Menstruation has traditionally been considered a taboo, leading to inhumane practices and life-threatening consequences for women's health. Most girls use rag cloth as a sanitary pad, which causes fungal and bacterial infection. These women are particularly vulnerable to pathological leucorrhea and cervical cancer. According to our fieldwork and research, society's patriarchal mindset, inequality, and high illiteracy rate are accountable for poor menstrual practices among vulnerable women. It has resulted in significant gaps in the development of women.

In poverty-stricken families, women have resorted to the unhygienic traditional methods of menstrual practices as their funds are prioritized to meet other needs such as food or essentials.
