Menstrual Hygiene Day | Chat with an expert – Tips, hygiene, myths

Period is the beginning of a new phase of life. It is a 5-day journey that every woman goes through naturally, every single month. Yet, till today, menstrual hygiene remains a taboo, a commodity exchanged wrapped in newspapers, something to be ‘hush’ about, something that’s impure. A completely natural phenomena like menstruation is not openly discussed due to all these reasons.
