Calling All Gynecologists

menstrual-cycle-iheartgutsMenstrual cycles can be baffling, and that’s why I really wanted to make this special poster explaining this special time of the month, mostly so I can justify to my poor husband exactly why I am feeling totally insane. “It’s not me, honey, it’s the progesterone spiking,” or, “Can you understand now why I’m being a total bee-yatch? I’ve got at least five different hormones coursing through my body right now. I’m on drugs.” Marvel at the leuteinizing hormone! Be amazed as the estrogen takes a nosedive right before ovulation! Check out the egg as it takes its long journey through your reproductive system! Anyway, check it out and give me feedback — calling all OB/GYNs! Editors! Anatomy nuts! Sex educators! — before I send this thing to the printer. I know it’s a little crazy-looking, design-wise, but then again, so’s the menstrual cycle.

    thanks for all the great comments on when pms happens, we got that correction, and changed that area to “head full of hormones” instead since hormone hell comes later. we also adjusted the thing about progesterone and mucous, you’re absolutely right about progesterone’s role with the lining. agreed also with your philosophical notes, we are all just giant walking chemistry sets, and i think that’s pretty cool, whether you’re a man or a woman.

    LOL!!!! Hilarious. Love it. The only thing I would add is a little disclaimer that “This cycle is subject to change, depending on health, age, stress, or plain hormonal craziness…for more info on the changing cycle, consult your local fertility awareness guru.”

    May I have permission to post this on my blog?

    This is really cute and helpfull, but I’m still confused on one thing that I have been wondering for alittle bit now and would like it answered if any one could

    . If you have sex on about day 25 or 26 and you get “knocked up”, will your period still come for that month or will you miss that period (pregnant). And if you get your period for that month is there a possibilty that just from having sex on day 25 or 26 that the next month you wont get your period (pregnant).

I hope you learned something today. If conception occurred and you didn’t take an active role in preventing it, you have no one to blame but yourself. If you wanted conception to occur…congrats cause your a dad. [...]

    This is absolutely brilliant! It made things so easier (I study year 11 human biology). They should totally explain things like this more often! Thank you so much!
