Go With The Flow


 Have you ever wondered what is happening inside your body before your periods begin?

What leads to the outpouring of blood?

How does it happen?

Curiosity doesn’t kill the cat; in fact, the cat flourishes. Let us indulge your curiosity today and answer all of your questions related to your menstrual cycle days.

 Every woman’s body during her prime or reproductive years, meaning between puberty and menopause, goes through a lot of changes to make itself ready for a potential pregnancy that might happen. These changes are called a menstrual cycle or an ovarian cycle.

A number of phases are involved in this process. Let’s go through these period phases together.


There are four phases of the menstrual cycle that a woman experiences. The duration of all of these menstrual cycle phases may differ from woman to woman. They are as follows:

  • Menstrual phase
  • Follicular phase
  • Ovulation phase
  • Luteal phase



The menstruation stage is the first phase of the entire process. The menstrual phase of the menstrual cycle is also when you get your periods. It generally lasts between 3-7 days an average.

In this stage, because you don’t get pregnant, an egg from the earlier cycle is not fertilised. The uterus had a comfortable place prepared for the baby that it was expecting, with its inner walls lined with blood tissues. Since this lining is no longer needed, it sheds itself through your vagina in the form of liquid blood and blood tissues.

You might experience symptoms of a menstrual period a few days before it arrives. Some of them are:

  • Menstrual cramps
  • Fatigue
  • Sensitive breasts
  • Bloating
  • Backaches
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Food cravings, etc.


You can take some over-the-counter pills for most of these symptoms. If the pain still remains or becomes too hard for you to handle or interrupts your daily life and routine, consult a doctor as there might be an underlying issue that is causing you to experience these extreme symptoms.

When your periods do get around, here is what to do. Pamper and indulge yourself; make sure your periods are as comfortable as they can get. Or leave this up to us!
