I have been advised not to take bath or ablution during menses or menstruation. I like cleaning and purity and I can't leave bath for 5-6 days. Whether taking bath while menses (menstruation) is harmful?
All the women of the world have strong belief that taking bath while menses (menstruation) is injurious to health. Many primitive health saving principles strongly favour these concepts but they don't tell its reasons. However; at present two theories are most familiar.
1. Bleeding would be stopped and the woman would get harm.
2. Water will enter inside the vagina and it will harm the body.
These theories are not correct. There is no harm in taking the bath during menses (menstruation). Remember, menses is not a disease and in fact it is a usual natural process.
