Testimonial by Monica
I began my journey to understand my body more deeply, including my menstrual cycle. I investigated and looked at nutrition, got further tests to check my hormones, and worked with health professionals in understanding my menstruation cycle more intimately and how and or what it might be communicating with me.
It turns out this was a way my body was communicating with me saying that something wasn’t right, and more care was needed. With support from professionals, I started to change this relationship with myself and my body. I started to no longer dismiss what my body was sharing with me and began to embrace the beauty within including that I was delicate .. something I would not have associated as being! Also, in how I was very sensitive to what was going on around me the whole time I had always felt sensitive to what was going on around me with people in different environments/places in my life but didn’t know how to deal with this so would get defensive. Understanding more how everything is linked it makes sense that this was one of the reasons my periods were all over the place. I started to listen to what was happening in my body and how I was with me, noting the changes that were happening month to month.
