A process which happens every month to females and involves discharging the blood and other substances lining the womb, through the vagina. Lasts for 5 - 7 days. Can lead to uncomfortable situations if it begins in a public place, such as school and there's no tampons
or pads on hand.
A common misconception regarding menstruation is that all females become moody and psycho during that time of the month
. This is untrue. Not everyone suffers from PMS
. It is also something that is not to be taken lightly if one DOES suffer from overbearing PMS
Other things that can occur druing menstruation:
- cramps (abdominal pain)
- tender/sore breasts
Menstruation occurs throughout the majority of a female's lifetime, starting at puberty
and ends with the onset of menopause
When a female begins menstruating, it is cause for either celebration or lamentation.
