Half of Bangladeshi population are women. Women do not reach the health facilities as they should. Women are most affected by the problem, they are related to menstruation. But Bangladesh is a country where women are saved by discussing menstruation. The talk of rural areas is different, educated women and adolescents from urban areas also avoid talking about this subject. The result is that when adolescents and women are suffering from menstrual problems, they do not tell anyone about it until the disease takes the form of big trouble. Menstruation is a biological process in women’s body, so there is no such thing to hide in it. But it is inadvertently banned. The need is that if there is a problem then tell it, because not telling is not the problem, but it affects your health. Several health problems are common due to effects of poor hygiene.
Lack of information
There is a gross lack of information in our society regarding menstrual hygiene management. Leave the talk of rural women, urban women also have information regarding menstruation is incomplete. Due to which many women are related to menstruation and they are unaware. Such a misconception is that in the meantime women are impure, they are filthy, whereas these things are utterly chatter.
‘Focus on the Face’
After all, why girls from top till the 12th, do not take lead from boys in the race of life?
The use of dirty clothes is the major reason for the disease
It is often seen that women do not use sanitary napkins in menstruation, instead they use cloth. The cloth also happens, which is useless in the house. Due to its use of napkin and its proper sanitation, women become victims of various types of infection. Even today, clothes are washed with water only in rural areas, which is a major cause of infection. Itching of the vagina, secretion of yellow thickness, sometimes secretion of green water is also there. Often time’s women become victims of diseases such as infertility due to frequent infection.
Suffering due to menstruation
Every topic related to women in our country is linked to shame. Menstruation has also been made to hide, whereas everyone knows. Washing and drying clothes used in menstruation are also used to wash and dry, it is dried in the house so that no one can see it, while sunbathing is necessary to eliminate germs in the clothes used during menstruation.
Government efforts are inadequate
Efforts are being made by the government to encourage women to use menstruation and sanitary napkins, but even today, sanitary napkins in the rural areas are not able to get the distribution in the same way as it should be. There is so much poverty in rural areas that people do not want to spend 5-6 rupees on sanitary napkins. Therefore, it is necessary that the government will give free distribution of napkin. As well as conduct an awareness program to eradicate menstruation. An entity like UNICEF, is working in this direction, but it is quite limited. Widespread work has to be done in this direction.
