Journey of a baby from a fetus to a beautiful woman

Did you know that the sex of the child is actually determined by the sperm of the father? Sperm carries the genetic blueprint for the gender. The gender of the baby is determined at the moment of fertilization of the sperm and the egg. Each of us - Male or female started as an embryo, developed from the fertilization of the sperm and the egg. Both the internal and external sex organs are formed early in pregnancy and by the fifth month of pregnancy, if the baby growing is a female, then all the eggs she will ever produce in her life ( around five million of them)

are already formed in her ovaries. Amazing isn’t it? It is said that women undergo approximately 400 ovulations in her fertile life. According to studies, Although all of the eggs have the same potential to be fertilized, very few of them ripen.  Most of them are thus never used and gradually degenerate. if the sex organs of the female fetus are exposed to any toxic substances during this period, it could lead to menstrual disorders or infertility later in her adulthood.

it is said all the milestones in female babies are reached earlier than male babies. In early school years too, girls generally learn to read faster. At the age of 11 to 12 with the onset of puberty, the breasts swelling, the spurt in growth and female distribution of body hair occurs. Soon menstruation could begin.

You must have seen that these days girls are reaching menarche( the first time the girl gets her periods) is much earlier, then it was probably 2 to 3 decades ago. This could be related to increasingly, nutritious diet, and lifestyle. Weight seems to play a role in early menarche. It is seen that menstruation is often delayed in young female athletes due to the lesser proportion of body fat.

Each menstrual cycle can vary from 4 to 6 weeks. The cycle begins by the release of hormones from the pituitary glands, a tiny gland situated at the base of the brain. Menstruation may sometimes be delayed or cease entirely when women experience anxiety, grief, or heavy stress.
