The importance of associating the menstrual management with the sanitation systems and the provision of the hygiene education has been extensively recognized by the non-governmental organizations (Wateraid, 2010). This includes United Nations Agency (UNICEF, 2010), National governments (UK), the private sector (Proctor and Gamble) and International donors (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation). In the past decade, the needs of women during their menstruation have been explicitly realized by academic scholars and practitioners. It covers the topic of hygiene and cleanliness which surrounds the concept of female hygiene. In the more recent times, the menstrual hygiene management among the adolescents has been of much interest to the practitioners and has been the main subject for empirical researches conducted by renowned scholars. In the studies which had been conducted in the countries such as Kenya (MacMohan et al., 2011), Uganda (Quest, 2010), Tanzania (Sommer, 2009) and other countries with low income (Thakre et al., 2011), it has been compellingly advised that majority of the adolescents were deprived of education regarding the hygiene management, which impacts their performance at school and ultimately affects the societal empowerment of women because of lack of knowledge. Besides indicating the importance of hygiene management, these studies also highlighted the implementation of the appropriate systems which enable the female customers to be more aware of the hygiene management of the menstrual cycle.
In one of the studies conducted to learn about the female hygiene, 200 women were given the menstrual pads and tampons (PeÑa, 1962). In addition, 135 women were employed for the purpose of trying the menstrual cup and out of these women; the women who would be willing to use the menstrual cup were registered for the test. Then 65 women who were nominated were recruited to try the menstrual cup. These women were interviewed before they tried the menstrual cups. All the women who were employed to try the menstrual cup were also asked if they had any history of vaginal infection and if they make use of soap and water to wash their hands. This was studied so as to ensure that the usage of menstrual cup would not aggravate any symptoms at later stage of their use. The groups were composed on a random basis. Their social connections and social status were also studied. In the end, all the participants were supplied with instructional manual which stressed on the usage of the products. Thus, it would be correct to say that this research assisted in understanding the cleaning and storing of the female hygiene products (Gubernick and Jackson, McNeil-PPC, Inc., 2007). All the interview data was collected by using mobile phones and then it was transferred into web console for procuring the data. This assisted the researcher of the study to control the flow of the data, monitor, and analyse the data in real time situations. Additionally, the interviewers were closely monitored. The web console is provided to main researchers of the study with secure password. This showed that social media is an integral part of the researches which were conducted in the past and provided the baseline for the current studies to be conducted (Herrouz, et Al., 2013).
