Why is it most animals do not have period and undergo estrus and we (humans) do not? :?: :?

The estrus cycle (also œstrus or estrous cycle) refers to the recurring physiologic changes that are induced by reproductive hormones in most mammalian placental females (humans and great apes are the only mammals who undergo a menstrual cycle instead). Estrus cycles start after puberty in sexually mature females and are interrupted by anestrous phases (see below: anestrus). Typically estrus cycles continue until death. Some animals may display bloody vaginal discharge, often mistaken for menstruation.

Do you want us (human being) to have breeding season like them (animals)? Do you want us to have an acceptance period which only in the estrus period we can mate? :)

Get an Apranax pill. :) (firstly go to a doctor and ask of course) It works. ;) (No, I'm not advertising :lol: )

It is usually because of the contraction.
It is a terrible pain, if you don't get a pill sometimes you just can not move. Not in all women but some of them experience it
