Why do women have periods?

A #woman’s period (#menstruation) is normal #vaginal #bleeding that is a #natural part of a #healthy woman’s #monthly #cycle. Every month, in the years between puberty (typically age 11 to 14) and #menopause (typically about age 51), your #body readies itself for #pregnancy. The lining of your uterus thickens and an #egg #grows and is released from one of your #ovaries.

If pregnancy doesn’t #occur, #estrogen and #progesterone levels fall, eventually hitting a level that tells your body to begin #menstruation. During your #period, the uterus sheds its lining and it’s passed, along with some #blood, out of the body through the #vagina. The average woman loses about two to three #tablespoons of bloodTrusted Source during her period.

The time between periods (last day to first day) typically averages 28 days, with bleeding typically lasting around 2 to 7 days.
