The menstrual cycle is a 28-day cycle.

It takes a total of  approximately 28 days for an egg to drop from the ovary, travel  down the fallopian tube into the uterus and for the lining of the uterus to shed if the egg isn’t fertilized (the shedding of the lining is the  actual bleeding part). During this process, the uterine lining begins to thicken in order to support a growing fetus if an egg is fertilized by a sperm cell. During these 28 days, the body goes through a series of  changes that are noticeable if you pay attention. Just realize that the  menstrual cycle isn’t just the 7 days you don’t have access to your  lady’s vajayjay.
