Phase 1 begins when you get your period.
Throughout this phase, the pituitary gland releases a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which promts the ovaries to get an egg ready for ovulations. Phase 1 ends with the selection of a dominant follicle—when your body selects the egg that will be released at ovulation.
You may experience cramps, have trouble sleeping and generally feel more restless.
Phase 2 followes Phase 1 and is the time your hormones build and your uterus gets ready for the selected egg.
Your uterus will start to rebuild the lining that it just shed during your last period as it prepares for ovulation.
Estrogen builds, peaks and drops during this phase. The luteinizing hormone (LH) also increases during this phase and Phase 2 ends when LH levels reach their highest point.
You may feel less hungry, more receptive to change and more active.
Phase 3 is all about ovulation. This is around the middle of your cycle.
The peak of the LH triggers ovulation. This hormone prompts your body to release an egg from the ovary into the fallopian tube. After ovulation, estrogen continues to drop, and LH levels follow
Your body may run at a higher temperature, you might experience cramps, and your inner perfectionist could make an appearance!
Phase 4 begins right after ovulation.
This is the time in your cycle with high progesterone levels. Part of progesterone's role is to preserve the uterine lining so the fertilized egg can attach. Estrogen levels also rise in Phase 4.
You may notice changes in your appetite, an increased heart rate, and working out might require some more effort.
Phase 5 is the final few days before you get your period and the cycle starts all over again.
In this phase, if there is a pregnancy, hormones will stick around to preserve the uterine lining. If there is no pregnancy, hormones will take a nosedive and cramping may begin. This will signal to your body that it's time for another period.
There are more than 300 physical, psychological, emotional, behavioural and social symptoms liknked to Phase 5 (hooray!). You may experience that 'snacky' feeling, body aches, and water retention (bloating).
