Menstrual Literacy 101 – Basic Overview
There are two phases of the menstrual cycle – follicular and luteal, with two subphases, menstruation at the start of the follicular phase and ovulation leading into the luteal phase.
Ovulation is the major event of the menstrual cycle, but one can still bleed every month without ovulating. It is possible to have a symptom-free and pain-free menstrual cycle, but most will experience a variety of symptoms that include cravings, fatigue, cramping, acne, bloating, irritability, depression, anxiety, heavy or scant bleeding, spotting and bleeding between cycles, anovulation, migraines, and more.
Perimenopause is the transition period from menstruation to menopause.
While it varies, most women begin to experience subtle changes in their menstrual cycle around 35 years of age with more obvious signs after 45. You are considered menopausal if you haven’t had an ovulatory cycle in 12 months or longer.
There’s absolutely no reason for any woman to have to go through life feeling like a victim to their menstrual cycles. You don’t have to suffer with painful periods or crazy-making symptoms. If you’d like to learn about the tools and resources available to you that can help you restore your body back to balance and make for a more pleasant transition to menopause, I invite you to join me.
