Here are 11 menstrual hygiene tips that every woman should follow


Many of us still lack adequate information about menstrual hygiene, and failure to observe hygiene during menstruation can lead to bacterial and fungal infections. Repeated infections can lead to serious reproductive tract infections, which can sometimes lead to infertility. Small town women still wear reusable unsanitary clothing during their time.

11. Change the bandages or tampons regularly to avoid infection. It is recommended to change the sanitary napkin every six hours, for tampons every two hours.

10. Choose good sanitary napkins: women with sensitive skin can avoid plastic-coated sanitary napkins, as rubbing their skin can cause rashes, itching, and blisters.

9. Wear clean underwear and change them every day.

 8. Shower or bathe at least once a day.

7. Washing the vagina with an intimate cleanser can kill good bacteria and leave room for infection.

6. This is important because cleaning in the opposite direction can get bacteria from the anus to the vagina and urethral opening, leading to infection. Make sure you wash your hands with soap and warm water after changing your tampon/tampon / menstrual cup.

5. Do not use soaps or vaginal hygiene products to wash the genital area. Instead, regularly clean the vaginal area with warm water, after each use of the toilet and even after urinating.

4. Dry the vaginal area after each wash, otherwise, it may cause irritation. Also, keep the area between your legs dry. Use an antiseptic powder to keep the area dry, preferably before using the pillow and after washing the vagina. Always clean or wash the genitals from front to back.

3. Dispose of them properly and throw them in the household waste to prevent the spread of infections.

2. Never throw away used towels and sanitary towels from the toilet as they can clog the pipes and cause the toilet to overflow.

1. Wear loose, comfortable clothing instead of jeans or tights during your period. This ensures air circulation in sensitive areas and largely prevents sweating.
