The Four Phases of Your Menstrual Cycle

We women work hard to stay on top of everything we do! We expect ourselves to have the same energy levels every single day of every single month but we can’t because our bodies function in a cyclical way. Did you know that there are four phases in a woman’s menstrual cycle? And did you know that the characteristics of these phases correspond to the seasons of the year? I bet you didn’t!

It all begins with the lovely bleeding phase, which can last from 3-7 days. The bleeding phase is very much like the winter season in that women usually have lower energy levels and typically want to ‘hibernate’ during this time.
