"I am 14 years old and as much as my menstruation remains a blessing to my womanhood, I still have unforgettable moments of trauma with it.
The unforgettable event happened when I was a finalist in a science project competition. An hour before I could make my way up to present my project, I was caught with a red mark behind me with no idea of what was happening.
My menstruation had started.
With no pads in my school bag, I was left with unforgettable stomach pains and nausea. The sudden and helpless nature of the event left me with no option but to excuse myself from the competition, and up to now, my project is unpresented."
