What is menstruation?

As the levels of hormones increase, the lining of your uterus becomes thicker. During the middle of the menstrual cycle, ovulation occurs. Ovulation is when the ovaries release an egg. If the egg does not get fertilised, it passes through the uterus and out of the body. The lining of the uterus, together with blood and mucus, breaks down and sheds. This blood flow passes through the vagina and causes your monthly period.

When does menstruation begin and end?

Some girls may have their first period at 9 years of age, while others begin at 16 years or older. Most women start to have a monthly period at about 12 years. Menopause is the time in a woman's life when monthly periods stop. This usually occurs at age 50 or older.

What happens each month?

Each period may last for 2 to 7 days and can be light, moderate, or heavy.The total amount of blood loss may be 1 to 4 tablespoons (20 to 60 milliliters) for the whole menstrual period. This amount may be different among women and it may be different for you from one period to another.
