I think I bled through my pants, Kel. What do I do? I don't have extra clothes?
Let' go to the bathroom and then the nurses office.
Anytime Heather! That's what girls are for!
Thanks for giving me a tampon and watching my back Kel!
Most girls start puberty between the ages of 9 and 14. During this time, the development of breasts, acne, their bodies, and the process of mensuration begins, (Hyde and Delamater, 2020).
There is nothing to be embarrassed about! It is natural and happens to all girls!
During the first phase of mensuration, the follicular phase, the egg matures. The next stage is ovulation, which is when the egg is released from the ovary and flows through the fallopian tube to be fertilized.
Thank you so much! I didn't know what I was going to do!
During the luteal phase, the egg is in the uterus and a thick lining is created in the idea that the egg will be fertilized. When the egg is not fertilized, mensuration beings and the uterine lining is shed.
The menstrual cycle is every 28 - 30 days for a woman!
The average length of the mensuration cycle is 28 days. Meaning that the last 7-5 days of the 28 day cycle, women will be menstruating.
I am so embarrassed Kel. I didn't even know I was supposed to start today.
Common problems that occur during menstruation are cramps, back aches, swollen or sore breasts, bloating, mood swings and acne. These are all due to the hormone levels increasing or decreasing in their own ways.
We have all sorts of pants in the clothes closet! Feel free to pick through and take some extra pads or tampons!
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is often described for women who are experiencing mood swings. "PMS is not a medial term," (Hyde and Delamater, 2020).
