According to a 2014 National Hygiene Baseline Survey, 89% of the surveyed girls did not use sanitary pads in Bangladesh. Besides being forced to manage their periods with unhygienic products, they also face several food and physical restrictions during that time. As the right products and facilities that can help them during these days are unavailable, limited, or very expensive, women workers find it difficult to stay outside for long hours. Above that, taboos and stigmas force them into isolation. These issues have serious consequences on the reproductive health and mental wellbeing of women. The impact is very apparent in the garment industry as the majority of workers were women and most of them had to skip work during heavy flow days. The country loses an estimated 1600 million work hours every month.
