Mensuration is the hormonal changes that takes place in the development of a girl child.
Menstral hygiene management is an essential aspect of hygiene for women and girls between menarche and menopause. Dispite being an important issue concerning women and girls in the menstruating age group MHM is often overlooked in post disaster responses.
Further there is limited evidence of menstral management.
Some of these hormones changes as from the ages of 10years upwards and highest statistics shows that many of these girls do not know how to take care of themselves.
How do we help these girls to know how to maintain hygiene and sanitation during this period?
Enhance education and provide needs especially for the teenage girls.
Manage their circle without embarrassment and frustration.
Support them to access sanitary towels and how to use them.
Ensure necessary facilities for proper management of menstral hygiene (using warm or hot water, clean washroom and safe disposal points).
Watch out and ensure that girls and women with complications seek and get necessary medical attention to limit infection.
Without these follow up, these women will suffer from the following:-
Friction because because they don't put on pads.
STI's because many people use one pit toilet and no disinfectant.
Odor; because they don't know how to wash their pants well and most of them have atmost 2-3 pants to use.
They can't afford the basic needs which are necessary for life.
