What is a period?

Having periods, also known as 'menstruating'  is a normal part of life for around half of the population. Menstruation prepares our bodies for the possibility of nurturing a new life. Whether or not this is something we want, or will go on to do, there is power in this. However, periods can also cause pain and other symptoms such as bloating or acne.

Check out the section Me, My Body, and My Periods, which has basic information about menstruation and gives advice about how to manage your periods. You can do interactive activities and watch a short video on what happens across a 28 menstruation cycle- so interesting.
