We all want to know, “Is it normal for my period to start and then stop again?” Even women who have never experienced a missed period or irregularities in their menstrual cycle are curious about this question. Because missing a period is a common thing for women who are in their reproductive age (and it happens to almost everyone at one time or another), there is very little wonder that the question of “what is normal” is discussed as much as it is. After all, we all want to know what is normal for us, particularly when it comes to our own bodily processes. So it is only natural that we would wonder if our periods are normal.
One way to get an idea of what is normal for you is by tracking your period. As soon as you notice an irregularity in your period, count your menstrual cycles. This can be done many different ways, but is an easy way to keep track of when your period is. If your period is normally spaced two to four days apart, then you are probably on a regular cycle.
Of course, when you miss your period, then you might wonder “is it normal for it to start and then stop again?” It is fairly normal to go on a missing of your period. Your body is always working to make sure that another cycle is ready to be had. When you go on missing your period, this usually means that another set of hormonal instructions has been given to your body, directing it to make you menstrual cycle again. It is also possible that you just ran out of menstruation control, and that your period just stopped.
A good way to find out if it is normal for your period to start and then stop again is by keeping an eye on yourself during your periods. Start with a calendar of when you missed your period, and then keep track of how long it took for you to get back onto the regular cycle. You may be surprised at how much longer you have gone since you started missing your period.
Another way to tell if you are on a normal cycle is by tracking when you ovulate. Ovulation is a woman’s most fertile time. This is also when her cervical mucus breaks down and makes her most fertile. The easiest way to determine if you are ovulating is by keeping track of the temperature of your cervical mucus. The fresher it is, the sooner you will ovulate. Once you have figured out when you are going to ovulate, then you can start to make love and have intercourse so that you will both know when your next period is coming along.
If you have not had a period for some time, you might start to notice that your pelvic area feels sore or that your breasts don’t feel as full as they once did. If you have just started a period and you are noticing these symptoms then you might want to try using an ovulation prediction kit. This will allow you to figure out when you are ovulating and thus can have sex to help you get ready for a period again. Use these two simple tips to find out if your period normal is for you and then you can have some fun planning your next period!
