Without exaggeration, the life of every woman depends on her menstrual cycle. The natural functioning of the endocrine system and the changes in the hormonal background that it regulates directly affect not only the ability to conceive a child but also well-being and even mood.
The simplest and most convenient way of controlling your menstrual cycle is by installing a special application on your phone that will help you calculate the days you are ovulating and plan any sexual activity.
We have also prepared some material explaining in detail what exactly happens in your body on different days of your menstrual cycle.
The beginning of menstruation is the first day of the cycle. It is characterized by a sharp decrease of hormones produced by the ovaries, as a result of which the mechanism of endometrium rejection - the lining of the inside of the uterus - turns on. Simultaneously, a dominant follicle begins to form in one of the ovaries. After that, a new ovule capable of fertilization develops. Sometimes, during one cycle, a few dominant follicles develop, which means there is a high likelihood of multiple gestations.
