanitary products available in the market today like sanitary pads tampons etc. Check all the available options and use the products that you find most comfortable and safe. Most sanitary napkins brands share all product information on their website. Read it well and also discuss experiences with friends. Each brand is distinct so try out a few options and then decide on the one that you find the best. Especially girls with sensitive skin should be more mindful and choose fragrance-free products that are gentle on the skin. 2. Changing pads or tampons Wearing a napkin for a long time exposes you to infections and rashes so change your sanitary napkin frequently. On heavy flow days you will need to change the napkin more frequently than on the light days. Ideally napkins should be changed every 3-4 hours and even the best sanitary pads brands should not be used for more than 6 hours. Tampons too should be changed every 4-8 hours. When using tampons match the tampon absorbency to your menstrual flow. For example if you have a normal flow do no go for high absorbency tampon select normal. This is vital to avoid Toxic Shock Syndrome. There are Light Normal and Super Tampons as per their absorbency level pick the right kind that matches to your menstrual flow.
