what is a period



  1. 0 Votes

    A period is a natural process of the female body as a result of the preparation to conceive and carry a child each month. As part of a sexually mature female’s inner workings, the lining of her uterus builds up so that it can properly support the “egg” that ovaries deposit once it is fertilized by sperm. However, if the egg is not fertilized, the body has to have a way to get rid of the egg and lining so that they do not become toxic to the body.


    This happens in the form of a period, in which the inner lining of the uterus sluffs off and exist the body from the same area that the baby would be delivered from. The “chunks” of a period (not all women notice these) are the lining of the uterus, and the blood is formed from the way the lining breaks off from the uterus.


    It is a natural phenomenon and nothing to be concerned about unless one feels they are bleeding excessively or do not stop after about a week. Then it is time to discuss with a doctor to see if there isn’t something more serious going on.

    Periods are something that every adult woman experiences. Unfortunately, due to certain features of our modern culture, women tend to use disposable items to catch the blood that is discharged. If you look at the ‘feminine products’ section of your grocery store, you will see a wide range of products made from paper and plastic which is not usually of the biodegradable variety. However, there are some more environmentally friendly options. Some of these items are worn internally while others are worn externally.
