Do you struggle with irritability, mood swings, bloat, water retention, sore breasts, insomnia, constipation prior to your period, heavy or painful periods? Are you dealing with low libido?

What is considered a normal menstrual cycle?

A normal menstrual cycle lasts 25-35 days, is regular and predictable, and is not overly painful or heavy. In a normal menstrual cycle, estrogen increases during the first half of the cycle, followed by an FSH/LH peak mid cycle (aka ovulation) with progesterone increasing during the second half of the cycle with its lowest levels being at the start of menstruation. It is important to mention that estrogen is a proliferatory hormone causing tissue growth while progesterone is anti-proliferatory counterbalancing the effects of estrogen.
