Let’s talk about periods

Starting a period is part of the normal process of growing up and is a sign that your body is changing and becoming an adult.

When you understand how your body works you can use it to your advantage and be truly empowered.

  1. What is puberty like?

    During puberty, you might feel confused or have strong emotions that you’ve never had before. You might feel overly sensitive or become upset easily. Some kids lose their tempers more often and get angry with their friends or families. You also may feel anxious about how your changing body looks.

    Puberty is important because it represents a period of profound transition in terms of drives, emotions, motivations, psychology, and social life. Recent studies have suggested that early-stage puberty might play an important role in adolescent brain development, perhaps more so than chronological age. Puberty in girls usually begins between the ages of 8 and 13 and lasts for several years. It is the time when your body develops and matures. Puberty prepares your body so one day you will be able to have a baby. The changes are caused by natural substances in your body called hormones.

  1. Hormones

    Hormonal changes that occur during a period include an increase in the production of estrogen, a female sex hormone. These changes can cause a girl to experience mood swings, acne, and other physical and emotional symptoms

    Hormones are necessary for the human body to function normally. They help regulate your metabolism, body temperature, and mood, among other things. When there’s fluctuation in hormonal levels in either direction, you might face some health issues. Even a small change in your hormones can affect how you feel. Fluctuation in certain hormonal levels may lead to:
    • Mood swings (irritability, depression, and/or anxiety)
    • Heavy or painful periods
    • Poor sleep and fatigue
    • Unexplained weight change
    • Skin problems like acne or dry skin
    • Headaches or brain fog (and other cognitive issues)

Some hormonal fluctuation is normal. 

Many aspects of your lifestyle can cause an imbalance in your hormones. At night, artificial lighting might confuse your body into thinking it’s not late, leading to melatonin suppression. Stress increases adrenaline and cortisol. When your body has too many of these hormones, you may experience mood changes. These hormones can also contribute to cardiovascular issues or weight gain. Regular activity has the potential to prevent overeating because it can help regulate hunger hormones. Exercise offers several benefits to your well-being. It can reduce stress hormones like cortisol while stimulating the production of endorphins. Endorphins can also help to improve your mood.
