How frequently have you joked about doing away with your ovaries because of the inexplicable pain you go through during periods? While a lot has been said and reported about menstrual cycle, nothing can take away the feeling and uncomfortableness that periods come with.
No matter what your age is, you never really get used to the discomfort. Dealing with those intense and confusing emotions seems to be just an unworkable task.
Additionally, you are never able to answer the dreadful, “How are you feeling” question because you don’t even know what’s going on with you. If you didn’t know already, it is your hormonal changes that are causing all these fluctuating emotions. While your loved ones believe that “fresh air” would do some good, all you really want to do is crawl into some distant hole and not get out for few days in a month.
However, this video released by Glamour magazine attempts to explain the roller-coaster ride that a woman body’s goes through during periods. And its makes a lot of sense.

Those cystic zits are gone, your glow is back. You’re basically ready to take on the world on the 10-13 days.
The video not only explains what the different phases of your menstrual cycle are but also suggests you ways of dealing with them. Just when you thought you were done with the whole thing, it’s back again.
