women period
Women’s periods (also known as menstrual cycles) are the natural process of a woman’s body releasing an egg from the ovary and preparing the uterus for pregnancy. During a period, the lining of the uterus is shed and passes through the vagina. On average, a woman’s period will last anywhere from two to eight days each month. An analogy to help you better understand a period is to think of it like a garden. Each month, the garden is fertilized and prepared for growth. In the same way, each month the uterus is prepared for pregnancy. A fun fact about periods is that the average woman will have around 450 periods in her lifetime!
