Creating a Period-Friendly World this Menstrual Hygiene Day

Welcome to the world where blood when it comes out of a woman’s pants is not shameful but rather a symbol of a woman’s cycle. In the upcoming Menstrual Hygiene Day on the 28th of May, let us work towards building a Period Friendly World.

Periods are common and women can freely talk about them without fear of being mocked or silenced. Period products are being considered as a basic human right hence provision of safe and quality products is supposed to be expected rather than an entitlement. It is accompanied by education on the topic of menstruation, where myths and misinterpretations are nearly non-existent.

As we celebrate Menstrual Hygiene Day, it’s essential to ask ourselves thought-provoking questions:

Question: What are some general practices related to menstruation?

Answer: The key behaviors about menstrual hygiene include Þat, changing sanitary wear for at least every 4-6 hours; washing genitalia with clean water; disposing of the worn sanitary wear properly; and general hygiene during menstruation.

Top Tips for Self-Care During Menstruation

It’s that time of the month again, and while this condition does not sound the most enjoyable, it is still essential to practice self-care. World Menstrual Hygiene Day urges people who menstruate to spend some moments on their health through this process.

Take Time to Relax

You go through the menstrual period which causes hormonal shifts that may lead to nervousness or even irritation. Carve out me-time by taking part in soothing activities such as yoga, and meditation, or by reading a good book. Nothing could be more effective than a warm bath when it comes to relieving menstrual cramps and drifting off into a relaxing sleep.

Manage the Pain Well

Not all pains from menstrual aches are chronic. In such cases, take over-the-counter drugs which contain ibuprofen to ease the pain or the cramps. Apply hot bathing suits to relieve lower abdominal or back pain in a jiffy. Above all, if the period leads to severe pain, consult your physician about the potential medication alternatives available to you.

Maintain Good Hygiene

Indulge! Gain the pleasure of using the best, quality products that you trust; it could be pads, tampons, menstrual cups, or period underwear. It is also preferable to remove your contact lenses every night so you can protect your eyes from infection. Daily soap and water baths will see you through your period. Indirectly, these practices will boost your mood and relieve symptoms like bloating.

Eat Foods That Will “Feed” You.

What you take in during your menstrual period is also highly important. Shift towards nutrition-oriented food sources like kale, beans, and soya which have iron, vitamin D, and magnesium in them. Do not eat foods that contain sugar, salt, and caffeine that have been found to worsen the symptoms. Stay well-hydrated all the time by increasing your water intake.

Taking good care of you’re health is very important when you’re on your periods and it will help you to feel better each month. Don’t put aside your pain – you deserve compassion and comfort more than ever at the moment. Commit yourself to the self-care methods that are essential to my emotional wellness throughout the cycle.

Take a Warm Bath

A warm bath is your best ally at times like this because it treats cramps and pain. Use a couple of lavender essential oils because they will help you wind down. The soothing heat of the water with the massage oils will guarantee the relaxation of your mind and muscles.

Massage Your Lower Abdomen

Perhaps, the functional role of the lower abdomen massage is to reduce a typical abdominal cramp by increasing blood flow in the area. Utilize the essential oils that are warming while applying smooth but pressing force.

Use a Heating Pad

If not getting into a hot bath suits you better, an abdominal heating pad can also cause a similar effect. The endothermic reaction causes the hot air to constrict your muscles and relieve cramping stresses.

To obtain relief from cramping: attend a yoga class.

Gently yoga poses can relieve yourself of the discomfort caused by your periods. Downward-facing dogs, cat-cow, and bridge are some signs that take the ceases. Yoga works in a similar way that promotes the release of hormones that can make you feel better physically as well.

Indulge in Comfort Foods

That is the prettiest thing in the world, but during your period, you have a legitimate reason to stock up on your favorite comfort foods. Deal with yourself with chocolate, a cup of tea, or any other items that make you get better. You deserve it!

Taking proper care of yourself during your period will make you feel a lot less stressed out and will help you be more at ease. Incorporate the foods your body craves into your daily diet so you’ll always feel like going through with your routine when feeling your best. By re-investing a portion of your paycheck every month, you will both have a healthier financial future and a happier present.

Pamper Your Mind

Your periods are already experienced as particularly stressful, let alone when you feel guilty to be not apologetic and go on and take some time out for yourself. Treat yourself with relaxation – you have worked hard for it.

Do something you like!

Fold yourself on a couch with decent literature or your favorite film. Take a walk in the fresh air, meanwhile listening to some nice music. Do some light yoga. Call a companion and talk to him/her for about one hour or so. A humorous activity can take your mind off of any trouble you might be having and put you in an improved mood.

Take time off when you need it

Don’t be under the pressure of dragging yourself through your daily routine when the feeling is not up to the task. In the situation when cramps or fatigue disturbs your concentration, maybe you can have a day off or work at home. Please make your well-being and comfort the primary focus in the recent period.

Don’t feel sorry for yourself about indulging in.

You alone know how to alleviate your pain and the best ways to do so go ahead and do whatever will bring back your happiness, which could be a warm bath, a nap, ordering your favorite takeout or just lounging around in your pajamas the whole day. This time from your periods is meant for you to be gentle with yourself, and not to force yourself into anything.

When you practice self-care, you make your period more manageable month by month regardless of the severity of your endometriosis. Although it can be perfectly natural for you to see some hormonal and body highs and lows, this does not signify a cause in which you have to experience lots of discomfort or gloominess.

Give your body and mind enough of the natural ingredients they need to feel strong and healthy once more. Not worrying about fitting into your daily routine as you make recovery, so now try to give all your energy to rest and refreshment. You are not supposed to be generous with yourself, rather choose loving!

Let’s collectively imagine a world in which every man understands the importance of menstruation and appreciates women during this time of the month. It is time to change history and force change, making periods not be seen as shameful and secret but as being proud to be healthy women.

To achieve our goal of making every woman and girl feel safe and comfortable during menstruation, let us make the world period-friendly for all. It is high time to bring change around the world; it is time to encourage the acceptance of menstruation as some strength and regularity of life and not as of-ridden womanhood ‘shame.

Gender stereotype!!! Now it’s time to raise our voices and make the world understand that menstruation is not a taboo but a natural biological process.
