WHY DO YOU HAVE IRRITATIONS WHILE MENSTRUATING

There are many things that make you have irritation when you menstruate.
·The kind of material you are using when you are menstruating, If you are using a material that does not absorb the blood, the blood will be on the surface of the vagina instead of going into the pad, you MUST have irritation and rashes, if you are using tissue, wrapper material, foam, etc you are sure to have it
·When you take long to change your pad.  I have been on a field work and discover that most girls/women use pads beyond 8 hours, This is killing!, this is where 80% of people who menstruate get yeast infection

This keep happening every month, and any month the girl/woman has sexual intercourse with a man during ovulation, pregnancy will occur, but when not, you will still shed the tissues off as period
So if one is menstruating for the first year, the period may not be regular, it may sometimes cease for 2-3months, then reappears. This also happens when a woman is going into menopause for the first 3 years. Menopause …
