7 common mistakes women make during their period
2. Using scented products
To mask the odour that may emanate during a woman’s period, some women find it necessary to wear fragrant pads or tampons. However, the scents may contain chemicals sensitive to the vagina. It’s recommended to shower more than once a day to help deal with odour.
3. Not keeping track of the cycle
Women should familiarize themselves with their cycle, flow, texture, types of cramps so as to know what to do should something be off kilter.
