The Hygiene Gala: Making Cleanliness the Ultimate Star this Menstrual Hygiene Day!

Why is 28th May an Important Day?

Menstrual Hygiene Day—a day dedicated to period-positivity and spreading awareness about maintaining hygiene during "that time of the month" as well! Why 28th May, you wonder? Well, it's a clever nod to the average menstrual cycle, which is about 28 days for most women. And this year, we're celebrating under the theme "Together for a #PeriodFriendlyWorld." It's all about breaking taboos, promoting education, and creating a supportive environment where periods are no longer hush-hush but openly discussed and understood.

Let's Understand the Period Math!

Alright, let's do some quick math. On average, a woman experiences menstruation every month, typically lasting around 3 to 7 days. That's roughly 450 periods over a lifetime! And let's not forget the rollercoaster ride of emotions during PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome). It's like your hormones throw a party and forget to invite the rest of your body. 

For many women dealing with conditions like PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) or PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), the hormonal dance can be even more intense. PCOS, characterized by hormonal imbalances, can lead to irregular periods, weight gain, and mood swings. On the other hand, PMDD can cause severe mood changes, anxiety, and depression in the days leading up to menstruation.

So, next time someone blames your mood on your period, just smile and say, "Nope, that's just me being fabulous!"

5 Things That Can Happen When Hygiene Isn't a Priority During Your Period

Let's chat about what happens when we don't give our periods the hygiene TLC they deserve:

Hello, Infections: When we slack on hygiene, bacteria can party in all the wrong places, leading to pesky infections like UTIs and discomfort. Keep things fresh by changing pads or tampons regularly.

Skin's Not Loving It: Imagine wearing damp socks all day—that's how our skin feels with old pads or period tampons. It can get irritated and cranky, so opt for comfy, breathable period products.

Eau de Period: Yep, poor hygiene can invite odours to the period care party. Freshen up with regular changes and proper disposal of used products.

Toxic Shock Scare: Though rare, leaving in high-absorbency tampons for too long can trigger a serious condition called Toxic Shock Syndrome. It's like inviting trouble to a small, cramped space—best avoided.

No One Likes Stigma: In some places, talking about periods is still taboo. Poor hygiene can add to the discomfort and isolation. Let's break the silence and make periods a topic we can chat about openly!
