What is the Menstrual Cycle?
The menstrual cycle is divided into 3 phases: estrogen phase, progesterone phase, and menstrual phase.
This phase begins during the week following your menstrual period when levels of estrogen begin to rise. It lasts 7–12 days and usually ends in ovulation.
During this phase, you generally feel and look your best—no bloating, food cravings, or imbalanced moods.
Estrogen is also responsible, during this phase, for creating a clearer skin complexion and glossier hair. Your body metabolism is increased during this time; you might feel energized, attractive, and self-confident.
This phase begins during ovulation (days 14–16 of your menstrual cycle) and lasts about 2 weeks.
This is the time when the majority of premenstrual symptoms develop. Approximately 3–5 days before your “period” (the actual time of bleeding—shedding the accumulated lining preparation in the womb for pregnancy), your body goes into progesterone withdrawal, causing myriad symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
This phase begins the day you start bleeding and lasts 3–6 days while your uterus sheds its lining.
As a result, your uterus experiences mild contractions to force the release of the lining it prepared in case you became pregnant. Your emotions become more stable during this time, while your body might experience discomfort such as cramping, headaches, and body aches.
