These 6 myths around menstruation need to be debunked right away

These 6 myths around menstruation need to be debunked right away

Before hopping onto reading the myths around menstruation, we scrolled through some memes. As we were thinking what else could make us laugh more than these memes, the myths made us "chuckle." Just a small expression, we actually went ROFL.

J.K. Rowling made sure that we all fell in love with fiction, and myths of menstruation made sure we fell out of fiction immediately.

But as the #GirlBoss inside us has shattered numerous things, let's bust these myths around menstruation and separate fact from fiction.

Myth #1: Periods are impure and dirty.

Fact: P E R I O D S A R E N A T U R A L & N O R M A L. P E R I O D. This shouldn't be further discussed. Menstruation is a natural biological process and doesn't symbolize impurity. It plays an essential role in reproduction and should be considered a normal part of a woman's life. Let's shatter the stigma and accept this natural cycle.

Myth #2: Women on their periods shouldn't enter kitchens.

Fact:"Women belong to the kitchen." "Women shouldn't enter the kitchen." Take a break, dear. We don't need your opinion. No books of science back such restrictions. Such myths are deeply rooted in outdated culture. Women can participate fully in all aspects of life, regardless of their menstrual cycle.

Myth #3: You shouldn't wash your hair or take a bath during your period.

Fact: Terming us impure and then restricting us from bathing? The math ain't mathing. Washing hair and taking regular baths helps in preventing infection. Hence, myth busted.

Myth #4: Exercise is harmful during periods.

Fact: Is anyone up to training themselves for MMAs? Nobody? Because high-intensity workouts might not be ideal for everyone, but practicing moderate exercise such as stretching, yoga, and morning walks can help relieve period cramps and improve mood.

Myth #5: You can't get pregnant during your period.

Fact: It is possible to become pregnant while on your period, though this is less likely. Sperm can survive in the female reproductive tract for several days, and ovulation may occur unexpectedly. So, even if you are on your period, it is essential to utilize contraception.

Myth #6: All period problems are normal.

Fact: Darling, it's not your average everyday headache that can be cured with paracetamol. While some period discomfort is normal to an extent, severe pain, irregular cycles, and even heavy bleeding should not be ignored. Seek professional help if you keep experiencing unusual symptoms.


It's time to break the taboo surrounding menstruation. By having open talks and refuting these stereotypes, we may help build a more supportive and informed atmosphere for Indian women. Remember that periods are a natural part of life, not something to be embarrassed of or hidden away.
