It is widely known that menstruation is a cycle of a female body, occurring every lunar month, being perfectly fine-tuned with nature. At this time in a month, the uterus sheds its lining from the body, coming out in the form of excessive bleeding. In religious interpretations, menstruation is perceived as ‘the curse of Eve’, because when Eve defied God in the garden of Eden, all women after her are cursed with bleeding every month and painful childbirth.
