Menstrual health is an integral part of sexual and reproductive health. Women and girls have the right to life cycle knowledge about menstruation.

Puberty provides a window of opportunity to not only teach young adolescent girls and boys about the changes occurring in their bodies, but also about fertility, contraception and other aspects of sexual and reproductive health. It is an avenue for reducing early pregnancy, child marriage and the risk of sexually transmitted infections.

Being prepared for #menstruation can help keep girls in school. Use of improperly cleaned or scavenged cloth or materials such as a newspaper or even grass may cause infections of the reproductive tract, such as bacterial vaginosis or vulvovaginal candidiasis. Anaemia, menorrhagia, endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea etc. are also conditions related to menstruation.

Talk to a healthcare provider about abnormal bleeding, irregular periods, mood swings, irritability and excessive pain or about any other questions that you might have regarding menstruation.
