Myths About Periods


Talking openly about periods is still a taboo in many societies. There is a lack of awareness and information about it. So, these myths continue to live on and are not questioned from one generation to another.

Have a look at some of the myths and facts behind them : 




FACT Menstrual outcome is just a harmless mixture of blood and tissue that was not used by your body to nourish a baby in the Womb. It's natural and very normal. This myth is often used to stop women from taking part in various religious events.


FACT : I feel this started when women used to take bath in open like in rivers or ponds. But now when most of us take bath in private bathrooms there is no place for such myth. Rather, it is a good idea to take a bath or a shower daily for a hygienic and clean body.


FACT: There is no fix formula to calculate when the ovulation will happen. Sometimes it  may occur before your period is over and sometimes it happens soon after. And in both cases, if there are sperms in the vagina, it is possible that the egg released during ovulation is fertilized making you pregnant.


FACT : For a healthy woman, menstruation doesn't cause any blood deficiency. Normally the blood loss during a period in healthy women is not more than 80ml (around 4 table spoons). If anyone notices more than this amount of blood loss, she should consult the doctor. 



FACT I can assure you, nothing happens when you touch pickles. They do not get spoiled. Rather, we can avoid eating pickles during periods. During periods, most of the women experience uncomfortable bloating. If they eat pickles during this time, their condition can get worse. 


FACTThat is only an average. Days in the menstrual cycle can vary from woman to woman. Your body will tell you what your cycle is, not other people.
