Summary of the Event:

The stigma around discussion of menstruation has resulted in a lack of information being shared between generations. To educate young girls and women about the need for clean and dry menstrual hygiene and to provide accurate understanding of reproductive health, School of Biosciences, Institute of Management studies, Ghaziabad in association with Ghaziabad Obstetrics & Gynecological Society and Beautiful Tomorrow Trust, organized Wellness Talk series on - ‘Green Menstruation: Women Empowerment in Health Perspective’ on 28 May 2021. On the occasion of Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021 it is important to fill critical gaps in our knowledge about menstruation, there is a wealth of practical experience that has not yet been documented and synthesized. The session started with a welcome note by Dr. AbhaVashistha, Program Chairperson, School of Biosciences, wherein she highlighted the importance to break the culture of silence and taboos surrounding menstruation. Senior Consultant Gynecologists, Dr.Neelu Khaneja, Dr. Madhu Gupta and Dr. Shalini Agrawal were the eminent panellists for the talk. They discussed about the symptoms and problems related to menstruation, pros and cons of different sanitary products available in market and various medical conditions related such as Anaemia, menstrual cramps, toxic shock syndrome, pre-menstrual syndrome, PCOD, etc. They helped students to gain better understanding of the menstrual patterns of adolescent girls and the ability to differentiate between normal and abnormal menstruation. The doctors suggested use of more environmentally friendly options such as reusable menstrual cups as well as reusable and/or biodegradable pads, since sanitary products such as tampons and pads often contain plastics and chemicals that are bad for the environment. Honorable Director, Dr. Sapna Rakesh, who conceived the idea of this talk series extended a note of gratitude to the dignitaries for insightful session.
