MENSTRUAL CYCLE AND OVULATION PERIOD
Most we girls(even married ones)don’t understand this because of much heavy grammars used in talking about/teaching it and we don’t listen to our body too at times. Personally, i don’t understand this before but with time as I read, I started listening to my body too for signs and here I arrived in simple analysis/steps……..
WHAT IS MENSTRUATION?
MENSTRUAL PERIOD: The time blood flows out of your vagina which you uses pad.
MENSTRUAL CYCLE: How many days it takes to see another blood in the month. Example,if you saw your period last month June 11th and it came yesterday 10th July 2017, you have 30days Cycle(counting from 11 June to 10July).
- From the first day you see the blood of your period.
- Pick up a calendar and count 15days including the first day of the blood stain.
- Mark the 15th day with a pen(circle it).
- Mark 3 days before the 15th day
- Mark 3 days after the 15th day
- You will notice you have 7 days marked.
These 7 days are your ovulation/fertile days also known as unsafe period.
Meaning if you have sex on any of these days then you have 98% chances of being pregnant.
EVERY OTHER DAY IS YOUR SAFE PERIOD
- If your period is today 11th July, 2017,
- 15 days after the first day of the blood
- There will be stain on 25th of this July too(2weeks after) counting from 11th.
- 15th day is on the 25th July 2017.
- 3days before the 15th day which is 22,23,24.
- 3days after 25th July 2017 which is 26,27,28.
- 22th – 28th July(7days) is when you are ovulating and it’s your fertile period.
Don’t forget that these 7 days is to remind you that Sperm stays in the female body for up-to 7 days(a week), any sexual contact in between ovulation period will form something that has ears, eyes etc
THESE ARE MAJOR SIGNS THAT WILL TELL YOU, YOUR OVULATION IS AROUND………
- Body temperature rises(sometimes you touch a girl and her body is hot but she is not sick)
- Dizziness(feeling of tiredness and sleepiness )
- Breast tenderness/size increases just like when you are menstruating.
- Increased sex drive(sugar body)
- Light cramping or pain on one side of the pelvis
- Abdominal bloating.
- Heightened sense of smell, taste or vision(you eat more too).
- Vagina mucus becomes slippery(if you notice such, put it in between fingers, it stretches like thick catarrh or snail mucus, colorless just like egg whites.
N/B: The instance I gave here is for ladies with 30days cycle.And someone who saw her period this month July 2017.If yours is 28 then it’s 14days instead of 15days
MEN,read and educate your wives, some mothers don’t know this, she can use this method as a form of birth control than pills.
