The Curse? Lunette Thinks Not.
Nicknamed “The Curse” for decades, menstruation has gotten a bad rap. At Lunette, they don’t buy it. Sure, periods can bring some discomfort but that doesn’t qualify it as a curse. Think about it. Periods don’t restrict your life, unless you let it. Unlike the old days, you can do anything during your period. PMS? Those blues or irritability can pinpoint issues that need attention to bring about resolution or better life balance. That’s a good thing.
The truth is, menstruation is natural, organic and healthy. Your period? Not a curse – simply renewal.
The Menstrual Cycle: How it Works
Menstruation, commonly referred to as a period, is a normal occurrence for every healthy woman. However, first onset, symptoms leading up to each period, its duration, and the overall experience, are unique to each woman.
Menstruation marks the beginning of puberty for young girls. This happens approximately between the ages of 9 to 16 years of age. During menstruation, which typically lasts between 2 and 7 days, the lining of the uterus is shed and passes through the cervix to the vagina and out of the body as menstrual blood.
The total amount of blood that flows during an average period seems to be so much more than it actually is; it’s usually only about 4 teaspoons. But the range is between 1 and 4 tablespoons. The consistency of the blood flow is usually thick and bright red during heaviest flow. It is not unusual to see clots during this time. The thickest and most viscous flow happens as the richest part of the lining literally un-knits from the uterine wall. Gradually, as the flow progresses, it thins and becomes browner color.
The menstrual cycle begins on the first day of the period and ends on the first day of the following period. The cycle lasts an average of 28 days but can range from 21 to 45 days. Again, all women are different and wherever you may fall within the range is normal for you.
