How Periods Occur in Women – The Naked Truth | Her Body


So today I’m gonna ask you a question. What is a period? Go on. I’ll wait. I mean we’ve talked about delaying periods and irregular period, and period lengths but
seriously other than the fact that it oh my god I’m bleeding! What exactly is
going in your body when your getting your period? Well you see, your menstruation cycle
is a part of your reproductive cycle. That basically
means that you become sexually mature when you first get your period. Average
ages is about 12 or 13. That means your body is now able to get
pregnant you’re gonna keep getting periods till about 45 to 55 when you hit menopause which then means your body cannot
reproduce any more. So during your period you’re gonna bleed from your uterus through your vagina. Remember in the last episode when we talked about eggs and fallopian tubes? Well during
ovulation a single egg is gonna burst from the
ovary, travel through the fallopian tube into the uterus. The lining of the uterus
which is called the endometrium has been thickened by hormones and is
basically ready to be fertilized. So, if there’s a sperm waiting for it, you
know, well great or maybe not great if you don’t want to get
pregnant. So if there’s not a sperm waiting for it that basically means that your in endometrium lining is going to slip away and shed AKA your period is going to begin. So the stuff you’re actually passing through your period is that endometrium mixed with blood
which is caused by the blood vessels that are breaking within the endometrium. Get it? You get
your period because you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant than you
don’t have a uterine lining to shed because you need that to nurse the
embryo, so that’s why not having your period can be a telltale
sign of pregnancy pretty crazy eh? So that is basically
what your period is all about in a nut shell of course there are other factors, but you
know, I’m hungry I’ve got to go to lunch. Uh, since it is hormonal, you’re gonna have different durations and different period lenths, and different blood flow but you don’t need me to tell you all that
because you’ve watched my other videos , right? Right? Well if you haven’t, please
