Every month, 1.8 billion people across the world menstruate. Millions of these girls and women are unable to manage their menstrual cycle in a dignified, healthy way. Menstrual hygiene is an important part of your daily routine. It helps keep you clean, healthy, and comfortable during your menstrual cycle. To ensure that you’re taking care of your body during this time, here are some tips for how to take care of Menstrual Hygiene during the Menstrual Cycle:
How to take care of Menstrual Hygiene during Menstrual Cycle
Frequently change menstrual hygiene products: You can wear a new sanitary napkin every day or two, depending on what works best for your flow cycle. It’s important to wash your hands with soap and water after using the bathroom. If possible, use a fresh pair of underwear each day as well.
Discard Sanitary Napkin Safely: When it comes time for you to discard your used sanitary napkin, make sure it’s disposed of in an appropriate manner. Once you’ve used one sanitary napkin/tampon, throw it away in the trash or compost pile.
Wear comfortable and light clothing: You’ll feel more confident when wearing clothes that are made from natural fibers like cotton or linen instead of synthetic fabrics such as polyester or nylon. Wool is also great because it wicks away moisture well so that sweat doesn’t build up under your arms or on other parts of your body (like your legs). Wear comfortable and light clothing during menstruation. You don’t want anything heavy on top of your body while dealing with fluid flow from within–this will only make things worse! Wear loose-fitting clothes that don’t hinder movement or cause chafing.
Do not use chemical hygiene products or soaps: These products can cause irritation when applied directly onto sensitive areas such as your inner thighs or around your vaginal opening area. So avoid the use of chemical products.
