Abstract
Menstruation is a normal occurrence that every female experiences after reaching puberty. Even in the twenty-first century, people consider it taboo and avoid discussing it. There are several social, religious, and cultural barriers in the way of women’s menstrual health since society deems it disgusting and dirty, and no one wants to publicly discuss this significant issue in public. In India, there is no sufficient teaching on these topics, and girls are unaware of any health and hygienic precautions to take during their menstrual period. The right to proper access to menstrual products is a fundamental right of every woman, as it is necessary for women’s life and liberty, as enumerated in Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. However, these menstrual products contain certain chemical contents that are non-biodegradable and have adverse effects on human health and aquatic animals, so on the one hand, it is a matter of fundamental right of women, but on the other hand, such products are afflicting the environment. As a result, the authors of this article will explore the key plights of women in India who are uninformed of menstruation education, conflicts between women’s right to access menstrual products and the public’s interest, and what remedial actions may be made to balance the situation.
