How much does Duke Campus really know about menstruation and reproductive health?



can you name three birth control methods like there's one like embody an IUD plan being birth control the same thing oh hi I'm Khushi and I'm Marwat and we're both interns at the Center for global women's health technologies at Duke and today on campus we're gonna find out how much people know about menstrual health today I'm the guest expert for the college campaign and I'm here to bust some myths about reproductive health so we're gonna test your knowledge on menstral health okay the first question is why do women bleed on their period well that would be I'm okay so first of all I'm not I don't have a medical background well I've got the claim there about how I to get rid of bacteria going through what's going on with their body when it comes to I'll leave it at that that's all okay throughout the month the lining in the uterus will get thicker in preparation for an embryo however if there is no fertilized egg then the lighting just sheds itself it'll just shed out of the uterus and dissolve into a pool of blood at the bottom of the uterus and so when menstruation starts it's when that Blood starts to flow out of the uterus and so what menstrual blood is is just the disintegrated uterine lining and how much blood does a woman shed on her period that I'd do that now like two leaders it depends a quarter of a leader is six to eight teaspoons granted everybody is different that's the average how long does menstruation which is the bleeding period last say for a week a month actually no a month maybe a week or two like five to seven days and what is the average length of a woman's menstrual cycle oh I learned this in my junior junior high school teach me like every other month or three weeks it's about 28 or 29 days perfect relation which is the bleeding part of the period can last from anywhere to 2 to 6 days some people it can last a little longer that's just the average and the menstrual cycle so the whole the whole month of ovulation fertile window and menstruation can the average length is around 28 to 45 days I'm gonna ask you to hold your hand out mm-hmm I'm gonna play something in it okay what is this have you ever heard a tampon no I have no idea like my mother would never heard us his inference of me here what is this a tampon I'm hoping you to like stop bleeding absorb flow yes like is there a trick question no no no okay and can you name two other products available for period management tampon and then there's pads mm-hmm they're the same they're not a maxi pad and awesome I don't use it but there's some cup the D because yeah pads tampons but you can put inside the Diva Cup a Diva Cup basically is a little silicone cup that you can fold and then insert into the vagina and it pops open and creates an airtight suction and it catches the menstrual blood as it floats down there's also disposable menstrual cups these sponges as well as reusable pads that are cloth that you can wash over and over again and use can a woman get pregnant on her period I want to say no yes people can get pregnant on their period and the reason for this is because sperm can survive in the internal reproductive system for about three days and so if you are exposed to sperm towards the end of your period and you have an early ovulation then sperm that sperm can come into contact with an egg and it can implant itself and you can become pregnant the chances are low though and can you name three other birth control methods and B Plan B in birth control the same thing a contraception pill an IUD and also condoms in China about 20 years ago we have policy sets we make out a gave birth to just one child yeah yeah the one that goes up you I forgot what it's called yeah me too the thing that goes like the pill basically what the pill does usually is just tricks your body into thinking it's already pregnant so you don't ovulate anymore and so if there's no egg present then there's no chance of fertilization the IUD which there's two types hormonal which tricks your body into thinking you're pregnant and the copper IUD which is non-hormonal the copper acts as a spermicide so it effectively just rips the heads off from the tails the copper ion will and the patch the shot the implant which is implanted into the arm can last for five to ten years and is continuously releases progesterone and other hormones and a whole host of others that may not be as popular so again my name is Vaishnava subaru i'm a member of the valley aunties which is reproductive health channel linked in the description below I hope this video has helped to clarify some misconceptions about the internal reproductive system thank you so much for watching the video and please continue to support the Calla campaign hi I'm Riley today why are you Riley
