Menstruation is a silent spectacle. For every woman half of her lifetime, every month or even more often. What currently attacts media attention is its ambivalence: shame and normality. Bleeding every month is the most common thing in the world. 

Ignoring is not an option.

In 2019, 56 million girls

aged 9-13 experienced menstruation for

the first time.

Sadly, most had negative experiences affecting their physical and emotional development. Worse still, girls committed suicide from bullying by peers, parents and teachers’ ignorance and the taboo around menstruation.

How can we improve the experience of the first menstrual period?

The support does not belong neither to the negative nor the positive side supporting with erroneous or taboo information can be even worse than having no information at all, it generates confusion and can lead to making bad decisions aggravating the experience, but with the right guide, support can be the best tool given to the girl in order to understand and embrase this new stage of her life.
