In India, the knowledge about menstruation and menstrual hygiene is neglected in schools because of which many girls are not prepared for menarche. When they grow up, many continue to use unsanitary methods to manage their periods due to limited knowledge, improper education, and it being a topic of taboo and shame. We wanted to educate these women about menstruation and menstrual hygiene management through a focus on menstrual cups, so that we can break the cages these women are immured in and empower them.
Menstrual cups are a remarkable menstrual management technique that lasts for 8-10 years while storing blood for more than 12 hours. It is made of medical grade silicon and therefore, it is hypoallergenic. It does not cause any kind of itching, rashes, pain or bacterial infections. which is a very common problem of various other alternatives. Menstrual cups are a symbol of freedom and expression for all women.
