When estrogen is higher and more dominant during the first two weeks of your cycle, your body is naturally burning more carbohydrates. Whereas, the last two weeks of your cycle, when progesterone is higher and more dominant, your body is naturally burning more fat.

When it comes to fertility, I often see women blaming their own bodies before they look into the health of their partner’s sperm. It doesn’t matter if your partner is an Olympic athlete or if he drives a really fast car; sperm health, much like egg health, is something we simply cannot decipher without running some diagnostic tests first.

We’re sadly not taught that periods are a metric of health, that they can be enjoyable, and that intense symptoms during our periods are a sign of a deeper imbalance, not just bad luck. And we’re definitely not taught that we have the power to naturally improve the way we experience this sacred time of the month.

Like many young girls, I went on the hormonal birth control pill as a teenager for contraception. I was young and naïve and ultimately, I wanted to be able to live my life without the ‘inconvenience’ of a period and I certainly didn’t want to have a baby. From the day I got my period at age 15, all I wanted was for it to go away; I simply didn’t want to have to deal with it.
