Do you want to know about your Menstrual Cycle and it’s related symptoms?Let’s begin
When a girl become grow and hits her puberty,things start to change.But the puberty starts varies in different persons.It can start early at the age of 10 and late at least upto 16 is usually normal.At the time of puberty, body of females starts to produce a new set of harmones.
These harmones sends signals to body, some of them change the shape of female body and some may prepare the body for pregnancy every month.Each month,one of the ovarles releases an egg-a process called ovulation.
If ovulation takes place and the egg isn’t fertilized,the lining of the uterus sheds through thee vagina.This is menstrual period.
The Menstrual Cycle (MC) is a series of natural processes according to which our body goes through.
During the period cycle,the level of harmones rise and fall,depending on which stage of one’s menstruation are going on.
These harmones can also affect the mood and energy level of the body.
The length of a menstrual cycle can vary from 23 days to 35 days.
Every female has different body structure,so the length of menstrual cycle may be shorter or longer and not all menstrual cycles are regular and sometimes it might be light or heavy,painful or pain free, long or short.
How to track menstrual cycle?
To find out your normal menstrual cycle,start keeping a record of menstrual cycle on a calender.Begin by tracking the start date every month for several months in a row to identify the regularity of periods.The first day of period is the start of menstrual cycle. The main reason is,a female might experience menstrual cramps during the first days of periods is that the uterus lining breaks down and sheds.
After the last day of periods,the female body prepares for ovulation.Here the harmone is called follicle-stimulating harmone (FSH) stimulates the ovaries to produce a matured egg.
This maturing process estrogen,which makes the lining of the uterus thicken with nutrients and blood,so it will be able to provide the egg with the suppport it needs in case of pregnancy.
During ovulation,the matured egg is finally released into a fallopian tube and travels to the uterus.
The egg might survives for 12-24 hours.During this time,if it comes in the contact with sperm,it will be fertilized.
So it needs to keep in mind that during these days it is more chance to become pregnant for a woman.
After the egg has travelled down to fallopian tube it gets into the womb.
The body starts to produce a new harmone called progesterone.This harmone will make sure the uterus keeps building up it’s lining.
But if the egg is not fertilized,levels of estrogen and progrestarone drop.The uterus does not need to maintain the nutritous lining it build up so it starts to break it down.
The thick lining and blood that was built up during the menstrual cycle will leave the female body.
This is the process off menstruation and it means that new cycle begins.
During the period be sure to use a period product that should be comfortable with.
Try to use a pad that might be comfortable or menstrual cup made of medical grade silicon(no bleaches, perfumes or any other chemicals).
