Menstruation and mood swings

For most women, menstruation may be more of a problem than a way of life that makes them the only creators of life and is no longer a blessing.

However, setbacks, discomfort and other factors that lead to menstruation make us hurt thinking that the only thing that generates us are problems and in many cases joke about it.

It is necessary to realize that menstruation indicates to us monthly the reproductive cycle of the woman, when she can become pregnant or not and how it develops physiologically and reproductively throughout her years as a fertile woman.

It is true that having to go through that cycle every month of the year, from 12 to 50 or 55 years can be exhausting or even a sentence for many but we must understand that nature is very wise and that this form of development has been imposed on us because perhaps we are the only ones who can bear its consequences.

Menstruation and mood swings

When the first day of the rule arrives in women or even up to a week before the body begins to experience great changes that even others can perceive.

We will name some changes that can be experienced in women both internally and externally when the cycle begins:

  • Chest pain
  • Tension drops
  • Acne on the face, chest and back
  • Ovarian pain
  • Waist pain
  • Feet tired and swollen
  • Mood changes such as irritability, susceptibility, overwhelm, fatigue, etc.
  • Headaches

These changes occur to a greater or lesser extent according to the woman, because not all experience the same pains, or states that others, even some do not feel or suffer anything except a small pain of chest or ovaries as a normal sign of the cycle.

Mood swings, on the other hand, are one of the most noticeable factors among women because their way of acting, thinking and feeling changes radically, as they say, it is the most sensitive moment of the cycle and emotions are at the surface of their skin. .
