Menstrual hygeine

62% of young women in India still using cloth for menstrual hygiene says the NFHS report 2015-2016. A film on menstruation set in rural India won the Oscar in the Documentary Short Subject category at the 91st Academy Awards. In January 2019, there was a report of a  woman and her two sons suffocated to death in Nepal after she was forced to sleep in a windowless shed during her period. The ancient tradition was outlawed in 2005, yet it remains prevalent in Nepal's remote west. The monthly exclusion leaves women at risk of snake bites, attacks by wild animals and rape. Basically, both the survey and the film and the incident in Nepal show how so many taboos around menstruation still exist in many conservative societies.

Sheila had delivered a beautiful baby boy last week. She got discharged forms the hospital the next day and she was back to the hospital this week for a regular checkup.

It is her second week after pregnancy and it has definitely come down and the bleeding is lighter and thinner. This discharge is called Lochia. The Doctor explains to her - Sheila - Whether you delivered your baby vaginally or by cesarean delivery, you can expect some bleeding and vaginal discharge after giving birth. This is because your body continues to shed the blood and tissue that lined your uterus while you were pregnant.
