The two major female sex hormones in the body are oestrogen & progesterone, produced in a pair of organs in the abdomen, called ovaries.
The ovaries start producing large quantities of oestrogen when a girl reaches about 12 years of age, developing her into a normal young woman.
The commencement of menstruation at this time heralds the reproductive phase of her life, when she can have children.
Menstruation is often accompanied by headache, body ache, mood swings, acne, bloating, fatigue, backaches, sore breasts, depression and stress. However, some of us may absolutely feel no side effects of our periods.
