All women of childbearing age experience a menstrual cycle, made up of bleeding days or menstruation, fertile days, and other, non-fertile days.
Different women experience different cycle lengths, but variation is normal.
For a woman with a regular cycle of 26-32 days, the fertile day window ranges from 8th to the 19th day of the cycle.
Monthly bleeding, or menstruation, is normal, and makes it possible for a women to get pregnant.
If a woman has sexual relations during the fertile days of her cycle without using a family planning method, she is at risk for getting pregnant.
“Though we know some things about menstruation, we did not know for sure. As we played it though, we started realizing how important it was to our life and we were eager to play more games.”

“Even as a woman, I hadn’t understood what happened in a menstrual cycle. But I learned a lot from the game. I found out how many days of bleeding is normal. From the 8th-19th day, there is a high chance of pregnancy. I didn’t know this before.”
IRH is in the process of developing an app that reflects the activities and information associated with the Menstrual Cycle Game, but in the form of an interactive game for adolescents. This page will be updated as more information is finalized.
