Inflation. It’s affecting the prices of almost everything, especially groceries and energy prices. Menstrual products were already considered to be expensive 3 years ago, but with inflation, the prices have spiked even more. With an increasing number of people unable to afford menstrual products, it is no surprise that some countries have taken this issue up. Following this, even some universities have decided to make period products free. Universities in Utrecht, Tilburg, Radboud, Twente and other cities have made the decision to start offering free period products.
