The desire to have children is independent of sex, sexuality or gender identity and there are many different paths to parenthood. Yet there remain many barriers for LGBTI+ people at work.

Essentially, the human menstrual cycle is a pattern of changes that occur within the ovary and uterus for the purposes of reproduction. These changes involve a complex interaction of hormones that allow for follicles to mature and eggs to be released (ovulation) before hormones are produced to nourish an embryo should fertilisation have occurred. If fertilisation hasn’t occurred, the uterine lining is shed through menstruation.
