Ah, teenage. The awkward time where we grow up and our body goes through a plethora of hormonal changes. Cracky voices, hair growth et al. For girls, the biggest change that they go through during this tumultuous period is the onset of menstruation.
This monthly cycle begins as early as the age of 12 for some, while most experience it by 14-15. The 5 dreaded days drain out all energy from the body and usually persist till the age of 55, post which women experience menopause. Did you know why women bleed for 5 days a month? Whether you’re a girl or a guy, this is some pretty vital information that you should definitely be aware. Read on to find out more:
A woman’s body undergoes menstruation every month to throw out the failed embryo that was not fertilized (unless pregnancy occurs) as this embryo might cause infection or mess up their hormonal balance. It may even lead to complications during pregnancy and birth.
Well-known online publisher, TED-Ed, released a very informative video that perfectly explains exactly why women go through menstruation every month and it answers all the questions that we always wanted to ask about periods. The video already has close 6 million views and is appreciated by teens, adults, men and women alike.
