    SUMMARY
    -The bleeding occurs when eggs were not fertilized during the menstrual cycle.
    -One menstrual cycle can last anywhere from 21 to 35 days. Also, a woman might notice changes in her own schedule: one month her period might come earlier, the next month, it’s late.
    -Spotting refers to very light brown discharge that occurs between menstrual periods. It happens because of a drop in estrogen, the female sex hormone.
    -You might miss your period if you’re really sick, on the pill or abruptly stopped taking it, stressed, or you’ve over-exercised. It can also be because of a hormonal problem or from being over- or underweight.
    -Irregular bleeding can be a sign that something’s wrong hormonally. It’s definitely not normal, especially if you’re not on the pill and you’re bleeding in between periods.
    -Doctors recommend changing your tampon every 4-8 hours depending on your flow.
    -There’s always sanitary pads. But what’s even better is reusable menstrual products, like reusable cloth pads, menstrual cups, or period panties.
    -“Fake periods” are shorter than a regular period, less painful, and bleeding isn’t that heavy. A regular period can occur only after a woman quits taking birth control. It takes from 6 to 12 months to restore a normal menstrual cycle.
    -If you’re pregnant, the amount can be really small, just a couple of drops, which is why it often goes unnoticed.
    -It’s perfectly fine to continue playing sports or swimming during your period.
    -Contact bleeding occurs during contact, like sexual intercourse or a gynecological exam. If the damage isn’t severe, contact bleeding doesn’t last long.
    -Menstrual cramping is super common, although the degree of pain can differ from one woman to another. Cramping happens due to hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.
    -If you’re trying to conceive, better not do it on your period. You’ll wanna wait for after your period because your chances of getting pregnant will be much higher.
    -PMS symptoms may get WORSE as you reach your late 30s or 40s and approach menopause. Over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers can help ease the pain.
