It is likely for you to know about the importance of your menstrual date. A regular menstrual cycle without disruption ensures that your reproductive system is in good health. Your menstrual date determines whether your periods are regular or not. In case of irregular menstruation, menstrual abnormalities are indicated. Irregular periods means when cycle length varies more than 35 and less than 21 days. Tracking the menstruation date allows you to know about the time of ovulation. It also enables you to notice prominent changes like excessive bleeding and missed periods. Apart from your menstrual date, you should know the other following things associated with your monthly periods:
Regular periods do not mean that you are fertile: A regular, monthly period does not guarantee or indicate your fertility. Periods can occur even without releasing an egg. This is known as an ovulatory cycle. It is basically a cycle where ovulation has not occurred. It is thought that normal periods indicate fertility, which is not true. Instead of only relying upon the dates of your menstrual periods, you should also track your basal body temperature and peek at your cervical fluid on a regular basis. There are certain applications, which can help you with this.
Regular periods do not always mean a fixed 28-day cycle: A menstrual cycle can last for a period of 21 to 35 days. If your cycle falls under this time period, your periods are normal. If your periods do not match with the given time period, abnormalities are indicated. Even if you experience your period within the given time frame, it cannot be termed regular if the days passing in between your periods stay unsteady. In case your cycle lasts for 24 days for one month, 30 for the next, and 26 for the third, irregular periods are indicated. This can also mean that your ovulation is not taking place periodically.
You can become pregnant during your period: Sperm is capable of living in your body for almost five days. This signifies that in case of shorter menstrual cycle, when ovulation starts quickly after your periods, you may get pregnant if you have sex on the last day. It is important for you to be aware of the primary difference between ovulatory bleeding and menstrual bleeding.
In case you mistake ovulatory bleeding for menstrual bleeding, your chances of getting pregnant are higher. It is important for you to talk to your doctor regarding any queries about these patterns of periods so that you know when you are fertile the most. Consult your doctor on experiencing any irregularities or abnormalities in your cycles.

- Drink lemon water every morning after you wake up. This will have an alkalizing effect on the body and keep the body hydrated and mineralized. Stay hydrated throughout the day,
- Must include vitamin D3 in your diet. Especially if you live is a colder climate where sunlight is reduced during the winter season.
- Increase consumption of leafy greens to ensure enough B vitamins, fiber and mineral supply in the body. You will get a lot of calcium, magnesium, iron, B vitamins and other minerals through leafy greens. Swiss chard, collard greens, yogurt, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, spinach contains these minerals.
- Eat fatty fish, fish or flax oil every day to get relief from hormonal imbalances.
- My most favourite remedy to get relief from cramps is an Ayurvedic home remedy using cinnamon and ginger to make a tea. Just use quarter tsp. of ground cinnamon and a pinch of ground ginger or a couple of thin slices of half an inch of fresh ginger to a cup of hot water. Wait and let it steep for 5 minutes. Strain and drink the tea.
- Vitex or chaste berry is a herb that eases menstrual cramps,
- Evening primrose oil or borage oil are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids and are known to reduce breast pain and tenderness as well as PMS symptoms.
- Dietary intake of calcium and magnesium is crucial for balancing the hormones.
- Using heating pads or hot water bags around the area relaxes the stiff muscles and reduces pain by bringing oxygen in the area.
- One of the most important things to address is relaxation through 7-8 hours of sound sleep and stress reduction. Meditation and breathing exercises (pranayama) also assist in reducing stress.
- If you eat a lot of nuts, seeds and grains then increase aerobic exercises. Aerobic exercises release endorphin hormones or 'feel good' hormones in the body. The presence of this hormone works like a natural pain killer.
- Apply natural progesterone cream or wild yam cream. Apply this cream on the stomach, lower abdominal area, buttocks, things, breasts and upper arm area. Best time to apply this cream is a week before the start of your period.
