The dance of the hormones in the menstrual cycle

How hormones effect your life

The dance of hormones throughout the month control the ebb and flow of your menstrual cycle. How they interplay can have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself, your weight, your relationship with others, your social life and even your sleep. The impact is so wide reaching, that they can have a dramatic effect on the quality of your life. In fact, some women may have days of pain, fatigue, uncontrollable fluctuating emotions, such heavy periods they cannot leave the house, hot flushes, migraines and acne to name a few

For approximately 30 – 40 years of life, most women experience a menstrual cycle. This is controlled by reproductive hormones, estrogen, progesterone, LH and FSH. They mature your reproductive organs at puberty and regulate your menstrual cycle. In fact, these hormones affect your ability to fall pregnant and have a baby. They influence your mood and emotions. They even effect where fat is deposited on your bodies! To understand how the menstrual cycle works and how hormones effect your life is the first step in healing problems  that arise from an imbalance in the reproductive cycle.
