A recent article offers some insight on the evolutionary role of menstruation: The evolution of menstruation Emera D, Romero R, Wagner G., Department of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22057551

  • allows females to prepare for pregnancy without any signal from the fetus. THe article suggests that this is necessary to ensure that both mother and fetus get adequate nutrition.

Another reason is - the lining of the uterus is also a sensor for fetal quality, detecting chromosomal abnormalities and allowing them to be spontaneously aborted early. (from PZ Meyers, http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2011/12/21/why-do-women-menstruate/)

Some say menstruation is a monthly vital sign. See Gloria Steinem's classic essay: If Men Could Menstruate http://www.mum.org/ifmencou.htm

Well, I think if there is a Goddess, I think She designed us this way in order to release toxins from our bodies every cycle. The Chinese call a period "heavenly water," and they call the month after delivering a baby "golden month." They say that if a woman has many health problems before having a baby, then golden month is the time to fix them by proper nourishment and rest after a release of many toxins as well as the baby. I think periods are a mini version of this. I bet there is an equivalent in men, too.
