Why Do Girls Menstruate?

Answer

Girls menstruate once every month if they have not been impregnated. The cycle generally occurs every 28 days, but will cease once a girl has become pregnant. Menstruating involves the shedding of the uterine lining. A woman who is going through menstruation will also experience cramping, fatigue, and swelling of the breasts. A woman who is breastfeeding may also notice an absent period. The average menstrual cycle will last between 4 days and a week depending on the woman.
