Female Hormone Cycle
The menstrual cycle is the monthly series of changes a woman’s body goes through in preparation for the possibility of pregnancy. Monthly, one of the ovaries releases an egg – a process called ovulation. At precisely the exact same time, hormonal changes prepare the uterus for pregnancy. If ovulation takes place and the egg isn’t fertilized, the lining of the uterus sheds through the vagina. This is a menstrual period.
