Menstruation (Periods)

A Period is part of the menstrual cycle when a woman bleeds from her vagina for a few days.

It is normal for females to start their period around 12 years old; however, this is different for everyone. 

Periods most commonly happen every 28 days or so, but this can range from 21 to 40 days and usually last between 3 and 8 days; again, this can differ for everyone.
