Key Messages
  • You should follow hygienic practices during menstruation. Not doing so can result in you getting fungal infections. Repeated infections lead to serious reproductive tract infections and can cause infertility in the long term.

  • You should bathe regularly, use clean and dry feminine hygiene products such as cloth or sanitary napkins and change them regularly during menstruation. If you are using cloth it is important that you regularly wash them with soap and water and dry them completely in the sun before use as damp clothing can carry germs that can lead to infections.

  • The school that your daughter goes to should have separate, safe latrines for girls and boys. The girls' latrine in particular needs access to water and soap so girls can appropriately clean themselves during menstruation and there should also be provisions for girls' sanitary napkins to be disposed of in a refuse pit or collected and burned.
Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 It is important to let our young girls know about these hygienic practices which can help them stay healthy

Key Response: Hygiene is very important during menstruation. Shyness prevents us from letting them know the proper hygiene practices. It is our duty to take care of our girls. If we need more information we should consult the ANM, ASHA or AWW.


 How to keep cloth napkins clean?

Key Response: Do not use a wet or damp cloth. Always wash it with soap and water and dry it well in sunlight.


 Is there anything else we can do to help them during menstruation?

Key Response: Make sure there is a separate toilet for them in school, soap and water to wash themselves with, and provisions for girls' sanitary napkins to be disposed of in a refuse pit or collected and burned. Since there is a loss of blood- girls can be given extra iron rich foods (or iron tablets) at this time to help make up for the loss and prevent anaemia.
