Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi launched a menstrual hygiene campaign here on Tuesday.
During menstruation, the body sheds the uterine lining along with blood. The amount of blood and fluid lost varies from woman to woman. The average length of time for menstruation is three to five days. Few women have an easy time during their monthly periods. Due to hormonal changes before and during menstruation, women must bear different kinds of problems. Symptoms like mood swings, back pain and abdominal cramps are common.
#YESIBLEED is a social campaign which is not only creating so much awareness about mensuration but also breaking the silly myths around the world like you can worship here, you cannot worship there, Periods are not allowed here, You are impure, You are forced into believing that all these statements are mandatory for your own good, You are enforced into submission in the name of religious belief etc.
