Our Voices: HERhealth Testimonials



Factory Employee and HERproject Peer Educator | Bangladesh

In my leisure time I like to share the knowledge I have learned from the HERproject. My cousin knew this, so she came to me with her problem—a period lasting three months. I told her than to have a period for three months is very dangerous and that she must see a doctor immediately. The doctor said she had an infection because she didn’t maintain cleanliness and prescribed her some medication. I also advised her to begin using sanitary napkins and she has had no problems since she started using them.
