5 The Menstrual Cycle Resources
6 The average menstrual cycle is 28 to 32 days. Some women have longer or shorter cycles, so the exact timing of ovulation can vary. Here’s an overview of a typical 28-day menstrual cycle.
7 Day 1: Menstruation Your cycle begins on the first day of blood flow. Day 2-14: Follicular Phase You cervical mucus starts to thin. Day 14: Ovulation Begins mid-cycle, but can vary between day The egg is released. Chart your basal body temperature (Your basal body temperature (BBT) is your lowest body temperature in a 24-hour period.)
8 Day 15-22: Luteal Phase The lining of the uterus thicken. Day 23-24: Luteal Phase Implantation of a fertilized egg can take place. Hormones produced by pregnancy may be detected by a pregnancy test. Day 25-28: Luteal Phase If pregnancy does not occur, your hormone levels begin to fall. The uterine lining sheds, resulting in your period.
9 9 Change in cervical fluid. Cervical fluid that resembles “egg whites” is a sign that you are near ovulation or are ovulating. Change in basal body temperature. For most women, you will see that prior to ovulation, the basal body temperature is rather consistent. Change in cervical position or firmness. The cervix goes through many changes as a woman ovulates. A woman may notice the clear signs of ovulation; her cervix will be soft, high, open and wet.
10 Light spotting Slight cramping or pain on one side of the pelvis Breast tenderness Abdominal bloating Increased sex drive Heightened sense of smell, taste or vision
11 Cell: The smallest unit of life that is able to reproduce itself. Sperm: The male sex cell. Ovum/Egg: The female sex cell. Zygote: The single cell formed at conception. Conception: The union of the ovum/egg and sperm. Fallopian Tubes: Two hollow tubes that connect to the uterus and have fingerlike projections that reach towards each ovary. Uterus: The organ where the baby develops.

14 Chromosomes: rod-shaped structures, located in the nucleus of a cell, that carry genetic information. Each cell contains 46 chromosomes. Genes: segments of a DNA molecule, located on a chromosome, that contain genetic information. Genes carry traits from parents to children. Sex Determination is decided at the moment you conceive. These chromosomes are called “X” and “Y” chromosomes. 14
15 Eggs contain only “X” sex chromosomes. Sperm contain either “X” or “Y” chromosomes. The fathers contribution is the one that determines the sex of the fetus. 15

17 During a woman’s menstrual cycle, a single egg leaves the ovary. This is called ovulation. At the instant fertilization occurs, sperm and egg join and put together their chromosomes, creating an embryo with a full complement of 23 pairs or a total of 46 chromosomes. 17

Fraternal …Term describing children from multiple pregnancies who develop from two ova and differ in genetic makeup. Will look different - May be different or the same gender. Identical …Term describing children from multiple pregnancies who develop from one fertilized ovum and have the same genetic makeup. Always the same gender 22
23 Prenatal Development …The first stage of prenatal development, which last about two weeks after conception. Placenta …An organ filled with blood vessels that nourishes the baby in the uterus. Umbilical cord …The cord that connects the baby to the placenta. Embryo …Term used to describe a baby in the embryonic stage of development. 23
24 Fetus …The term used to describe a baby in the fetal stage of development. Genetic Factors …Traits that are passed through the genes. Chromosomes …Threadlike structures that carry genes in living cells. Amnion …A fluid-filled sac that surrounds the baby in the uterus. 24

32 Some birth defects can be diagnosed before birth. Some prenatal tests that can be taken are: Ultrasound Amniocentesis Chronic villus sampling
33 Advances in prenatal therapy now make it possible to treat some birth defects before birth. Prenatal surgery – urinary-tract blockages, rare tumors in the lungs, Spina bifida, ph disease,
34 1. Malformations present at birth defects such as congenital heart malformation, Spina bifida (open spine), cleft palate, clubfoot 2. Inborn errors of metabolism Defects such as PKU, Tay Sachs disease 3. Blood Disorders Defects such as sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, thalassemia. 4. Chromosomal Abnormalities Conditions such as Down’s Syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner Syndrome. 5. Prenatal damage Cases include certain infections, drugs, maternal disorders such as diabetes, high blood pressure, Rh disease, umbilical cord accidents, difficult labor or delivery, premature birth.
