dc.description.abstractMenstruation averages of 39 years of a menstruatorï¾’s life in which approximately $4,000 is spent on menstrual hygiene products. This additional cost along with the societal stigma that menstruators face for this biological process has left many faced with period poverty, which is the condition in which one has insufficient access to proper menstrual hygiene products and educational resources, thus forcing menstruators to turn to unsafe hygiene practices. Live experiences shared showed period poverty is significant amongst Latinas in Texas.? Despite impacting half of the global population, the lack of knowledge and stigma surrounding menstruation suggests that there is a need to intervene on a higher level to combat the period poverty across Texas. The purpose of this research is to undergo a secondary analysis from existing data. Analysis will depict shared experiences low-income families might have when they have additional economic burden due to menstruation cycles. ?This project was completed with contributions from Donajo Stelzig from the Community Health Workers Training Center.
