Menstrual hygiene day is one to normalize menstruation, which all women experience and to raise awareness about menses and the options available during one's period. Disposable sanitary pads have always been introduced as the option of choice for most girls when they begin their periods, which continues as they grow into women.

That's why we've picked out 7 other menstrual options you can choose from the next time you get your period.
