a healthy start to fertility – menarche

Going through puberty can be scary but with the right information it doesn’t need to be as daunting. A regular menstrual cycle once is begins, occurs each month – very often co-inciding with the moon (since the moon pulls the tides and our bodies are mostly water, the moon has a very strong influence on our bodies). I was asked during the week to write a blog about menarche – a woman’s first period. Most of you are no stranger to your monthly period, it comes and goes without too much thought (and if it doesn’t or it is dreaded, it might be time to get onto it), but everybody knows somebody who has a daughter, niece, cousin, or friend that might find this useful to help education young women as they move through the cycles of life.
