Thus, it has become a barrier in the motive of Swachh Bharat Mission, as well as a big producer of various vaginal diseases. 85 adolescent girls of 13 -23 years belonging to Saharanpur district (U.P.) were interviewed and the data was analyzed through statistical tools. Most of the girls had least awareness about the ideal MHM practices. Their disposal technique of used sanitary pads was not too eco- friendly.
