Feminine hygiene is a general euphemism used to describe personal care products used by women during menstruation, vaginal discharge, and other bodily functions related to the vulva. Sanitary napkins (American English) / Sanitary towels (British English), pantiliners, tampons, menstrual cups, and feminine wipes[1] are the major categories of feminine hygiene products.

In the 1930s, the term was used in the United States to refer instead to birth control.[2]
