UNDERSTANDING THE HORMONES IN YOUR BODY
Hormones affect every woman in different ways, and we all have them. We don't often directly feel the influence they have on our bodies, but sometimes we do – most notably during puberty when the sex hormones are produced in larger amounts. These hormones, including oestrogen and progesterone, enable and influence the menstrual cycle.
HORMONES AND THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE
The menstrual cycle or period is a natural process and is roughly around 28 days. It is regulated by hormones in your body which rise and fall throughout your cycle. Here's a brief look at what these hormones do during your period.
