Today we are talking about the menstrual cycle.


The average menstrual cycle is between 21 to 35 days, but it is normal to go as long as 40 days for some women.

Teenagers tend to have their menstrual cycles more close together. As we get older, our menstrual cycles tend to spread further apart, but they can also get closer together as we age as well.

There are four stages to a menstrual cycle: menses, follicular phase, ovulation & luteal phase. Learn about these and more in my video blog.

I look forward to hearing from you!
