With International Women’s Day around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to enclosed one of the important women health-related topics: Menstrual cycle. It’s always known as a taboo topic and most of the girls would be ashamed to talk about it. As 2020’s theme for IWD: #EachforEqual, it’s time for a new revolution, where menstrual health is protected and end these discriminatory practices.
Keeping track of your menstruation could help you with family planning and pregnancy prevention in the future. When your doctor asks you for the first day of your last period,
‘are you someone who can tick the date off without thinking?’
‘are you like most women who stare blankly at the doctor’s calendar, guesstimating the date?’
If you’re in the second group, you probably aren’t tracking your menstrual cycles on a regular basis. But keeping a menstrual calendar can be helpful for most women, even those who are not thinking about pregnancy.
