The Female Menstrual Cycle
Typically a girls menstrual cycle starts around 12 or 13 years, however, some girls have their first period as early as 9 years old and others get theirs as late as 16 years. All women’s cases are different. The menstrual cycle happens every month following a 28-day cycle on average.
With every passing cycle, it prepares women for a possible conception. When ovulating an egg is released from the ovary, if the egg is fertilized through its journey to the fallopian tubes it grows to develop. If the eggs are not fertilized the lining separates from the uterus and exits the body from the vagina as a period – a menstrual cycle.
When to See a Doctor:
- Period that lasts longer than 8 days or more (anything longer than 8 days is not normal)
- Irregular / Heavy periods
- Pain during and after intercourse
- Having more than one period in a one month cycle
