Menstrual Cycle and Endometriosis


Ciclus is an international relief formulation developed according to the highest quality and safety parameters, with an innovative formula in the context of premenstrual symptoms of the menstrual cycle and endometriosis.

Menstrual cycle

By convention, the menstrual cycle begins with menstruation, which can be understood as a restart of the whole system, in the absence of pregnancy in the previous cycle. Then a new follicle is developed while “reconstructing” the endometrium. When the time of ovulation, changes in the endometrial structure begin, which disappear again in the absence of pregnancy, restarting the cycle.

We usually distinguish two phases of the cycle, separated by ovulation. The first phase, proliferative, or follicular phase, is related to the growth of a new follicle and gradual thickening of the endometrium. At the end of this phase ovulation occurs and then the set of circulating hormones makes the endometrium receptive to a possible embryo. This second phase, luteal or secretory, ends when the woman menstruates, starting the new cycle.

How many days does a menstrual cycle have?

The cycles of healthy adult women are between 21 and 35 days old, with 28 days being the average. Women aged 25-35 years approach more than 28-35 days interval. In adolescents can be between 21 and 45 days.

Regular cycles have a range of less than 7-9 days from cycle to cycle. That is, the difference between the shorter and longer cycles is less than about 7 days.

How many days does your period last?

In a healthy woman with spontaneous cycles (without medication or pill), menstruation usually lasts less than 8 days. Within this interval, there is great variation among women, but less variation from cycle to cycle, in a woman with regular cycle.

Difficulties usually associated with the menstrual cycle

A normal menstrual cycle gives rise to variations objectively identifiable and perceptible by the woman. Starting with menstruation, which is an objective sign of the beginning of the new cycle. This is often accompanied by menstrual pains, which sometimes begin even before menstruation.

Ovulation determines hormonal changes that, in turn, lead to new symptoms. Mamuary tension, thicker discharge, among other variable changes among women can be felt cyclically at this stage (luteal phase).

Premenstrual syndrome is a set of physical, psychic and mood alums that usually appear days before menstruation.


Menstrual Cycle and Endometriosis

Menstrual pain is just one of the symptoms of endometriosis, although some people do not have any pain, many women with endometriosis have severe cramps before, during and after menstruation. Endometriosis is a condition in which an endometrial-like tissue (inner lining layer of the uterus) is found outside the uterus. This “dislocated” tissue induces an inflammatory response that can result in severe pain and scarring. In addition to cramps, endometriosis can cause pain when urinating, chronic pelvic pain, back, leg and shoulder pain. In some cases, the pain can be so severe that it prevents daily activities such as sitting and walking.

Depending on the place where endometriosis occurs, the patient may present a clinical picture ranging from no symptom to constant and uninterrupted pain. It is estimated that up to 50% of cases are asymptomatic.

The severity of pain is not necessarily a reliable indicator of the extent of the disease. Some women with mild endometriosis have severe pain, while others with advanced endometriosis may have little or even no pain.
