Reproductive health care campaign conducted by VIN along with International Volunteer

VIN volunteers lead by Helen from France, organized reproductive health care campaign with women from Kavresthali. The campaign was to aware women about Female reproductive organs, Menstruation, Menstruation hygiene, Menstruation disorders and Uterine prolapse. VIN volunteers who worked in blood pressure campaign found that most of the women are suffered from reproductive health problems and menstruation disorders. Helen decided to follow up women with the campaigns because they were suffered and not going to hospital for check up. The campaign was designed to educate women about the normal and abnormal phenomenon and complications from the health problems.

The group has visited 8 different clusters from ward 6 of Kavresthali where altogether 72 women were benefited from the campaign.  The group used poster and picture to explain about Female reproductive organs, menstruation and uterine prolapse. A hand made posters were used for display. Women were informed about symptoms of the problem, risk factors, management and prevention.

Reproductive Organ

The campaigns on menstruation has focused on the menstrual cycle which is recurrent monthly menstruation. The average age for a girl to get a first period is about 8 to 15 years old. Woman usually have periods until about age 45/55. The menstrual cycle provides important body chemicals, called hormones, to keep the body healthy. It’s also prepares female for pregnancy each month. A cycle is counted from the first day of 1 period to the next period. During 28 days.

Symptoms of menstruation disorders:

  • Low stomach pain
  • Irregular menstruation
  • Absence of menstruation
  • Abnormal bleeding



Uterus Prolapse:

Descent organ is very frequent. When the uterus in no longer supported by the muscles and ligament it collapses through the urogenital cleft.


  • Delivery
  • Menopause
  • Strain


  • Leak urine
  • Swollen stomach
  • Difficult for walk
  • Tired

Uteral Prolapse

During this reproductive health care campaign there were many women with menstrual problems and bleeding disorders. This campaign was also the time to discuss and share experiences for women. The women were happy with a project that they could pass knowledge on to their daughters and friends what they learn over there. They are expecting the women’s health check up campaign in future. VIN has a plan to continue the campaigns to other parts of the community. First we have a plan to aware all women about reproductive health care and followed them with medical check up campaigns. We are doing similar campaigns on May in ward 4 and 5 of Kavresthali.
