How to harness period problems into period power

“Probably on her period alone!” How often have you heard this statement, or overheard this? It is all too common for men, even in relatively progressive societies, to ignore women’s thoughts, views, or rage simply on the basis of their willingness to bleed each month. The idea behind this is to make you somehow volatile, dangerous or outright crazy during periods. In some cultures, when women are menstruating, they are believed to ruin harvests, spoil milk or rot pickles.

  • Why your hormones sway like the seasons of the year;
  • Why you’re so dang horny sometimes;
  • Why tracking your cycle can change your life.

Because your hormones are sensitive to changes in stress, disease and life, your menstrual cycle is a measure of your general well-being and safety. Tracking it can help you identify when you succeed and fail in your process, and how to better adapt your life to suit your mood and energy. The phases of your process correspond to the four seasons: Winter, a time of rest and introspection is your phase. Spring brings new life as the hormone levels increase again, reaching its peak around ovulation, which is your summer. Your vitality and mood are falling again just before your fall phase, a time when taking care of yourself is of particular importance.
