Vasoconstriction: The blood vessels begin to narrow (vasoconstrict) limiting the amount of blood going to the endometrium(lining of the uterus which sheds) and peripheral places. this pattern alternates to open and close with feedback to your brain's thermostat (hypothalamus) which is next door to where the pituitary is undergoing hormone regulation. (changes) at the time of your menstrual cycle.
