The menstrual cycle is a fundamental physiological process in women’s lives, marking the maturation of the egg and the preparation of the uterus for potential pregnancy.

But how long should this cycle last? What are its phases, and why is it crucial to understand it for both women and us?

The menstrual cycle typically lasts about a month, although it can vary from one woman to another and can range from 21 to 35 days. This cycle consists of several phases, the first being the follicular phase.

The follicular phase, which occurs approximately from the onset of bleeding to about 10-14 days later, is vital.

During this stage, the follicles in the ovaries mature, leading to the production of key hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

These hormones play crucial roles in hormonal health and overall well-being in women.

It is important to note that the duration of this phase can vary depending on levels of the hormone FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone).

Lower levels of FSH can prolong the follicular phase, while higher levels can shorten it.

During the follicular phase, levels of estradiol increase, leading to an increase in dopamine and serotonin, making the woman feel more optimistic and energetic.

Additionally, physical changes such as increased skin radiance, heightened libido, and changes in cervical mucus are observed, indicating the approach of ovulation.

These hormonal changes can also influence athletic performance, with many women taking advantage of this phase to train more intensely and recover more quickly.

Understanding the menstrual cycle is not only important for women but also for men, as it allows for greater empathy and support during this period.

Knowing its phases and duration is essential for better understanding and supporting women in their overall well-being.
