TSOM- Teens

Our teenage years can be summed up in one phrase… ‘What the hell is going on? Is this normal? Am I normal?‘ It’s the stage of our lives that is often full of firsts; First job, first time driving, first drink, first break-up, first sexual partner, and your first period. So let’s get down to the stuff we wish we were told, other than how to put a condom on a banana. 

Periods

Overview

A textbook period is 28 days, however it can be normal to have a period anywhere from 21 days to 35 days.  Your period is split into 2 sections Pre-ovulation , with ovulation (egg release) in the middle. Hormones change during these phases to grow the egg and allow it to attach to the uterine wall and allow for pregnancy. It is a beautiful nuance between the brain and reproductive organs that creates these changes. When something is off, everything else alters.

Early Phase

Also known as the follicular phase, this is where your body grows and develops your egg to get ready to be fertilised.  It spans from the first day of bleeding to ovulation. Hormonally oestrogen is accumulates over this phase to help build and develop the follicle into an egg that is ready to be fertilised when the brain perceives it is safe to fall pregant.
