About Missed Period

Menstruation is the periodic shedding of the uterine lining (endometrium). It starts (menarche) at or before sexual maturity, maturation, in females of certain mammal species, and ceases at or near menopause (commonly considered the end of a female's reproductive life). The periodicity of menstruation gives rise to commonly used euphemisms like 'period' and 'monthly'. This article focuses on human menstruation. Women typically stop menstruating if they conceive or if they are breastfeeding. Menstruation lasts from puberty until menopause among non-pregnant women.
