There are different beliefs about menstruation, some of them well-founded and others not. Since ancient times, the rule was considered a disadvantage compared to men, a handicap, a generator of impurity, and so many concepts that favored the inferiority of women. With current knowledge about the physiology (or normal functioning) of the female reproductive apparatus, many of these taboos should have been eliminated. Still, it is known that the less knowledge about the body, the greater the word-of-mouth transmission of concepts. They are not always accurate and instill fear in women, especially in the youngest, who is just beginning the path of their sexual life.
In this FastlyHealarticle, we explain why menstruation comes every month and clarify the doubt about whether lemon cuts your period or not.
Why does the period come every month?
Menstruation or “rule” (so-called because of its periodicity and arrival regularly each month) is a normal part of the female menstrual cycle.
Each month, the uterus of a woman of childbearing age prepares and thickens, through the influence of hormones manufactured by the female body itself, to house a fertilized egg. The fertilized ovum is one that, as a result of sexual intercourse, joins a sperm, giving rise to a zygote egg or a new life. That is to say, every month, since a woman menstruates and ovulates, she has the possibility of becoming pregnant if the embryo remains “attached” to the thickened uterus.
When the ovum is not fertilized, that uterus receives other hormonal signals, and a layer of the uterus is shed, manifested externally as menstruation, which happens every approximately 28 days.
The blood of the rule does not contain toxins. The menstruating woman in good health does not suffer from changes in her health parameters (such as blood pressure and heart rate, among others). Knowing this is recognizing the strength and good health of a woman who menstruates every month.
Is it true that lemon cuts the rule?
There are indeed medications and certain medicinal plants that are used during menstruation. Some to relieve pain, others to reduce the amount of bleeding when it is excessive, and there are even drugs with hormones that prevent the period from coming for a few days (this is because they alter the normal menstrual cycle).
Lemon is one of the most potent healing plants since, contrary to what some think and despite being acidic, it helps to maintain the body’s alkalinity, something essential to maintain health. It also has numerous properties :
- Eliminate toxins.
- Helps in healing.
- It is a source of essential minerals and vitamins that help keep the body healthy or regain health if weakened. To do this, it is proposed to do once a year body cleansing with the help of this citrus.
- It helps stop bleeding when applied to a wound, but drinking lemon juice does NOT cut your period.
Can the rule be cut immediately?
The rule results from the normal functioning of the body of a woman of childbearing age. It is not influenced by habits that can be taken during those days, such as bathing or washing hair, consuming acidic foods such as citrus (lemon) or tomato, or even another type of food linked to the “cut” of menstruation, such as avocado.
If a woman is in normal health, there is no risk of having her “period cut.” The rule cannot be cut immediately. As seen in the previous section, the menstrual cycle can be modified with hormonal medication, but the period is not shortened even in this way. The period may not appear for different reasons, such as pregnancy or specific diseases. So if your period does not appear, it is best to consult your trusted doctor.
For thousands of years, fear has been generated in the female population, fear that “menstruation will go away and never return,” fear of “looking silly,” and even “suffering strokes” if certain imposed norms were not respected, all of them tending to segregate women and put them in a condition of inferiority concerning men. So do not be afraid that the lemon will cut the rule.
