What should we know about periods?

Menstruation is the technical term for getting your period. About once a month, females who have gonethrough puberty will experience menstrual bleeding. This happens because the lining of the uterus has prepared itself for a possible pregnancy by becomingthicker and richer in blood vessels. If pregnancy does not occur, this thickened lining is shed, accompanied by bleeding. Bleeding usually lasts for 3-8 days.From the point of view of contraception, each menstrual cycle of women can be divided into menstrual period, ovulation period and safety period.

Menstruation typically occurs in 28 day cycles so most women get their period every 28 days. However, some women have longer cycles and may only get their period every 40 days, while other have shorter menstrual cycles and may get their periods as often as every 21 days.

Ovulationis the release of an egg from the ovaries. The same hormones that cause the uterus lining to build up also cause an egg to leave one of the ovaries. The egg travels through a thin tube called a fallopian tube to the uterus. If the egg is fertilized by a sperm cell, it attaches to the wall of the uterus, where over time it develops into a baby. If the egg is not fertilized, the uterus lining breaks down and bleeds, causing a period.

What is the ovulation period?

Ovulation is the name of the process that happens usually once in everymenstrual cyclewhen hormone changes trigger an ovary to release an egg. You can only become pregnant if a sperm fertilizes an egg. Ovulation usually happens 12 to 16 days before your next period starts.

The eggs are contained in your ovaries. During the first part of each menstrual cycle, one of the eggs is being grown and matured. The total ‘fertility window’, taking into account the lifetime of both the sperm and the egg, is about six days. The ‘fertile days’ are all the days during your menstrual cycle when you have the ability to become pregnant if you have unprotected sex.

Women say: “Menstrual pain is not a disease, but it hurts to kill people.” Men can’t experience this uncomfortable feeling! !


Menopausal disorder

Menopause is defined as the transition period from normal ovarian function decline to layout function in women, and is collectively referred to as [menopausal disorder]. During this period, due to the reduction of female hormones secreted by the ovaries, many physical discomforts such as hot flashes, palpitations, emotional instability, and skin atrophy may occur. Menstruation can also be reduced or even stopped when menopausal disorders occur, so it is also called [menopausal syndrome] and can appear in the 40s to 50s.

ilently. Most women may adapt, but the lack of hormones, long-term (about ten years), will cause osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease, which will seriously affect the quality of life, so the menopausal disorders cannot be ignored.
