In this video for Tribe’s Tool Box Saschan explains How you can better understand your menstrual cycle.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines Menstruation as: The process in a woman of discharging blood and other material from the lining of the uterus at intervals of about one lunar month from puberty until the menopause, except during pregnancy.

It’s important to point out that this definition isn’t inclusive of trans men who may also still have periods because not everyone who has a period identifies as a woman and not all women have periods.

Whether you’ve got a visit from your aunt in the red hills, the Bloody Buddy, You’re on your monthly’s, Riding the cotton Pony or surfing the crimson wave whatever you call it for over half of the population menstruating is almost an inevitability yet 1 in 4 of us still don’t understand our menstrual cycle.
