The menstrual cycle is a natural process that happens in a woman's body, usually every 28 days, but it can vary from person to person. Understanding your menstrual cycle can help you know what's normal for your body and when to seek medical advice.

What is the Menstrual Cycle?

The menstrual cycle is the series of changes a woman's body goes through to prepare for a possible pregnancy. It starts on the first day of your period and ends the day before your next period begins. The cycle is controlled by hormones, mainly estrogen and progesterone, which are produced by the ovaries.

What is the Menstrual Cycle

Phases of the Menstrual Cycle:

Menstrual Phase: This is when you have your period. Your body sheds the lining of the uterus, which results in bleeding that usually lasts 3-7 days.

Follicular Phase: After your period ends, your body starts preparing for ovulation. Hormone levels rise, causing the lining of the uterus to thicken.

Ovulation: Around the middle of your cycle (usually around day 14 in a 28-day cycle), an egg is released from one of your ovaries. This is when you're most fertile and can get pregnant.

Luteal Phase: After ovulation, the empty follicle in the ovary produces progesterone, which helps prepare the uterus for a possible pregnancy. If pregnancy doesn't occur, hormone levels drop, and the menstrual cycle starts again.

What's Normal and What's Not:

It's normal for menstrual cycles to vary in length, flow, and symptoms from person to person. However, certain changes may indicate a problem:

Irregular periods: If your periods are consistently irregular or if there's a sudden change in your cycle length, it's worth discussing with your doctor.

Abnormal bleeding: Heavy bleeding (menorrhagia), bleeding between periods, or bleeding after menopause should be investigated.

Severe pain: While some cramping is normal, severe pain during your period (dysmenorrhea) could be a sign of an underlying condition like endometriosis or fibroids.

Understanding your menstrual cycle is essential for maintaining overall reproductive health. While some variations are normal, it's crucial to pay attention to changes in your cycle and seek medical advice if you have concerns.

Dear friends and fellow warriors,

I am deeply honoured and humbled to receive the Cancer Warrior Award from Prameya News.

This recognition fuels my dedication to the relentless pursuit of a brighter, cancer-free future. Thomas Edison once said, "When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You haven't." This quote resonates with the spirit of our shared journey in the fight against cancer.

As a Cancer Warrior, I am committed to keeping the flame of hope alive. The search for effective treatments and innovative approaches will continue, driven by the unwavering belief that every possibility must be explored. Together, let us press on, determined to find answers and make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

Thank you, Pema, for this honour. It inspires me to redouble my efforts in the fight against cancer, and I am grateful to stand alongside fellow warriors on this challenging yet hopeful journey.
