Facts about Menstruation | International Women’s Health Day
Females menstruate from age 13 to 47 years in Indian context. Once menarche (first menstruation) establishes, one should always keep a record of her menses with regard to time, duration and amount of bleeding. Over and above, menstrual hygiene is very important.
