[article]

The periodic changes in a woman’s body is associated with monthly bleeding and that is not the same for every woman.

This cyclic change is called as menstrual cycle. Basically, it is the shedding of the inner lining of the uterus that is given out by the body as menstrual blood.

There are 4 phases of menstrual cycle in 1 month:

  • Bleeding phase (day 0-8)– The beginning phase. this may last up to 8 days
  • Follicular phase (day 9-13) – In this phase, there is proliferation of uterine walls and stimulation of certain hormones
  • Ovulation phase (day 14) – This is the phase of fertilization
  • Luteal phase (day 15-28) – In this phase, the lining of your uterus normally gets thicker to prepare for a possible pregnancy. This lasts till the end of the every cycle and before the bleeding phase of the next.

However, these days don’t coincide every month. For a healthy woman, period dates don’t vary much but for some it may differ every other month. For some women the period cycle may exceeds the normal length (i.e. more than 35 days) and for some women, the cycle maybe shorter than normal (i.e. less than 15 days).

Why there is irregularities in the menses?

Things we do in our everyday life and the activities we perform have a great impact on our cycle. Some of the reasons for irregularity are:

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
