What is menstruation?
Menstruation is the shedding of a female's uteral lining which takes place every month. Menstruation is the loss of blood and tissue from uterus or womb that shed out of the vagina. Menstrual cycle lasts for 3 to 5 days in every 28 days (of a month). Every month, ovulation occurs i.e. an egg is released. . . .+
Menstruation (Period) is defined as a vaginal bleeding which occurs every month in females. It is a part of a woman’s regular monthly cycle. It usually begins between the age of 11 and 14, which is termed as menarche and ends nearly at the age to 51, which is known as menopause.
Dysmenorrhoea is the medical term for pain associated with menstruation (periods). It is also known as menstrual cramps and is the most commonly reported menstrual disorder. More than one half of women who menstruate have some pain for 1-2 days each month.
The intensity of menstrual cramps decreases as a woman grows in age. Sometimes, they disappear completely after a woman's first term pregnancy. If there are any other medical conditions or anatomical abnormalities which are thought to contribute to the pain, treatment of the underlying abnormality or condition can bring the relief.
Women are repeatedly shown bent up and clutching their stomach to portray menstruation. The truth is that menstruation does not mark barriers for women from living their lives and they are nothing to be ashamed about.
Breast pain is a common condition and is experienced by a majority of women at least once in their lifetime. It can be associated with many problems such as hormonal changes (such as menstruation), breast surgery in the past, injury to the breast, side effects of certain medications, etc.
