As there are only a few offices that have all the amenities of hygiene and availability of pads in their washrooms. At times it becomes difficult for women to spend time in the office on any odd day of a period. These issues should be fixed with the HR policies that women employees can take a voluntary leave if they are going through the period. As spending time in your fetal position with the hot bags will be comfortable for them than sitting in a chair and spending unproductive hours.

In some of the countries, this concept hasn’t marked its presence yet. As most of the women are still unaware about the same.
