Sanitary Pads or Napkins and Menstrual Cups Review

There are many so things in our life that we do day to day life, but we don’t talk about those things, either we are ashamed of or we talk very secretly.

Among that, one thing is the menstrual period of women. Women have menstruation or periods every month but in our society women do not talk about this.

Even if a girl has menstruation, her mother secretly takes her in private and explains that menstruation is something that we do not have to tell anyone, this is not a good thing.

Mother also tells us that the father or brother should not know about your menstruation or periods, even if there is a stomach ache, no one should know that you are having a stomachache.

I was taught and told the same thing by my mother.

But now the time is changing, we need to talk openly about this to our children and tell them that if they have any problem, then they should speak openly or tell them.

Whether they tell their mother or their father, and the man of the house also needs to keep the home environment open so that your children can discuss anything without hesitation with you.

Many people consider menstruation as an incurable disease, there is a need to spread awareness about menstruation or periods. That this is not a disease, this is as common as you breathe.

During menstruation, few women or girls face abdominal pain, few have pain in the waist, few feel pain in the whole body and few women or girls have no pain or problem at all.

First, we try to know what is menstruation/ periods cycle

Every month a developed ovum (egg) starts to develop in the ovary of a girl aged 10 to 15 years.

The egg goes down through the endocrine tube (fallopian tube) that connects the ovary to the uterus. When the egg reaches the uterus, its lining becomes thick with blood and fluid.

This is so that if the egg is fertilized, it can grow and develop in its level for the birth of the baby.

If the egg is not inserted into the male’s sperm, it becomes a secretion that is expelled from the vagina.

This secretion is called menstruation, periods or (Menstrual Cycle or MC).

Menstruation or period cycle occurs once a month, its normal time is once in 28 – 32 days. Sometimes the time may be more or less due to any hormonal change, but if you feel that menstruation is coming too early or too late every month, then consult with a doctor.

Menstrual cycles are dynamic. They can vary for many reasons and in many ways. The length of your cycle, the heaviness of your period, and the symptoms you experience can all fluctuate. These variations are usually normal and healthy.

Irregular menstrual cycles are common in young people who have just started to have periods. People tend to have shorter or sometimes longer menstrual cycles during puberty, which may lead to them having two periods in 1 month.

It’s normal for adult women to have a menstrual cycle that ranges from 24 to 38 days, and for teenage girls to have a cycle that lasts 38 days or longer. But every woman is different, and each person’s cycle can vary from month to month.

During some months, your cycle may last for more or fewer days than the previous month, or it may start earlier or later than it has before. Sometimes, you may even have two periods in a single month.

As I told you, someone has a lot of pain during menstruation such as the stomach, back pain or abdominal cramps.

If you are having a lot of pain during menstruation, you can also use a lot of home remedies.

Take hot fomentation with warm water, drink lukewarm water. Apply little warm oil on the stomach and massage with a light hand.

Women still use clothes in menstruation or periods. Using cloth is not only unhygienic, but it is also very harmful to health. Nowadays a little awareness has increased, women have started using sanitary pads or napkins, but even today, in villages, women mostly use cloth.

Life or Durability

Sanitary Napkins or Pads

If it is the first day of your menstrual period, then at least 3 to 4 sanitary napkins or pads will be used, if the blood flow is more, then more sanitary napkins or pads will be installed.

If your menstruation lasts 4 to 5 days, then at least 14 to 15 sanitary napkins or pads will be installed, or even more sanitary napkins or pads may be used.

Menstrual Cup

We use only one menstrual cup. Because there is a big advantage in the menstrual cup that you can use a single menstrual cup at least 4 to 5 years.

Cost

Sanitary Napkins or Pads

A sanitary napkin or pad costs around 7 to 8 rupees. If we use 15 sanitary napkins or pads in one month, then it will cost about 120 rupees for a one-time menstrual cycle, this price can be higher because now GST on sanitary napkins or pads has been increased to 28%.

And if we calculate for 5 years, then for 5 years, the cost of sanitary napkins or pads will be around 5 x 12 x 120 i.e. about 7200 rupees, this price can also be higher because inflation will increase day by day.

Using sanitary napkins is not much relaxing, and the brain keeps on thinking about how much blood is flowing and it feels to go to the washroom again and again.
