    Episode 76 Sustainable Period Hygiene in Kalikot

    Episode 76 Sustainable Period Hygiene in Kalikot

    May is International Menstrual Hygiene Month, and in this special episode, we take you to Matela Village in Kalikot, Nepal. Women who previously had no access to menstrual products are now making their own pads from available cloth at home.

    These women, who used to be confined to their houses or forced to live in sheds (Chaugoth) during their periods, can now speak freely about menstruation. This transformation is a small but powerful example of the change we hope to see across all communities: dignity and access to menstrual hygiene for every woman.

    Episode 72- Living with PCOS

    Episode 72- Living with PCOS

    Did you know that a lot of people who have periods—up to 7 in 10—might have something called Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)? But most don't even know it! It's not just about irregular periods; it can also lead to infertility and cause other health issues, making life a bit tough.

    Let's hear from gynaecologist Dr. Smeena Pradhananga as she shares her expertise on PCOS—what causes it, signs to look out for, and how it's treated.

    PCOS isn't just about numbers. It's a complex web of experiences, emotions, and challenges that extend far beyond irregular periods. It stands as the commonest cause of anovulation and a significant factor in infertility. But it doesn't stop there—PCOS is associated with a range of long-term health issues that impact both physical and emotional well-being, affecting the lives of those navigating its twists and turns.
