A few hundred years ago women menstruated about 50 times in their lives; now, 500 times. What are the reasons for this?
Some girls get their first period when they’re 9, others don’t start menstruating until the age of 14. What causes puberty to start earlier?
The average menstruation lasts for 5 days. However, there are also women who only have their period for 2-3 days a month. And if you’re unlucky, the bleeding can continue for 7 days or even longer.
The word menstruation derives from the word mensis, Latin for month. A lunar month is meant here, not a calendar one.
