Menstrual cycle and Ovulation
The menstrual cycle refers to the monthly changes that occur in a woman's body as it prepares for the possibility of pregnancy. Estrogen and progesterone hormones regulate the menstrual cycle. Women have two ovaries, each containing a clutch of eggs. Hormones cause the eggs to mature and the uterine lining to thicken and spongy during the menstrual cycle. Hormones cause an ovary to release a mature egg during a menstrual cycle, which is known as ovulation, and the eggs pass through the fallopian tubes to the uterus. When there is a pregnancy, the uterus' thick lining is required; otherwise, the lining breaks down, and blood, nutrients, and other waste products are flushed out through the vaginal canal.
