"Every month or so, the uterus lining gets thicker to prepare for a fertilised egg if the woman becomes pregnant. If the egg doesn't get fertilised, that lining is released from the body as blood through the vagina. This monthly process is called menstruation or a period."

Some people get scared or worried about periods here are some facts for you babe : 

•A woman will spend approximately 3,500 days menstruating.

•An entire menstrual period usually releases less than half a cup of blood,

•Periods tend to be heavier, more painful, and longer in the colder months.

•Up until the age of about 18, irregular periods are quite common because the body is still working on perfecting the system.

•A young woman can get her first period anywhere between 10 and 16 years of age. Delayed onset of menstruation is rare, but if a girl hasn’t started by the age of 16, she should see a Gynecologist.

•It is possible to get pregnant if a woman has vaginal sex during her period because sperm can survive up to a week in the body.

•PMS can make you more violent.One study of female prison inmates concluded that they are far more likely to commit violent acts in the days preceding menstruation than in the days directly after menstruation.

•Your period can cause an iron deficiency. Losing all that blood means losing all that iron. You may also feel so rotten and fatigued, you don’t bother ironing your clothes.

•You need a little bit of body fat in order to menstruate.If your body fat plummets below 8-12%, your period will abruptly cease, if it ever began at all. Fat cells are correlated with a woman’s estrogen levels and are thus necessary in both menstruation and procreation.

In a way we are almost taught to conceal periods, not talk about them and show no signs. It's a  "curse from mother nature" or an obstacle to be tackled. There is absolutely nothing embarrassing, offensive or unnatural about a period. Its a part of life so don't stand for anyone telling you they're gross of shamefull. 

On your period you should make sure you : 

•take care of yourself

•walk or exercise


•listen to your body
