Menstrual Phases

The menstrual cycle will be divided into 4 phases to simplify timing: menses (menstruation), proliferative, secretory and premenstrual. Ovulation is between proliferative and secretory phases, and it will be considered an intermediate time.

Follicular phase has been divided up into menstruation and proliferative phases. Menstruation is when the uterus lining is shed. The proliferative phase is from the end of menstruation until ovulation: this is the time when the uterus rebuilds to prepare for potential pregnancy.

Luteal phase has been divided into secretory and premenstrual phases. The corpus luteum which produces progesterone is present during the secretory phase. Premenstrual phase begins after the corpus luteum disintegrates, and it ends at the beginning of menstruation.

Determining Menstrual Phase

See the links under resources for more. Mucus is a reliable way to determine phase. Temperature is an indicator, but it can fluctuate soon after herbs are taken.

Menses

Menses (menstruation) is determined by menstrual shedding.

Proliferative

Proliferative phase begins once menstruation stops. Sometimes, menstruation can stop for a day, then resume. This phase is when estrogen levels gradually start to rise.

When estrogen levels are low, there is an absence of cervical mucus. A clear indication of being definitely a few days into proliferative phase is when mucus starts. Increasing estrogen levels influence mucus to be clear and watery.

Ovulation

Increased cervical mucus that is clear (like raw egg white) and stretchy is an indication of ovulation. Swollen genitals and a feeling of itching near where the ovaries are located are sometimes associated with ovulation.

Secretory

Thick (creamy) unclear (white/yellow) mucus and higher body temperature are signs of secretory phase.

Dominant progesterone levels cause mucus to be thick and unclear.

Temperature for secretory phase ranges between 36.5℃ (97.7℉) to 37℃ (98.6℉). Progesterone produced by the corpus luteum in comparison to lower estrogen raises body temperature. If body temperature is higher than 37℃ (98.6℉), or if you have hot-flashes, see estrogen deficiency.

Premenstrual

Premenstrual syndrome symptoms are likely from a sudden decrease in progestogen synthesis. Here, body temperature lowers under 36.5℃ (97.7℉).

Mucus remains thick during premenstrual. It gets gooey and cheesy-like closer to menstruation.

Menstrual phases can synchronize with the Moon's phases, but it is not always so. The beginning of menstruation is associated with New Moon, and the occurance of full moon is associated with ovulation. This is a less reliable way of determining menstrual phases.

Symptoms

The symptom of hot-flashes are associated with abnormally high body temperature. An excessive imbalance of progesterone or prolactin should be avoided. Decreased fertility may underlie symptoms indicating increased progesterone or prolactin. Hot-flashes are associated with lower than normal estrogen production.
