Understanding the Menstrual Cycle

Understanding the Menstrual Cycle ; the menstrual cycle is the hormonal process a woman’s body goes through each month to prepare for a possible pregnancy. Menstruation occurs because the lining of the uterus has prepared itself for a possible pregnancy by becoming thicker and richer in blood vessels. If pregnancy does not occur, this thickened lining is shed, accompanied by bleeding in girls who have undergone puberty.

Regular and Irregular Periods

The normal length of a woman’s menstrual cycle is 28 days, but this varies between individuals. Irregular menstruation is when the length of the cycle is more than 35 days, or if the duration varies.

One thing is for sure when it comes to the cramps; its not advisable to take sugarly stuff during those times as sugar intake disrupts your body’s blood sugar levels, causing the levels to rise and the higher your blood sugar goes, the more severe your period symptoms may be.
