Question 3

What is menstruation? Explain.

Answer

At puberty, in girls the ovaries get enlarged and starts producing eggs (ovum). One egg matures and is released by one of the ovaries at a time or we can say once in about 28 to 30 days. During this period, the wall of the uterus become thick so as to receive the egg. If the egg is fertilized then it begins to develop and results in pregnancy and if this egg is not fertilized then the released egg and thickened lining of the uterus along with its blood vessels are shed off causing bleeding in female which is known as menstruation.
