Demystifying Medicine Video

This video deconstructs the mechanism of the menstrual cycle, describes what hormones are involved in the menstrual cycle, how they work and how they mediate the 3 phases of the menstrual cycle. It also explains each phase throughout the 28-day cycle and what is happening in the endometrium during that time. The goal of this video is to help men and women understand what is going on in a woman's body during the menstrual cycle. This video was created with the help of Hana and Rebecca of Bleed Free McMaster, a club on McMaster campus dedicated to tackling menstrual stigmas and barriers.
