What you should know at your first Menstrual Period?

It is the beginning of Puberty: This is the stage of life when your body changes to become more like an adult. Menstruation is the first sign of Puberty.
What is Menstrual Period: At puberty, your hormonal system prepares your body every month for a possible pregnancy. The uterus within your body become thicker, more blood cells move toward the uterus and the egg moves through follicle tubes into the Uterus.

If the egg is not fertilized by the Man,s sperm, then pregnancy does not occur. The tissue and blood accumulated within the uterus have to move outside the body, by the natural balance system of the female body, through this process, known as Menstruation.

What should I use for Hygiene in Periods:
Pads: You have to place these inside your underwear to collect the menstrual periods. These are of different thickness and sizes. Some have wings as well, that helps in the proper placement of the pads inside your underwear. A thinner or shorter version is called pantyliner, it is used when the bleeding is on the lower side, i- e the last day of the menstrual cycle, when the bleeding is expected or at the 05- 07 day of the menstrual cycle when the bleeding is expected to be stopped.
