Support Bahawalpur Punjab

Bahawalpur, Punjab – May 2017: “Don’t take a bath, don’t touch or drink cold water, don’t eat spicy food!” these are just some of the many myths adolescent girls in many parts of Pakistan believe to be the normal practice during menstruation. Studies have suggested that girls in Pakistan have very limited knowledge on menstruation and related hygiene practices. Teachers are often reluctant to discuss the subject leaving mothers and elder sisters as the primary source of information for girls. Unfortunately this information is only shared after the girls have had their first period. As a result, most girls start their periods uninformed and unprepared to deal with it.
