The heart is a pump and heart failure occurs when the heart muscle doesn’t pump blood as it should. It can be ongoing (chronic) or may start suddenly (acute). Between 20 to 30 per cent of all admissions in Nigerian hospitals today are related to heart diseases, notably heart failure.

 Currently, heart failure has no cure. The patient will need to take medicines and follow a treatment plan for the rest of his life. Despite treatment, symptoms may get worse over time. You may not be able to do many of the things that you did before you had heart failure.

Menstrual cycle occurs only in women. It can start from when they are young and ends only when they attain their menopausal stage. Menstruation is said to be the crying of the uterus when pregnancy didn't happen in a woman's body every month.

Menstrual cycle is the bleeding from the crumbling of the lining of the uterus which entails the culmination of a series of interlocked events that prepares the uterus to accept a fertilized egg. So when pregnancy did not take place in a woman, this prepared lining is shed from the uterus causing the entire cycle of events to take place.

The main controller of these events is the hypothalamus, which is a part of the brain that contains a number of small nuclei with different functions that is linked to the nervous system to the endocrine system via pituitary gland. So this hypothalamus which is part of the brain is affected by emotions and upsets and its demonstrated by the fact that menstruation may cease after a particularly strong emotional upset by the girl or woman.
