Rural girls and women lack period education due to which the Menstruation Cycle or Period is termed as ‘impure’ in Rural India. Women and girls feel shy and awkward talking about periods; as there are various stigmas and taboos associated with the Menstruation Cycle. Additionally, there are various myths related to the menstruation cycle, and those have to be followed by every woman.
As there are various social stigmas and taboos related to the menstruation cycle; women in rural areas won’t feel comfortable discussing various issues related to periods. These hidden period issues can further lead to multiple menstrual disorders; and for adolescent girls, it might additionally affect maternal health. Due to a lack of period education, girls and women are unaware of commercial period products such as Sanitary Napkins, Menstrual cups, and Tampons. They are also clueless about the importance of maintaining Menstrual Hygiene and Menstrual Waste Management.
Women and girls in rural areas use sandbags, old pieces of cloth, leaves, and ashes instead of commercial sanitary napkins to avoid period stains during menstruation. It increases the chances of getting Reproductive Tract Infections (RTIs) and other Menstrual Disorders. One can install Sanitary Napkin Vending Machine to access sanitary napkins for rural women easily. Women in rural areas also face the problem of the disposal of used menstrual products. They either dig the products in the sand or burn them. Burning the used menstrual products in open areas can cause hazardous diseases; for people living around that area or passing by.
