Since time immemorial the idea of a patriarchal concept that women’s body and sexuality should not be debated publicly has been taboo to human health and cleanliness. The female body is thought to symbolize the “honor” of a community since “lining” and “identity” remain alive through their reproductive functions. Over the years, women have been taught that they have children’s bodies and that women’s sexuality is controlled by a bigger society. This assumption culminated in practices in which women are ashamed to tell their family and partners about menstrual hygiene and reproductive health (husbands). Menstrual blood is depicted by society as dirty and ‘impure’ and further implies women’s belief in very erroneous corps and physical functions.

The determination of these cultural ideas, mirrored in common practice, is the key role of religion in India. There are countless folklore people, who represent menses as something to be feared in the Hindu faith, followed by a majority of the population, while women are cuddly demon-like bodies. All of these convictions and practices often originate in a particular culture of religious observance and ignorance of current science education. Women and girls are so restricted and traumatized by menstrual builds that more than 23% of females leave school when they start menstruation. Most females falling away from the community are vulnerable.

Even schools are poorly supported physically and medically and emotionally by young girls and they create a healthy environment in which to develop. In addition, the economic realities of most households in India significantly contribute to the fate of menstrual hygiene for women. About 77% of women utilize soiled rags and clothes during their time in the nation. In addition, because of extreme poverty, numerous women even use ash, sand, sheets, and papers. There is, therefore, a deplorable state of affairs for most women in menstrual hygiene. This is the taboo and stigma of the reproductive and menstrual blood system of women. The country most needs a holistic, inclusive, and changing approach to primary socialization right from the start of children’s education as a society. We need to teach our children the sexuality, body, and values of equal treatment that eschew all kinds of gender prejudices. In addition, the readily available cheap sanitation goods and the participation of society in revolutionizing and reforming the faulty concept of women’s bodies is another critical demand of the hour.
