Periods restrict over 60% Indian women in pursuing activities like swimming: everteen® Menstrual Hygiene Survey 2018

everteen® Menstrual Hygiene Survey 2018 saw participation from over 2100 urban women from 85 Indian cities. While 52.1% women said comfort was the top concern while choosing a sanitary product, nearly 83% had not searched for new alternates in the last one year to make periods comfortable. Only 7% of urban Indian women have switched to modern methods such as tampons and menstrual cups.

Nearly 49% women suffered from vaginal infection and discomfort during periods more than once in the last year.
