WHY 5TH FEBRUARY?

The day is inspired by the Menstrual process as the average period cycle is of 28 days which simulates with the 28 days of February and 5 is the average number of bleeding days in a period that is denoted by the date 5th, this similarity made this day interesting as well as logical. There are some more reasons to celebrate Menstrual Health and Awareness Day espe- cially marked on 5th February as this day provides favourable conditions for mass action/ awareness events: • Since the weather in most of India is pleasant for outdoor campaigns. • Due to absence of holidays and examinations, school/college students can comfort- ably become a part of MHAD campaigns.
