Menstruation, more commonly referred to as a period, involves the shedding of the uterine lining when pregnancy doesn’t happen. This mixture of blood and tissue is known as menses, and every month will be shed from the body in most women. This period of a woman’s life begins between the ages of 11-14 and will be part of their natural cycle until approximately the age of 51. Premenstrual syndrome often occurs in the days before menstruation begins, and often has physical and emotional elements.

What’s Involved In a Normal Menstrual Cycle?

While most people are aware that a period occurs each month at approximately the same time, there is some misunderstanding about what happens during the rest of the menstrual cycle. Below is a breakdown of a standard 28-day menstrual cycle.

While this is the typical series of events and lengths, some women have cycles that only last 24 days, while others last up to 38. Further, some women are very regular, while others may have cycles that vary between 24 and 38 days.
