The menstruation cycle is a series of natural processes that your body goes through to prepare for pregnancy. Your period cycle is controlled by hormones, which rise and fall at different stages. Menstruation cycle length is around 28 days. All women are different, so your own period cycle length may be shorter or longer.
Your body: The first day of your period is the start of your cycle. Your uterus lining breaks down and you begin menstruation.

Your body: Two weeks later your ovaries release an egg, and your uterus thickens. This is ovulation.

Your body: If the egg is not fertilized it will leave your body, and menstruation begins.
