How to Maintain Menstrual Hygiene

Menstrual hygiene is an essential aspect of women's health and well-being. It is important to maintain proper menstrual hygiene during menstruation to prevent infections, odors, and discomfort. Here are some tips on how to maintain menstrual hygiene. 

  1. Use the right menstrual products: Menstrual products include sanitary pads, tampons, menstrual cups, and period panties. Choose the product that suits your comfort and needs. Change your sanitary pads or tampons every 4 to 6 hours, and empty your menstrual cup at least twice a day. Do not use menstrual products for more than 8 hours. 
  2. Wash your hands: Before and after changing your menstrual products, wash your hands with soap and water. This helps to prevent the spread of bacteria and infection. 
  3. Keep yourself clean: During menstruation, you should clean your genitals with water or water and intimate wash at least twice a day. Avoid using scented soaps, lotions, or sprays as they may cause irritation and discomfort. 
  4. Use a clean and dry menstrual pad: It is important to change your menstrual pad frequently to avoid the accumulation of bacteria and odor. Use a clean and dry menstrual pad every time you change your pad. 
  5. Maintain proper disposal: Dispose of your used sanitary pads, tampons, or menstrual cups properly. Wrap them in a paper or plastic bag and dispose of them in a trash can. Do not flush them down the toilet as they may cause blockages. 
  6. Wear comfortable clothes: Wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothes during menstruation. Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes that may cause friction and discomfort. 
  7. Maintain a healthy diet: A healthy diet is important during menstruation as it helps to prevent constipation and other digestive problems. Eat a diet rich in fiber, fruits, and vegetables. Avoid consuming too much salt, caffeine, and sugar.
