“The weather is not good”: exploring the menstrual health experiences of menstruators with and without disabilities:

“Menstrual restrictions were widespread for all, but collecting water and managing menstrual materials was harder for menstruators with disabilities, particularly those requiring caregivers’ support. These factors negatively impacted menstruators with disabilities’ comfort, safety and hygiene, yet they reported less interference of menstruation on participation. [...] Menstruators with disabilities may have reported less interference because they are accustomed to greater participation restrictions than others.” (Jan, Lancet Regional Health - Western Pacific)
