Menstrual cycle: What is it?

Each month, from puberty until menopause, women’s bodies prepare for a pregnancy. A change in hormone levels prepares for the release of an egg and the uterine lining thickens. When there is no fertilized egg to start a pregnancy, the uterus sheds its lining. This shedding of the uterine lining is the monthly menstrual bleeding, also called menstruation. These phenomena are the menstrual cycle.
