Menstruation is a natural biological process of women. Menstruation is also a sign of a girl growing up to be a woman. The maiden time a girl starts having the menses is called menarche. After that menstruation continues till menopause. Menstruation is also a natural process of preparing a woman’s body to attain motherhood. Menstruation transforms into pregnancy if there is impregnation of an egg or eggs by a sperm.
And, if there is no meeting between the sperm and the egg, then the body ensures that the unfertilized egg is not lodged within the body of the woman. The woman’s body then commences the process to dispose off the inner layer of the uterus. This lining is an important ingredient to preserve the fertilized egg. But as the situation is otherwise now, the body triggers a fall in estrogen and progesterone which in turn gently peels off the inner coating of the uterus. Finally, this discarded portion makes its way through the vagina. This is menstruation.
In a normal person, menstruation recurs in a cyclic pattern. The menstruation phase encompasses the average length of the menstruation cycle. The menstrual cycle can be calculated as it recurs after every month. The main cause of menstruation is the hormonal changes that take place within a girl as she attains womanhood. During the menstruation month, the chemicals called hormones rise and fall.
During the menstrual cycle, the female body gets rid of the accumulated endometrial tissues which flow out along with blood via her vagina. This is accompanied by various typical symptoms like the PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder), PMS (premenstrual syndrome), pain associated with ovulation, and/or cramps during menstruation.
