Menstrual Health: Know the Facts

What’s “Normal”?

For adults, a healthy menstrual cycle begins every 21 to 35 days.

Prevalence of Period Pain

Some pain and discomfort during your period is common, but severe pelvic pain is reason for concern — especially if it gets worse over time.

Heavy Flow?

Changing your tampon or pad every 1-2 hours, or periods that last more than 7 days, is considered “heavy bleeding.” Talk to your doctor or OB-GYN about this.

Women’s Hormones Throughout the Month

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a complex interaction of hormones: luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and the female sex hormones estrogen & progesterone. And yes, like men, women have and need testosterone —  just not as much.

Everyday Chemicals Can Affect Your Hormones

Synthetic and natural chemicals in food, water, personal-care products, and the environment can enter our bodies and mimic or disrupt hormones, sometimes keeping them from doing their jobs.

"It's crucial to understand that hormone imbalance is often a symptom of an underlying issue. By identifying and addressing the root cause, we can achieve long-term balance and overall wellness."
