The Full form of MC is Menstrual Cycle. Every adolescent girl and boy who is about to enter puberty (the process of body changes whether in boys or girls, that cause a child’s body to become an adult body capable of reproduction) should know about menstruation and that it is a normal process for females to go through as their bodies prepare themselves for a potential pregnancy.

The MC (Menstrual Cycle) provides important body chemicals, called hormones, to keep a person healthy. A cycle is counted from the first day of 1 period to the first day of the next period. Generally, the average MC is 28 days long. In adults, the Menstrual Cycles can range anywhere from 21 to 35 days and from 21 to 45 days in young teens.

There are four phases of the MC (Menstrual Cycle), which is; menstruation, the follicular phase, ovulation and the luteal phase. Common menstrual problems include heavy or painful periods and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). A woman knowing when in the menstrual cycle is most likely to conceive can increase the chance of pregnancy. In Ovulation, each month one of the ovaries releases an egg and at the same time, hormonal changes prepare the uterus for pregnancy. This is a menstrual period.
