Let’s come together to make sure that they don’t go through this alone. This World Menstrual Hygiene Day, I choose to end the taboo and whispers associated with periods and talk openly about it. Because, after all, #ItsJustAPeriod,” Sindhu said in an Instagram post.

“If you believe the stigma around periods should end and want to show your support for it, share a post with a picture like this, tag @stayfreeindia and use #ItsJustAPeriod. Because every voice matters,” she added.
