It’s no secret that there is a heavy stigma around periods in India. We’ve all had the experience of buying pads from the neighbourhood pharmacy and having them wrapped with enormous amounts of newspaper! The whole process feels like a very confidential mission.
While it may seem funny for the moment, a deeper dive into this treatment makes you realize how big a taboo a woman’s period is. And sadly, it conditions us to believe that our menstrual function is something to be ashamed of from a young age. This can lead to endless challenges in managing proper menstrual hygiene. Besides, it does not push us to make healthy choices for our bodies.
While talks on normalizing periods have been prevalent, it is still important to have a healthy understanding of periods from a very young age.
A study by the NCBI found that, on average, Indian girls get their first period when they’re around 13 years of age.
We all remember the ‘period talk’ from our moms and how they taught us how to wear a pad. However, these store-bought synthetic pads can be harmful in the long-run, if used incorrectly; causing rashes, discomfort, and in some cases, vaginal infections. (if used constantly)
We hear you! The process may sound frustrating and tedious. We understand that periods can be an uncomfortable experience, especially if you are a teenager learning how your body works.
This is where Lemme Be’s organic teen tampons come in. Our mission is to empower young Indian girls by providing them with organic period management products, and reliable hygiene information. We wish to inspire young adults to make a conscious effort in fighting the battle against period taboos in India.
