Know these tips as we celebrate World Menstrual Hygiene Day this May.
Saturday 28 May it’s Menstrual Hygiene Day
Is a day that calls for an end to the stigma, discrimination and exclusion that people face because they menstruate. Each day, approximately 300 million people have their period. And yet, around the world millions of people are still left in the dark about menstrual cycle. People are denied the space to speak about what they need to manage their period safely, and with dignity. This is because of taboos, discrimination, and a lack of education about periods. On top of that, women and girls around the world don’t have access to the facilities or products they need to have a healthy period. Without the right products, information and toilets, people who menstruate are forced to miss school, be confined to their homes, be excluded from decision-making, and put their health at risk.
Join ProHumane Afrique International and many stakeholders as the World celebrates Menstrual Hygiene Day. From Tamale to Greater Accra. See how the day was marked with education, engagement, pad distribution and social media campaigns.

Banjul, Gambia (PANA) - Groups under the banner of Ghana-based Afrique International Wednesday expressed "concern and dismay over the rising cases of violent attacks against women" across West African states.
The Accra-based International rights body, along with the for Street Children and Child Trafficking Studies and Communications, based in the Gambia, and other partners expressed the concern in a statement released as part of commemorations of this year's International Women's Day marked recently.
"Isaac Mensah was recently attacked and stabbed by Daniel Botwe, a 19-year-old motorbike robber in Ghana," the group said in a statement released Wednesday.
"Meanwhile, in Gambia's commercial city of Serre Kunda, three women were violently attacked by robbers who escaped with mobile phones, cash and other belongings of the ladies."
According to the rights groups, the above mentioned incidents in Ghana and The Gambia are just but a few of the many cases of violent strikes by robbers who seem to be on the loose across West African countries. "Therefore, we, the rights groups and allies strongly urge our governments and their security agencies, particularly the police, to step up more efforts and do more towards fighting rising crimes.
"We believe that this ugly and unholy forces need to be checked against and caged forthwith. Such dangerous criminal elements should have no place or space in our modern civilized societies," the statement added.
As such, they reminded governments within the sub-region and beyond of their constitutional responsibilities of ensuring security and safety of all people living in their respective countries.
"Furthermore, we urge governments and their respective security agencies, especially the police, to double up efforts towards arresting the phenomenal menace of robbers.
"We will like to stress that all governments have sublime duty to provide adequate security/safety needs of the people they are supposed to serve. "This, we emphasize, our governments must see as their solemn responsibility and so be responsive to the collective security needs of all classes of people at all times," the statement said.

EU medical watchdog probes link between Pfizer and Moderna's Covid vaccines and irregular periods after thousands of women report menstrual changes after jab. Do you experience that too?
Europe's medicines watchdog today announced it will probe thousands of reports of women suffering menstrual changes after getting Covid vaccines made by Pfizer or Moderna.
The European Medicines Agency's drug safety committee is investigating both cases of heavy bleeding and missed periods following vaccination.
It will look through all the reported incidents in the EU and clinical trial data, as well as review the scientific literature.
The EMA's panel previously investigated the connection between irregular periods and Covid vaccines but could not establish a firm link. It is reopening the case after receiving 'spontaneous reports of menstrual disorders' more recently.
Women around the world have reported an irregular period after getting the mRNA vaccines, with some studies suggesting the issue affects four in 10 women.
But the EU regulator says there is still no reason to believe the jab impacts fertility — a concern which has driven hesitancy among women. Period irregularities can also be triggered by a Covid itself, other medical conditions and tiredness.
So far studies have either pointed to small and short-lived period disruption post-vaccination, or not found a link at all.
More than 50,000 reports of period changes, including late periods, have been logged in the UK alone, triggering a review by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it will investigate whether there is a causal link between Pfizer and Moderna’s Covid vaccines (pictured) and period irregularities, but warned there is no evidence to suggest the jabs affect fertility
The EMA's Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC), which oversees the safety of medicines, is carrying out the assessment.
It will review all available evidence on mRNA vaccines and period changes among women, including reports from vaccinated women, clinical trials and studies.
They will be looking into whether the jabs triggered heavy periods — bleeding that affect a person's quality of life — or temporarily stopped periods — medically known as amenorrhea, when a woman does not have a period for three months or more.
The UK's MHRA is already investigating reports of period problems, as well as unexpected vaginal bleeding, post-vaccination.
Two MHRA sub-committees — the Vaccines Benefit Risk Expert Working Group and the Medicines for Women's Health Expert Advisory Group — are also investigating the evidence around the claims.
From Data examined so far, up to February 2, the watchdog had received 50,060 reports of menstrual disorders after getting a Covid jab.
Nearly 72million Covid vaccines had been given to women by then.
The MHRA said most reported irregularities have been short-lived and there is no evidence the jabs affect fertility.
It notes that period problems are 'extremely common' and usually stress-triggered, but those who have had Covid and those suffering from long Covid have also reported menstruation disruption.
A study of more than 4,000 women in the US found periods lasted 15 hours longer in women who had a first dose and 19 hours longer among double-jabbed.
But the Oregon Health and Science University scientists leading the study said the changes were 'small' and 'temporary'.
And an Imperial College London study of 1,200 women revealed no definitive link between period changes among vaccinated women.
But researchers noted that those taking the contraceptive pill were more likely to experience period changes compared to those not taking it.
The length of the menstrual cycle varies between individual women, but the average is every 28 days.
However, cycles as short as 21 days or as long as 40 are not considered unusual.
The NHS advises women to contact their GP if their periods are irregular in certain situations.
These include: if their periods suddenly become irregular and they are under 45-years-of-age, their periods come more often than every 21 days and less often than every 35 days, their period lasts longer than seven days, and there is a difference of at least 20 days between the shortest and longest menstrual cycle.
Irregular periods can also lead to problems when women are trying to get pregnant as it becomes difficult to accurately track ovulation, the time when they are most likely to conceive.
Side effects reported by expectant mothers are similar to those seen among non-pregnant women. Real-world data does, however, show mothers-to-be face a greater risk from Covid, especially if they get infected in their third trimester or have underlying health conditions.
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists warn pregnant women are slightly more likely to give birth prematurely or suffer a stillbirth if they catch Covid.
