Men’s Guide to Understanding Women during Their Menstrual Periods

Menstruation signifies that a woman is ready to bear life. It is during a woman’s fertile years that she will experience her monthly menstrual periods. This age bracket may range from ages 12 to 50. However, this condition can be one of the unpleasant aspects of her life.

Almost all women experience pain and discomfort during their menstrual periods. Accompanied by symptoms such as cramps and bloating, menstruation is a time of inconvenience and discomfort.

Menstruation is a process that begins when the woman’s ovaries release an egg into the uterus. If the egg is not fertilized, it is expelled from her body by a process known as menstrual flow. One of the first signs of menstruation is lower abdominal pain. This is accompanied by premenstrual syndrome, more commonly known as PMS. Here, women also experience hormonal changes.

Cramps usually come during the first five days of menstruation. This is due to the contracting movement of the uterus, shedding its tissue lining. However, most of the pain is largely due to the fluctuating changes in her hormonal levels.

After 14 days, her body will experience hormonal changes again. This time, she is preparing for the release of another egg to the uterus. Estrogen and progesterone levels will keep rising. However, if no fertilization occurs, these levels will drop. As a result, she will experience emotional imbalance, causing her to become irritable.

With all the sudden changes, accompanied by all that pain and discomfort, it’s no wonder women act that way. So, guys, cut her some slack when it’s her time of the month.
