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.
Due to better nutrition, girls now attain menarche at the age of 11 years. Therefore, mothers should disseminate some basic knowledge to their girl child around this age.
