Menstruation becomes a regular part of life. Depending on several factors, menstruation can last anywhere from three to seven days.
This occurs monthly when a woman is not pregnant. Having regular menstrual cycles is a sign that important parts of a woman’s reproductive system are working normally.
During menstruation, however, women have to deal with pain, discomfort and inconvenience that come along with it.
NOTE: If you have heavier bleeding than usual or periods lasting longer than what is normal for you, you should see your doctor. These can sometimes be symptoms of health problems that require medical care.
