Good to hear from you, Sadhuvi!
Dear Fellow Blogger,
The only sentence that bothered me in this whole article is this:
“I still feel ashamed that I didn’t know anything about menstruation earlier and changes that happen in my body due to that..”
You shouldn’t be ashamed, the society around you should be for treating this biological function as taboo.
This is how shame works , this is how long the damage lasts , sometime a lifetime, however the fact that you have now documented it here shows that you have finally used your voice against it, that’s a good beginning.

Thank you for participating, Ekta!
I agree treating it like just another day is important and its also important to voice if there is any pain/discomfort related to it, basically treating it like any other normal body function.
