Map Your Menstrual Cycle Day-by-Day : When am I most fertile? How to calculate your ovulation cycle ?
There's more to your menstrual cycle than just your period. It's actually a month-long roller-coaster ride with lots of ups and downs. But as the lovely Dr. Melissa Lem explains, there is a science to this seeming madness. Herein, she breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly of that time of the month.
Cycle Chart :
Note: We're using a 28-day calendar, but it's completely normal for your menstrual cycle to last anywhere from 21 to 35 days.
Day 1 of your period marks the first day of your menstrual cycle. Many women believe their cycle starts at the end of their period, but this is not the case. On Day 1 of your cycle, estrogen levels are at an all-time low. Estrogen is a good thing; it's associated with increased activity of serotonin, a feel-good chemical in the brain.
The average period lasts about five days — although anywhere from two to seven days is considered normal — and yields about 35 millilitres or just over an ounce of liquid.
As your estrogen levels slowly increase, you may feel more relaxed than you have over the last few days when PMS symptoms may have been wreaking havoc with your emotions.
Day 7 menstrual cycle
By Day 7, your period is probably gone, and your mood should have returned to normal. In fact, you may be feeling a surge of energy as your ovaries release more and more estrogen. Higher levels of estrogen also make you feel more sociable, optimistic and motivated.
Estrogen levels will continue to rise from Days 8-11, and by Days 12-13, they're at an all-time high. These high levels of estrogen give you more confidence, make your skin glow, and probably make you feel flirtier. It isn't a coincidence: These high estrogen levels set off a surge of hormones that result in ovulation on Day 14.
