Let’s read some myths and facts related to periods >>
Details of periods or menstruation can make everyone a little shy, so we thought it might be helpful to try to clear a few things up about menstruation.
Remember when we got the infamous talk about sex, hair, odor, and other bodily changes that signaled puberty is coming?

Here are seven myths people need to get straight — as in, forget.
If we stop thinking that periods are gross, shameful, and dirty, then perhaps it wouldn’t be a humanitarian crisis. But the truth is, we have a long history of embarrassment to overcome. It’s so ingrained in our behavior that being put on blast for having our period doesn’t help.

Let’s do our part to change this cycle and ditch the stigma. After all, periods and the balance of hormones are what help us stay young!
