Its understanding and interpretations has wider impact on subjets such as marternal and adolescent health, population control and as well as family planing. Following it's sensitive and complex nature, it's comprehensive impact has hardly felt.

Menstruation which is also known as period is a monthly discharge in a form of blood from the vaginal canal. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the body of every  woman. It cycle begin from puberty till menopause. (cessation of menstruation). A female child from 8 years to 16 years can experience this but the average age is 12 years. 

The first time a girl child experience this is known as MENARCHY. Broader diverse factors such as diet,age,genetics,and ones health can delay or hasten ones menarchy. 

Menstruation stops when pregnancy has taken place and this an important part of it I wish to share to my readers understanding. 

The subject of menstruation goes with ovulation which is less understood.

Ovulation occurs when an egg ruptures and a yolk is released into the womb to await a sperm for fertilization to take place,(fertilization here means the fusion of the yolk and sperm to form a zygote for pregnancy to take place).

 Menstruation consist of 3cycles.

-Restructuring cycle.

-Ovulation cycle.

-Secretory cycle.


This is the time of the month where old tissues are shed off and new ones take their place in the womb. 


This is when the egg ruptures and yolk is out and ready to meet a sperm. When it doesn't meet a sperm within 12- 24 hours it dies.


This begins after the yolk dies. The dead yolk and other dead tissues are shed off as blood from the womb and passes through the vaginal canal.

The average lengths of this cycle is 28day but it varies from every woman due to the following factors.

-Change of environment. 

-Change in diet.

-Hormonal changes. 


-Drug use.

These are some common symptoms we face during this period. 

-Enlargement of the breast.


-Weight gain.





- Hot flashes.

-Mood .



Note that,there are often miscalculation of safe days and unsafe days,therefore it is essential for individuals who are sexually active to take responsibility for their sex life. 

Both parties should be knowledgeable enough to avoid unwanted pregnancy. 

For the 28day cycle this is how to calculate ones safe and unsafe days. 

For instance, when your period started on the 1st January 2020 and ended on 5th, in other to know the length of your cycle, one has to start counting from 1st to the date of the next period..

For example;    Period begin =1st Jan 2020.

  Next period  = 28th Jan 2020. 

Start counting from 1st to 28th and you will get the length of your cycle. 

The duration is the number of days you had your period. This can last for 3 to7days.


Start counting from 6th to 12th after the end of your period.


Start counting 13th to 15th days after the safe days has ended. One should stay away from sexual activities these days to avoid getting into trouble. 

The rest of the days are safe till menstruation begins again. That is from 16th to 28th. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
