Period Shame

By Esther Chineye Mbabie

Statistics show that about 58% of girls and women experience period shame and different factors are responsible for this.

Some women talk about why they feel ashamed and how they have overcome this shame over the years.

1) I used to be ashamed whenever I got stained but not anymore.

“Na stain I stain I no kill person”

2)My first period, I was ashamed. I told my mom, she called me aside and started asking me, if anyone had touched me. I started developing the puberty features quite early and she was not expecting it that early.

Even up till now, if my bed gets stained, I feel bad about it and that makes me extra careful during my period.

3)The only time I ever felt weird was when my dad talked about it.
