What is the normal menstrual cycle?
A normal cycle is about 28 days from the first day of bleeding to the first day of the next period. It is also normal for it to be 21 to 35 days.
The rise and drop of the hormones progesterone and estrogen cause a period to happen. A rise causes the lining of the uterus to become thin.
A drop causes the lining to break down and pass out of the body. This is what causes bleeding. Bleeding often lasts from 3 to 5 days. It is also normal for it to last 7 days. This cycle will happen each month from about 12 years of age to an average age of 51 years of age. The cycle normally only ends with pregnancy or menopause.
If you are experiencing menstrual disorder talk openly with your gynaecologist. It will help you make the best choices for your care.
