My mom wouldn't let me even touch anything when she was canning when I was on or near my period.

One summer my sister in law was on her period & helped me can tomatoes.. we did 56 qts in one day. The next morning they were all spoiled... all 56 qts! We did all that work for nothing. It may be an old wives tale, but it happened to me. The ones I canned earlier by myself were fine.
