Menstrual Hygiene Day
is an annual awareness day on May 28 to highlight the importance of good menstrual health management.

It was initiated by the German-based NGO WASH United in 2013 and aims to benefit women and girls worldwide.

It’s a day set aside to sensitize the public about various practices that can help in improving menstrual health.

Menstrual hygiene has to do with using a clean material to absorb blood due to menstruation flow and this material can be changed in private. A lot of young girls do not even know about menstruation until their first period, and because of that, they go out into the public stained, and this can cause stigma.

Parents should talk to their children about menstruation, and also sanitary pads and proper menstrual practices should be taught too. Stigma and improper myths about menstruation should be abolished.

Menstrual health enthusiast, Adidi Iluobe Agnes has talked about these and more in the video above. Please watch, like and share. The links below are to her social media profiles. Do Follow!

  1. Very great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to mention that
    I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I hope you write once more very soon!

  2. Awesome site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about
    here? I’d really love to be a part of group where
    I can get opinions from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Cheers!

  3. Definitely consider that that you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be
    at the web the simplest factor to have in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked even as people consider concerns that they just do not recognize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  4. Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
    let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  5. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
