I will talk about Menstruation, one of the many physical signs indicating that a girl is becoming a woman.
About 3 years after a girl’s breasts start developing, when she is between 8 and 13 years old, she experiences her first menstruation. But about 6 months before then, she has an increased amount of clear vaginal discharge which is normal.
This occurs when the reproductive system of a girl have matured, and are functioning together.
The female child has 2 ovaries, 2 fallopian tubes, and also a womb (uterus). The ovaries which contain thousands of eggs or ova, sit on either side of the womb (uterus), in the pelvis, the lowest part of the abdomen.
At the age of puberty, the girl’s reproductive organs have matured, the pituitary gland releases hormones, stimulating production of other hormones called estrogen and progesterone, by the ovaries.
These hormones have some effects on the body of the girl such as growth, maturity, emotions, etc.
Once every month, an egg leaves one of the ovaries, travels down one of the fallopian tubes, to the womb (uterus). This process is referred to as “ovulation.”
Therefore Menstruation simply defined, is the monthly bleeding experienced by a woman. In the process, the body sheds the lining of the womb (uterus), as the menstrual blood from the uterus flows through the small opening in the cervix, passing out through the vagina.
Periods or menstrual flows occur monthly except when a woman is pregnant, breastfeeding, or when she has attained menopause (can no longer release eggs from her ovaries).
Although some girls start menstruation from the age of 8, others start at 15.
The Menstrual Cycle is calculated from the beginning of one period, to the beginning of the next period.
Young girls have menstrual cycle that lasts 24 days, some 28, 30, and others even longer. However, after a girl’s very first menstruation, menstrual cycles last 21 – 45 days, and after some years, it reduces to an adult length of 21 – 34 days.
Also girls who are just beginning to menstruate experience irregular periods, as the body is trying to adjust, but at most 2 years later, they have regular periods. After sometime, the girl can predict when her period will commence.
Women when you or your female children experience any of the following please go see your doctor:
1. When periods last more that a week.
7. Any other irregularity.
When you menstruate, use sanitary pads, tampons, etc.
When you eat right, sleep soundly, exercise, these should take care of premenstrual syndrome, but if not go see your doctor.
Parents, it is your duty to counsel your little girls menstruating about the danger of sleeping with a man, to prevent pregnancy at a tender age, because they are not matured enough to handle pregnancy.
Women who experience menstrual pains, can drink the Norland Kuding Tea for 1 week before, and during their period. This prevents menstrual pains.
Women with fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes, irregular menstruation or total stop, etc., please call me for CURE for such problems.
