Ability to get pregnant per menstrual cycle and give birth to an offspring.

First period
The first menstrual bleeding is also called menarche. The beginning of menstruation takes place during puberty.

Follicular phase
The first phase of the menstrual cycle in which the body prepares for fertilisation of the mature egg. The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) increases during this phase, which eventually enables ovulation.

Free bleeding
During menstruation, period products such as tampons, pads or menstrual cups are voluntarily not used. The blood is therefore not collected by a foreign object either inside or outside the body. It is possible to feel when blood is coming by consciously perceiving one's own body. When free bleeding, the menstrual blood is finally discharged directly on the toilet by relaxing the pelvic floor.
