🥀 Talking about periods has often been a taboo subject that makes people feel embarrassed or even shamful. For some girls, their first period is a nightmare. They may never have had someone explain to them what menstruation is and how their bodies will change during puberty. Some girls even think they are dying when they see their own menstrual blood for the first time. Around the world, period taboos and resource limitations prevent girls from managing their periods with dignity.
