?How to get your first period faster?

Are you tired of waiting for your first period? Are you feeling left out when everyone else is talking about it? Are you ready to join the club and start experiencing all the joys and pains that come with menstruation? Look no further, because I have some tips and tricks to help jumpstart your menstrual cycle.

Understanding Your Menstrual Cycle

Before we dive into ways to speed up your period, let’s take a quick crash course on what happens during a typical menstrual cycle. Menstruation is the shedding of the uterine lining caused by hormonal changes in the body. The average menstrual cycle lasts about 28 days, but can range from 21-35 days depending on each individual.

The menstrual cycle includes several phases:

  1. Menstrual Phase: This phase is marked by actual bleeding and typically lasts around 3-7 days.
  2. Follicular Phase: This phase begins after menstruation ends and lasts until ovulation occurs.
  3. Ovulatory Phase: This phase marks the release of an egg from the ovaries.
  4. Luteal Phase: During this phase, if fertilization does not occur, hormones trigger menstruation once again.

Now that we understand how our bodies go through these different phases, let’s talk about ways to possibly speed up or regulate our menstrual cycles.

Increase Physical Activity

Engaging in regular exercise can help balance hormone levels in our bodies which may lead to a more predictable menstrual cycle. It’s important not to overdo it though – excessive physical activity can actually cause delayed periods so make sure you are exercising at a moderate intensity level that suits your body type and fitness level.

Diet Modification

Certain foods like soy products, high-fiber fruits/vegetables or spices like ginger/turmeric ,have been linked with reduced hormone imbalances that lead to irregular periods. On the other hand, too much fatty food such as butter or cheese/unhealthy snacks can interfere with hormone levels – leading to a delay in menstruation. Strive for an overall balance of healthy and nutritious foods to help regulate your menstrual cycle.

Managing Stress Levels

Stress releases cortisol, which is a hormone that suppresses normal bodily processes like ovulation. Therefore, finding ways to manage stress ,like yoga/meditation sessions (and maybe taking time off from stressful activities), can actually assist in regulating menstrual cycles.

Herbal Supplements

Certain herbal supplements have been known to promote hormonal balance and increase blood flow around pelvic area thus helping regulate periods-cycle quickly( but before taking them please do consult here). Herbs such as Dong Quai, Angelica Sinensis or Vitex Agnus Castus are believed by some womento be helpful alternatives that aid quickerstabilization during menstrual cycles.

However there is limited research regarding these herbs’ effects on fertility

Hormonal Birth Control

Birth control pills contain hormones that mimic those naturally produced by our bodies which helps stabilize hormonal imbalances and trigger menstruation regularly.This is also recommended upon consulting gynecologist.

Kishore Varma ,a Gynecologist at Apollo Spectra believes “There are several types of birth control pills available today — some containing estrogen only whereas others contain a combination of both estrogen and progesterone”. He said-“In case you take hormones/spices without complete knowledge,it may harm faster regulation .Thus ,choosing eeta proper method(e.g -Short vs long acting) prioritizes counseling & understanding medical history”.

Keep In Mind:
It’s important NOT t /o consider emergency contraception methods like “morning-after pill” Misoprostol(MIFEPREX®),Levonorgestrel(morning after pill) wrongly deemed equivalently to birth control pills as a quick way to regulate menstruation. They can interfere with your menstrual cycle and may have unwanted side effects like heavier bleeding or nausea.

Opting for eco-friendly, sustainable period care options (think: cloth pads, organic tampons,cups)might also lend extra benefit towards regulating flow-stabilization during perimenarchal stage.
