Menstrual Cycle Phases and Symptoms and What happens to a Woman's Body [VIDEO]
Every month, the uterus lining gets thicker to prepare for a fertilized egg. If the egg does not get fertilized, the lining is then released from the body in a form of blood through the vagina. What really happens to a woman's body during menstrual cycle phases and symptoms?
A normal menstrual cycle range from 21-36 days but usually, a woman's cycle should be approximately 28 days long. Most women often wonder what's going on inside their body during and after their period. Varied symptoms on a phase indication happen from one person to the other but most of the time, the vital reproductive organs are acting up in a different pace, the Mind Body Green said.
On the first two days a period starts, estrogen levels are at its lowest where one feels too tired and sleepy. This time also, contractions or period cramps are at hand so it is best advised to do some gentle exercises to ease the cramps.
Period ends right after the third to the fifth day and estrogen levels slowly increase. One may get back its lost energy and will re-gain stable emotions. Take advantage of this time to do more powerful exercises.
The body has its way of making a woman look glowing and fresh on the sixth-9th day of the cycle. When the estrogen levels are at its highest on day 10th-13th, the body releases pheromones which cause for a woman to feel horny all the time. During this time, one feels more sociable and outgoing. Try going out more and meet new people during this phase.
The menstrual cycle phases and symptoms truly do vary and while one's body is rejoicing before day 14 of the cycle, day 15 to 22 are the exact opposite, hormonal changes begin and estrogen levels begin to drop. A woman displays rapid mood swings and pimples start to break out. Skin is looking dry and body immunity is at its lowest.
At the start of the 23rd-25th day of the phase, progesterone levels are at its peak and women tend to suffer premenstrual symptoms (PMS) like depression, lower sex drive, and breast sores. On day 27-28, the cycle ends and repeats it again- month after month, the Cure Joy shares in an article.
