Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021
What is Menstruation? A regular discharge of blood and mucosal tissue from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina or in simple language flow of blood through the vagina monthly for 5-7 days. Menstruation or what we commonly call periods are the regular, natural change that occurs in the female reproductive system that makes pregnancy possible. Now the question is why do we need a day dedicated to menstrual hygiene? Menstrual hygiene day commemorated on 28th May every year is to raise awareness among people who menstruate about their hygiene during these days. It is celebrated so that people worldwide could talk about their difficulties without any hesitations and menstruate safely and with dignity. Menstruation hygiene day is the day when everyone from all over comes forward and shares their knowledge about menstrual hygiene, but it's not limited to that, movements and campaigns in past years have brought a revolution in many countries. There have been many changes in laws and even some new ones are included in various countries for the betterment of menstrual hygiene. We need to talk about this to break taboos and ensure a better and safe future for young children because if we don't talk about it, even people who won't know about it and will suffer. "Menstruation is something without which there'd be no human existence."
