    Correct Answer
    C. Fungal infections
    Explanation
    Women who are using synthetic and plastic created pads are most likely to contract fungal infections. This is because synthetic materials do not allow proper airflow, causing moisture to be trapped, creating a warm and damp environment that promotes the growth of fungi. Fungal infections, such as yeast infections, can cause itching, irritation, and discomfort in the vaginal area. Therefore, it is important for women to choose breathable and natural materials for their pads to reduce the risk of fungal infections.

Changing the sanitary towel every 5 hours ensures that it is not worn for too long and maintains good hygiene.
