Kliman said a normal endometrium is
like a surfer and a wave she has caught -- with the wave being the stroma and the surfer the glands."Just

it goes by too quickly, the endometrial glands
can be left behind if the stroma moves
too quickly," said Kliman.
"This is what happens in many women with

"Beyond the cervix is the central cavity of the uterus. Lining this cavity is the endometrium. The endometrium is like a lawn which the non-pregnant body mows once a month. The lawn trimmings flow out as menstrual blood if you did not get pregnant in the previous cycle."
"There are four days in a month when the endometrium is like velcro for a pregnancy,"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
