The Science Behind Menstrual Cycles 

The menstrual cycle is a complex and intricate process that occurs in women. Understanding the science behind menstrual cycles is crucial for managing and optimizing our periods. In this section, we will delve into the four different energy levels experienced over a 24-hour period and compare them to the four different phases experienced over a 28-day menstrual cycle.

Our bodies operate in energy cycles that follow a natural rhythm. Throughout a 24-hour period, we experience varying levels of energy and alertness. These energy levels can be categorized into four distinct phases: the morning peak, the afternoon slump, the evening recovery, and the night-time rest. Each phase serves a purpose and contributes to our overall well-being.

Similarly, our menstrual cycles consist of four phases: menstruation, the follicular phase, ovulation, and the luteal phase. Menstruation occurs when the uterine lining is shed, marking the start of a new cycle. The follicular phase follows, during which the body prepares for ovulation by producing follicles and increasing estrogen levels. Ovulation happens when an egg is released from the ovaries, signaling the most fertile phase of the cycle. Finally, the luteal phase occurs after ovulation, characterized by increased progesterone levels and the preparation of the uterus for possible implantation.

Understanding the correlation between our daily energy levels and our menstrual phases can help us navigate our cycles with greater ease. By recognizing which phase we are in, we can adjust our activities, self-care practices, and expectations accordingly. It allows us to honor our bodies' natural rhythms and tailor our lifestyle choices to support optimal well-being.

Every individual's menstrual cycle is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. By seeking personalized guidance and support, we can gain a deeper understanding of our bodies and make informed decisions about managing our menstrual cycles. Stay tuned to discover a holistic approach that focuses on treating the underlying causes rather than just the symptoms.

The Four Energy Levels and Four Menstrual Phases

Receiving advice and information that is specific to one's own body is crucial for managing menstrual cycles effectively. Unfortunately, mainstream sources often provide generalized information that may not apply to women. This can lead to confusion, frustration, and a lack of progress in addressing period problems.

To overcome this challenge, it's essential to seek out resources that recognize and cater to your unique experiences. By accessing information that aligns with our specific needs, we can make informed decisions about our health and well-being. This personalized approach empowers us to leverage the power of our periods to end period problems and improve our lives.

 In the next section, we will explore the current state of medical research and the limitations of waiting for medical solutions to alleviate PMS symptoms. Stay tuned for valuable insights and an alternative approach that focuses on treating the underlying causes rather than just the symptoms. Together, we can revolutionize the way we approach our menstrual cycles and create a positive impact on our lives.

The Importance of Understanding and Managing Menstrual Imbalances

By accessing information that aligns with our specific needs, we can make informed decisions about our health and well-being. This personalized approach empowers us to leverage the power of our periods to end period problems and improve our lives. Together, we can revolutionize the way we approach our menstrual cycles and create a positive impact in our lives.

In this section, we will discuss seven signs of a normal menstrual cycle and how to identify potential menstrual disorders. By recognizing these imbalances and taking appropriate steps, we can work towards achieving optimal menstrual health and overall well-being.

Sign #1: No Unusual Odors

You should not notice any unusual or strong odors on your period, including odors like fish. While this is understood to be commonplace during periods, it is actually not normal and can signal menstrual dysfunction.

Sign #2: Length of Menstrual Shedding

A normal menstrual cycle typically involves menstrual shedding lasting between 2 to 7 days. This duration allows for the healthy shedding of the uterine lining without excessive bleeding. If your menstrual shedding lasts shorter than 2 days or longer than 7 days, it may indicate a menstrual disorder that requires attention.

Sign #3: Flow and Intensity

A normal menstrual flow should be light to mild, without excessive clotting or heavy bleeding. Heavy flow can be a sign of hormonal imbalances, fibroids, or other underlying health issues. If you consistently experience heavy flow, it is important to seek sustainable solutions to address the root causes, rather than the symptoms. 

Sign #4: Absence of Pain and Discomfort

Pain and discomfort during menstruation should not be considered normal. While some mild cramping or discomfort might be experienced, severe pain or debilitating symptoms are not typical. If you experience intense pain or prolonged discomfort during your menstrual cycle, it is advisable to  identify and address the underlying causes. You can also embody holistic practices to ease your period pain and step into your power.

Sign #5: Regularity and Consistency

A normal menstrual cycle occurs at consistent intervals and should last 28 days. Having a regular cycle allows for the proper functioning of hormonal and physiological processes. If your cycle consistently falls outside this range or shows irregular patterns, it may indicate a menstrual disorder that requires further investigation.

Sign #6: No Spotting Between Periods

Spotting between periods is not normal, and can be a sign of menstrual dysfunction. You should not experience spotting between periods. This could be a sign that something is out of balance within your body. 

Sign #7: Regular Length of Cycle

A regular menstrual cycle should hover around 28 days. The medical industry has taught us that cycles lasting anywhere from 21 days to 35 days is normal. However, here at Steady + Free, our case studies prove that people experiencing pain-free and PMS-free menstrual cycles all have complete menstrual cycles that last 27-28 days.

Embracing Menstrual Empowerment: Taking Charge of Your Cycle

In this section, we will explore the concept of menstrual empowerment and how it can transform your relationship with your menstrual cycle. By taking charge of your cycle and embracing your body's natural rhythms, you can unlock a world of possibilities and live your life to the fullest.

Menstrual empowerment is about reclaiming your power and embracing your menstrual cycle as a source of strength and wisdom.By understanding the science behind your menstrual cycle and the phases you go through, you can harness the power of each phase to support your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Each phase of your menstrual cycle offers unique energy levels and qualities that can be leveraged to enhance different areas of your life.

During the follicular phase, which occurs after menstruation, you may feel an increase in energy and creativity. We also call the follicular phase our Soldier phase, and this is a great time to start new projects or set intentions for the month ahead. The ovulatory phase, what we call the Peacemaker phase, is characterized by heightened communication skills and a desire for connection. It's a perfect time for networking or engaging in social activities.

The luteal phase brings a sense of grounding and introspection. Queen Phase is the luteal phase's embodied name. This is a time to focus on self-care and reflection. Lastly, the menstrual phase, or the Priestess phase, is a time for rest and renewal. Listen to your body's need for rest and nourishment during this phase. 

Taking care of yourself during your menstrual cycle is crucial for maintaining balance and well-being. Create a self-care routine that aligns with each phase of your cycle. This can include activities such as gentle exercise, meditation, journaling, or nourishing your body with healthy foods. Pay attention to any specific symptoms or imbalances you experience during each phase and customize your self-care routine accordingly.

There are various products and resources available that can support your menstrual empowerment journey. Invest in high-quality menstrual products that prioritize comfort and sustainability. Explore books, podcasts, and online communities dedicated to menstrual empowerment and holistic health.
