Advice for feeling good during the cycle.

Advice for feeling good during the cycle.

The more informed we are about the stages of our menstrual cycle, the better we can support our bodies! And because it's preferable to listen to our bodies rather than ignore their warning signals, let's revisit the stages of the menstrual cycle and discuss some simple tips for fully experiencing it.

Some tips for better managing the menstrual cycle.

Throughout the menstrual cycle, two hormones fluctuate significantly: estrogen and progesterone. These hormonal changes lead to successive upheavals in the body. Here are our week-by-week tips to avoid the physical and psychological discomforts associated with the menstrual cycle:

  • Week 1 : The discomfort experienced during this week, known as menstrual cramps, is due to the molecules that assist the uterine lining in shedding. Here are some tips to alleviate them. Heat has a very beneficial effect on menstrual pain. Therefore, do not hesitate to use a hot water bottle, especially at night. Indeed, heat has the effect of dilating blood vessels and relaxing muscles, thus reducing uterine cramps. If necessary, you can supplement these techniques with pain relievers, taking care to seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist. Particularly avoid aspirin, which thins the blood and therefore may intensify your period. Finally, keep moving. Being active helps to combat pain.

  • Week 2 : During this week, the estrogen levels are at their highest. This is the hormone of femininity, so it's the time when one can feel the most vibrant, the most desirable. Libido is often at its peak. Take advantage of this week of good mood and energy!

  • Week 3 : After ovulation, the level of progesterone begins to rise, while that of estrogen decreases. During this week, you may feel more gloomy, or more anxious. Some also report having a greater appetite. We advise you during this week to continue being active. Meditation and yoga are very good ways to channel the various emotions experienced.

  • Week 4 : 75% of women report experiencing premenstrual symptoms (P.M.S.), which are characterized by sore breasts, weight fluctuation, moments of sadness or irritation, etc... This week can therefore be challenging. We again advise you to use yoga and meditation to escape these symptoms, go out for a walk, breathe and stay active.
