Menstruation, aka having your period. It is when blood ( a lot of it ) and tissue from your uterus comes out of your vagina. It happens to every female, every month. The menstrual cycle basically helps your body prepare for pregnancy.

Here’s how - You have 2 ovaries and each one holds a bunch of eggs. These eggs are super tiny and cannot be seen with the naked eye.

During the cycle, these eggs in your ovaries mature  and get ready to be fertilized by a sperm cell. These hormones also make the lining of your uterus thick and spongy. So, if your egg does get fertilized, it has a nice cushy place to land and start a pregnancy. This lining is made of tissue and blood, like almost everything else inside our bodies. It has lots of nutrients to help a pregnancy grow.

About halfway through your menstrual cycle, your hormones tell one of your ovaries to release a mature egg — this is called Ovulation. Most people don’t feel it when they ovulate, but some ovulation symptoms are bloating, spotting, or a little pain in your lower belly that you may only feel on one side. Once the egg leaves your ovary, it travels through one of your fallopian tubes toward your uterus. If pregnancy doesn’t happen, your body doesn’t need the thick lining in your uterus. Your lining breaks down, and the blood, nutrients, and tissue flow out of your body through your vagina. “ Voilà, it’s your period “

The cycle begins during puberty that is at the age of 12 or 14.
The cycle usually ends at the age of 45 and 55. This is called ‘Menopause’. After menopause is totally complete, you can’t get pregnant anymore.

Having a period can be a stressful experience for some. Either reaction is normal and okay. Some people have very regular cycles, and other people’s cycles vary from month to month. It’s really common for young girls to have irregular periods. Since your period can be unpredictable, it’s hard to know for sure when you’ll ovulate (even if you’re carefully tracking your menstrual cycle).

It is IMPORTANT for the WORLD to realise a FACT that periods are beautiful. Yes, they are painful but still are a very significant part of every female’s life.
- We are made fun of.
- We are blamed for our mood swings.
- Chemists generally use a black polythene to ‘hide’ sanitary napkins. Wait. WHY?
- Spots are termed ‘disgusting’ and we are judged.
- We arn’t even allowed in the kitchen / to be a part of specific functions, while on our period. Well, that’s pathetic.
