When most think of menstrual cycles, the common narrative is, to avoid pregnancy or to get pregnant.
But this is so far from the truth and this needs to change.
For women, a healthy menstrual cycle and fertility is a sign of OVERALL body health.
If things are off with either one of the two your body gives you clear signs like:
- Painful periods
- Hormonal acne
- Endocrine issues
- Period migraines/headaches
- Gut and thyroid issues
- Heavy flows
- Multiple and big blood clots
If your body is not functioning optimally, it won’t see fertility or a period as being vital, so it will start shutting those functions down to “protect” the body and only keep the absolute vital functions running.
You don’t want to just survive, you want to thrive!
So next time you think your menstrual cycle is only for fertility, think twice, it’s just a part of all the amazing things it does for us.
