Menstruation is that time of the month when most women are completely on the edge emotionally and physically. The surge of hormones creates a roller coaster ride that difficult to explain and control. But no two women share a similar experience and even the intensities vary every month for each one. Whether to seek medical opinion and pop those pills is always a dilemma. These medications provide temporary relief but create more chaos in the already complex hormone cycles that can disrupt cycles even further, sometimes permanently.
Every woman has a cycle that is unique to her. Although a normal menstrual cycle could be as short as 22 days, others can be as long as 36 days, and hardly anyone has a cycle that lasts exactly 28 days. What’s important is that your normal shifts don’t become abnormal. For some women that’s skipping an entire month or more without being pregnant.
