How Does Menstrual Blood Occur

How does menstrual bleeding happen and where does it come from?

Menstrual bleeding occurs as a result of shedding of the inner layer of the uterus, called the endometrium, at the end of each menstrual period. With the onset of menstrual days, this layer thickens with the effect of the female hormone estrogen. This is referred to as the proliferation phase.

Ovulation occurs in the middle of menstrual periods. When the end of menstruation is approached, the secretory phase is passed with the effect of progesterone hormone. Later, with the decrease of the progesterone hormone, the endometrium is shed and menstrual bleeding occurs. In other words, menstrual bleeding consists of pieces of the endometrium and some blood. This blood comes only from inside the womb. There is no such thing as coming from the ovaries or the abdomen. After a while, the inner layer of the uterus, the endometrium, thickens again with the effect of hormones, and the bleeding period ends. This period consists of a cycle that continues systematically every month.

What is the content of menstrual bleeding?

Menstrual bleeding consists of rashes that occur in the endometrium and a small amount of blood. Later, the uterine wall begins to thicken, so shedding and bleeding gradually decrease and stop. In general, the menstrual cycle of every healthy woman takes place in this way. Occasional menstrual irregularity may be seen.

Is menstrual blood bad blood?

This idea about menstrual bleeding is completely wrong. With the arrival of menstrual blood, the inside of the uterus is cleaned. There is no such thing as dirty blood. The uterus and its interior is a very sterile area. When the menstrual period ends, a child can be conceived in the direction of pregnancy. In addition, when it is not possible to provide the necessary environment for the formation of a baby in an unsterile uterus, how can pregnancy occur after each menstrual period? In short, this completely excludes the idea that menstrual blood is dirty.

The uterus is a hygienic site

Under normal conditions, the menstrual cycle that every woman experiences on certain days of each month consists of bleeding originating from the uterus. These bleedings are a ritual that the endometrium layer with the uterus performs in order to get rid of the pieces and residues shed during the self-renewal phase.

The uterus performs this cycle every month to prepare the right conditions for pregnancy. In a way, it does its own cleaning. Because the endometrium, which is excreted by the uterus with each menstrual period, will create the environment in which the baby will live, during the fertilization of the egg cell by the male sperm during the ovulation period and this menstrual bleeding does not occur. Considering all this systematic cycle, the possibility of menstruation coming through the uterus and the uterus being dirty cannot be out of question.
