There is a trend among some young women nowadays to suppress their menstrual cycles in order to enjoy vacations. The natural event of a woman’s menstrual bleed can be viewed as a burden or worse yet a curse by some. Many are unaware of the systematic beauty a woman’s body holds.
Did you know that women’s general health is linked to her reproductive cycles? Cassie Moriarty, a writer for Natural Womanhood’s Blog, identified several important factors affected by the female menstrual cycle including immunity, bone health, heart health, moods, and libido.
Moriarty interviewed Dr Jerilynn Prior, Director of the Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR), who stated “(Women) need ovulation, as well as normal cycles, for healthy bones….Women spend the first 25 years of their lives building bone mass. If they are ovulating normally, they should be able to keep that bone mass throughout their reproductive life and beyond.”
