19 Menarche(me-NAR-ky) - the first occurrence of menstruation Average age for a girl to have her first menstruation is 12 yrs. Old. The purpose of the menstrual cycle is to create conditions in a woman’s body that will allow for conception and pregnancy. Menstruation comes with a set of symptoms days before the begging of a period also known as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).

20  The average menstrual cycle is 28 days long.  The menstrual cycle has 2 cycles  Follicular or proliferative phase : levels of estrogen arise, causing the linings of the uterus to thicken  Luteal or secretory phase : progesterone levels arise and helps prepare the uterine lining for pregnancy.  Conception the occurs if the egg in the upper fallopian tube is fertilized by a sperm cell.  If egg is not fertilized, the ovum moves down the fallopian tube, estrogen and progesterone levels drop and period will begin.

21  Menstruation is not free from health and medical conditions.  Amenorrhea - when a girl has not started her menstrual period by age 16 or the absence of period that was regular.  Dysmenorrhea - painful periods, bad cramps  Abnormal Uterine Bleeding - heavy vaginal bleeding, or unusually long periods  Toxic Shock Syndrome - bacterial infection associated with tampon use.
