The menstrual cycle is the body's monthly pattern of preparing for a possible pregnancy. The uterus grows a new lining called the endometrium. One of the ovaries releases an egg. And then, if the egg isn't fertilized by sperm, the endometrium sheds from the uterus as a menstrual period.
The thickened lining of the uterus (endometrium) is shed, causing menstrual bleeding. Day 1 of the cycle is the first day of menstrual bleeding. Bleeding usually lasts for 4 to 6 days.
The lining of the uterus thickens to prepare for pregnancy. Also, inside a sac (follicle) on the surface of an ovary, an egg becomes ready to be released.
The egg is released (ovulation). Ovulation days can range from about day 7 to day 22 of the cycle. But for each person, the ovulation day is usually quite consistent.
