Exploring the Female Menstrual Cycle 

The female menstrual cycle encompasses four distinct phases—Menstruation, Follicular, Ovulation, and Luteal—each integral to the body's reproductive process. These phases, characterized by significant hormonal fluctuations, prepare the body for potential pregnancy or the onset of a new cycle.


A Closer Look at the Menstrual Cycle:

✦ Menstruation: The shedding of the uterine lining, marking the start of a new cycle.

✦ Follicular Phase: The period leading up to ovulation, characterized by follicle growth and preparation for egg release.

✦ Ovulation: The release of an egg from the ovary, signaling peak fertility.

Luteal Phase: Post-ovulation, when the body prepares for either pregnancy or the start of a new cycle.


An integral part of your menstrual cycle is the complex interplay of hormones, each signaling your body to prepare and transition smoothly from one phase to the next.


✦ Estrogen: This hormone helps build up the uterine lining, preparing for potential pregnancy. It's responsible for the feelings of energy and well-being often experienced in the first half of the menstrual cycle.

✦ Progesterone: Progesterone maintains the uterine lining. After ovulation, its levels increase, and it's responsible for the more subdued and reflective feelings during the second half of the cycle.

✦ FSH and LH: FSH stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles. LH triggers ovulation. These hormones fluctuate throughout the cycle, contributing to the body's readiness for each phase.

Below is a quick recap detailing the hormonal fluctuations throughout the cycle, helping you visualize and understand each phase.


Introduction to the Menstrual Phase:

The menstrual phase, a period of renewal lasting typically 3-7 days, is when energy and hormone levels are at their lowest. This calls for rest and nourishment, particularly important due to blood loss associated with the shedding of the uterine lining. Despite the challenges of this phase, it often brings heightened intuition and a capacity for focused, independent work.

Embracing the menstrual phase with understanding aligns us with our body's natural rhythm. This time becomes a period of introspective empowerment and physical renewal. Bison Liver plays a supportive role in this journey, ensuring that your body has the resources it needs during this foundational phase of the menstrual cycle.


A Ritual of Self-Care

During the menstrual phase, your body experiences unique needs, especially during these more tiring days.Embracing intentional self-care that's attuned to these fluctuations can provide significant support. Here's a brief guide on simple yet effective ways to care for your body during menstruation:

Exercise: Pay attention to how your body feels. If you're up for it, opt for restorative movements like yoga. The aim is to be gentle and nurturing, allowing your body to move without strain.

Nutrition: Choose foods that not only nourish your body but also help alleviate menstrual symptoms. Include in your diet:

  • Carrots, cucumbers, and beets: These are not only nutrient-rich but also hydrating, helping to replenish fluids.
  • Bananas and kiwis: These fruits are full of essential vitamins and can aid in easing menstrual cramps.

Seed Cycling: This practice involves adding pumpkin and flax seeds to your diet during menstruation. These seeds are known for their hormone-balancing properties and provide essential nutrients that align with your cycle's requirements.

Remember, listening to your body and providing it with what it needs during the menstrual phase is a form of self-love and respect. By tuning into your body's signals and responding with appropriate self-care, you nurture a deeper connection with yourself, paving the way for a more balanced and comfortable menstrual experience.


As we gain a deeper understanding of our body's diligent work during our period, let's shift from viewing it as an inconvenience to appreciating it as a natural process. In doing so, we not only honor the efforts of our body but also learn to listen attentively to its needs, ensuring we provide the nurturing care it rightfully deserves.


Let the Goddess in you rise and shine.
