The period of the month

Hello, dear readers! So, today I am going to make a post about that period of the month.

It is well known that the female human body, in its complexity has go through certain changes in every period of the month.

During that time of the month and before, with a week or two the body is affected by diverse symptoms which interact with comportment and personality.

What is the menstrual cycle and what happens in the body

Period/ Menstrual cycle prepares the body for pregnancy every month. The menstrual cycle is controlled by hormones, like estrogen and progesterone.

There are 2 ovaries, and each one holds a group of eggs, very small to observe by naked eye. During the menstrual cycle, hormones make the eggs in your ovaries mature — when an egg is mature, that means it’s ready to be fertilized by a sperm cell. These hormones also make the lining of your uterus thick and spongy.

So if your egg does get fertilized, it has a place to land and start a pregnancy. This lining is made of tissue and blood, like almost everything else inside our bodies and it has lots of nutrients to help a pregnancy grow.

Behind the beautiful story

Menstruation is bleeding from the vagina that happens about once a month, as a normal part of the menstrual cycle. It is also known as having a period.

Periods start about two weeks after you ovulate. The lining of the uterus falls away and, along with some blood, flows out through the vagina. Periods can be light or heavy, and the blood can range from bright red to dark brown. You might also notice small clots.

Symptoms of menstruation include: nausea, cramps, muscle aches, sleep deprivation, dizziness, headaches, constipation/ diarrhea, acne, tiredness, mood changes. The symptoms vary from one organism to another.

Best advises to follow on period time

Usually, in cases of strong pain the best ailment is actually an over the counter medicine like Ibuprofen which can ease muscle aches, cramps, headaches, and breast pain.

Also, a heating pad or a bottle with warm water can help lessen out the pain, relieving cramps and muscle aches. Massaging your abdomen can also decrease pain.

Hydrate. Drinking water is important because staying hydrated can help keep headaches apart and prevent compulsive eating before your period.

Eat healthy. It is important during period to eat light but nutritious meals.

Respect your sleeping hours. It is necessary to sleep at least 7 hours per night, as not sleeping enough can also cause food cravings and compulsive eating, and trigger headaches.

Eat healthy. Make sure you stay away two weeks before period from foods rich in salt, sugar and also reduce caffeine intake and alcohol.
