What is Menstruation?
Menstruation or period, is normal vaginal bleeding that occurs as a part of a woman’s monthly cycle. Every month body prepares for pregnancy. If pregnancy doesn’t occur, the uterus or womb shed its lining.
History and Evaluation of Menstruation Products-
Menstruation which is also called as Periods. Periods was not easy for woman in past as compare to now. Nowadays pads, tampons, environmental friendly cups and super absorbent panties are savior during the toughest days of their menstruation.
Let’s go back into the history and see how the evaluation of menstruation products took place in the society.
Earlier in 1850s the first sanitary product was invented which was called Sanitary Apron. Sanitary Apron is a rubber apron with a strip that runs between the legs to prevent blood from getting on women’s skirt and seats. The priority was to save furniture and skirts from stain but not their health & hygiene. Sanitary Apron was very uncomfortable and stinky because of which it failed to sustain in market.
In 1896 the first pad hit the market but menstruation was a huge taboo so women don’t want to be seen purchasing pads and the product ends up as failure.
In 1920 during the time of World War I nurses invented the modern pad made of cellulose, a blend of acrylic cotton used for bandages to soak the menstrual blood. This invention came into picture after the World War I, there was a lot of cellulose left over and this is how the pads were made and the entire nation started using this.
In 1930 first menstrual cup was discovered but it wasn’t a big success. Because of lack of awareness and knowledge people used to avoid to touch anything bloody so because of its application the product didn’t get any success in the market.
In 1931 tampon were introduced which was made of cotton and cardboard. The application was easy which allows women to insert tampons into their vagina without touching vagina or menstrual blood. Even though the application was easy it was meant to use only by married women because people believe that one can lose their virginity by using them.
In 1962 the first beltless napkin with an adhesive strip called as modern pads were introduced which was a game changer and which put an end over menstrual belts.
But in 2000 menstrual cup again came into picture as an environmental safe alternative to pads and tampons. Decades after the conception the menstrual cup is slowly making a comeback and science is backing it’s benefits up.
