Menstrual period or cycle is the series of changes in a woman’s body

The menstrual cycle is the series of changes a woman’s body goes through to prepare for a pregnancy. About once a month, the uterus grows a new lining (endometrium) to get ready for a fertilized egg . When there is no fertilized egg to start a pregnancy, the uterus sheds its lining.

The menstrual cycle can range from 21 to 35 days in length. It is measured from the point at which your period stops to when the next one begins. The actual period of menstruation, when the lining of the uterus is discharged, can last from 2 to 7 days.

The normal menstrual cycle is going to vary greatly from woman to woman, and by age and lifestyle. Some have short menstrual cycle, while others have longer ones.

All Scripture quotations, unless otherwise indicated, are taken from The Holy Bible, English Standard Version.
