Talking about periods is important because it helps to destigmatize a natural and normal part of a woman’s reproductive health.

Many people, particularly women and girls, may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable discussing their periods, but it’s important to recognize that menstruation is a normal and healthy part of a woman’s life.

Talking about periods can also help to address misinformation and misunderstandings about menstrual health.

For example, some people may not understand how to manage their periods or may have misconceptions about the causes of menstrual cycles.

By discussing periods openly and honestly, we can help to educate others and promote better understanding and acceptance of this important aspect of reproductive health.

In addition, talking about periods can help to raise awareness about issues that affect menstrual health, such as access to affordable menstrual products and the availability of education and resources related to menstrual health.

It can also help to foster a sense of community and support among people who experience periods, as many people may feel more comfortable discussing their experiences and seeking support from others who can relate.
