Menstrual health and Menopause

"On average, a woman experiences around 450 periods in her lifetime. Timely and regular menstruation is a sign of good reproductive health. Unfortunately, most women don't know what is normal or abnormal during the periods."

Women of reproductive age have to undergo pain and bleeding associated with menstruation every month. The menstrual cycle is a way of preparing a woman's body for carrying the child, and, if the pregnancy doesn't happen, the uterine lining sheds itself with the expelling of mucus and blood (commonly known as periods). One might experience unbearable pain and mood swings during those days, but apart from the pain and discomfort, many things happen inside the body during menstruation.
