Recently Madhya Pradesh Government has declared 28 May as Menstrual Hygeine day and started their pilot project 'Udita' to raise awareness about safe and healthy menstrual hygeine movement along with fighting the taboos associated with menstruation among the society.
Menstruation in Indian society has been associated with lot of taboos, myths and misconceptions. A female undergoing those vital changes in her body during those initial years is not given proper chance and education to learn about the developments in her body and how to take care of it. Rather the associated taboo and misconceptions makes it a bad, painful and humiliating experience for a girl. What all is at stake first is, the health of the girl due to lack of education on related hygeine. More than 88% women are vulnerable to vaginal and other infections for not using proper hygiene methods.
I could even find several girls in urban and rural areas where girls and even married women lack sufficient information about sanitary and menstrual hygiene. So todays post is an effort to inform and educate all my readers who are aware and can help make others aware too. Some tips on how we can maintain Intimate hygeine regularly and during those period days too.
1. Body wash with Antiseptic Liquid-
Train your younger sisters and girls and if you are a mother to a girl, tell her to use Antispetic liquid frequently in their bath. Atleast twice a week where they just put a liquid like Dettol in bath for proper cleaning and killing germs. While home remedies like boiling Neem leaves and bathing with the water coud be tedious and not possible frequently so Antispetic liquid is a safe and easy option.
