Health lesson 4: Menstrual Cycle 
Ida started with reviews from the previous lessons.Good enough the majority remembered what was taught. After the revision, Ida asked a question about the topic "menstrual cycle " Why do women go through this period? Some gave their answers saying that it is a curse from God , others said that is the only way for a woman to know that she is pregnant. Ida reminded them that it's also a way the body cleans itself. She continued telling the community the normal menstrual flow. The normal length of menstrual bleeding is four to six days. Women are different and the periods differ. Others have a 28 days calendar while others have 21, 35. For the first few years after menstruation begins,long cycles are common. If you have a regular28-day cycle you will start your period every four weeks. If you have a 22-day cycle you will have a period about every three weeks. The average period lasts for three to four days, but it can be shorter or longer ranging from between one to seven days.
