How are you? This is me again, Lady!
Last Friday we started our new chapter on biology class. Well, it's about human reproductive system and I found out that, this chapter is kinda interesting because it's related our body and I'm so interested with anything that have connection with our body! Hoho, but........ Some of my classmates like, ummm, yeah, you know what I mean -_- especially for the boys.
And, from this topic, I just knew that........ Female menstrual is caused by the wall of endometrium that breaks down and that's the reason why for the girls, we feel pain almost in every month.
Furthermore,There is also hormone called estrogen. Let's find out more about this hormone!
Estrogen is a hormone that comprises a group of compounds, including estrone, estradioland estriol. It is the main sex hormone in women and is essential to the menstrual cycle. Although estrogen exists in men as well as women, it is found in higher amounts in women, especially those capable of reproducing.
Estrogen contributes to the development of secondary sex characteristics, which are the defining differences between men and women that don’t relate to the reproductive system. In women, these characteristics include breasts, a widened pelvis, and increased amounts of body fat in the buttock, thigh and hip region. Estrogen also contributes to the fact that women have less facial hair and smoother skin then men.
Estrogen is an essential part of a woman’s reproductive process. It regulates the menstrual cycle and prepares the uterus for pregnancy by enriching and thickening the endometrium. Two hormones, the luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), help to control how the body produces estrogen in women who ovulate.
Estrogen is manufactured mostly in the ovaries, by developing egg follicles. In addition, estrogen is produced by the corpus luteum in the ovary, as well as by the placenta. The liver, breasts and adrenal glands may also contribute to estrogen production, although in smaller quantities.
Have you experienced premenstrual syndrome (PMS)? It's because your estrogen hormones decrease!
During the lesson last week, I just realized how difficult the struggle of a woman to get a descent: (
So, to all people out there, DON'T ever throwing away your children....
Anyway, happy fasting to all moslems in the world! :D
