I thought you guys would get like three questions right. Full Long steath. So much. Yeah, there's a totally in questions. So you each got at least three or so wrong. Yeah, that is sense. Well, some of them are really specific. Yeah, but point anyway. With that, I think we're going to get into our topic. Let's so we can all go on the script. I kind of band the from going on this chip so they couldn't cheat. Oh, I had it open the whole time, but it's just abomnstruations. Anyway, today we are talking about men, Menstrual Asian Mental Menstruation Station, men's strength right in the easiest men's station is when someone of the female sex days out of a vagina due to the monthly cycle. That's it, that's the straight up YEP, we love it, and not just this like episode, but like the topic of menstruation in the mental cycle can be very confusing due to multi levels, due to one, the science of it and also that we don't want about it. But it can be very confusing. So we have decided to split this topic into...

...two. The force two paragraphs will be on the science of the menstruation, how it works, on all that. Well, the last, like the fourth and the fifth, will be about how to make menstruation will bearable. We stand, good, we do, we do stand, we stand, we don't stand periods, but, like you know, that Bitch Eve map will and here we are. Yeah, okay, as stated above, menstruation is part of the menstrual cycle, which sounds like a fun little bike, but it's not. The menstrual cycle has four phases. The flow phase. This is menstruation. That's why we call her aunt flow. That lasts roughly five days. It can be between three and seven as well. If it goes longer, maybe go to a doctor. If it's shorter, they'd be good to a doctor. You know. The follicular phase. This is when the follicles begin to mature, with an ovum or egg am an egg of the same thing. Sorry, okay, basically, your body's prepared to have a kid. High levels of estrogen and Fsh, which you may have heard about in our pubidry puberty episode, which is up and you should go watch it. This lasts about nine days. On the fourteen day of the menstrual cycle, roughly, it differs for everyone. Ovulation occurs. This has a spike in lh and a sudden drop in estrogen. ovulating makes you really corny because your body wants a baby. follicle POPs, releasing the OTHOM. This lasts for twenty four hours the time and OPUM is active in the body. Lastly, in the luteal phase, it occurs for roughly twenty eight days. This is when the inner lining of the Europeans, the endometrial layer, thickens to prepare for a baby. The Corpus Luteum also forms. Also forms, creating high levels of progesterone. So that's the background information. That's all of the science behind it. So, yeah, some of the words, and they're like ovulation. That's when the egg is like actually moved out of the ovary, and the reason actually that women are typically wanting to have sex during that ovulation is because that's when the egg has just been released and when it will be the freshest. I love freshets. What makes some fresh eggs? Oh yeah, makes every wait, they need more information. Come on,...

Hebrew were trying to keep it brief. They don't need to know all about it. I know, I know, I'm so sorry. I just love in I just love informing the children of the world. God bless the children of the world. So what exactly is menstruation? Um Menstruation is the flow phase. This occurs roughly fourteen days after ovulation, due to the fact that no Zygout, Zygoat or Zygo fertilized egg has been implanted in the endometrial wall and the Corpus Luteum then dissolves because, you know, there's no egg in the endometrium, there's no need for the endometrium, no baby. Yeah, so this lowers the progesterone and estrogen levels and once they drop that's when the body starts to get rid of the endometrial wall. So this is what actually makes up the menstrual blood, all the insides of what would keep the Zygoat safe our shed and removed from your uterus. So if you were have, if you were to have a faulty Corpus Luteum, and this can occur when you're pregnant, but it will happen before any ZYGOAT has time to develop, is that the progesterone levels will not be optimal and you could actually start shedding that lining if you are pregnant, if you have a faulty Corpus Luteum. So that's when possible miscarriage could occur and you might need a doctor's help to get pregnant, if that's what you were looking for. And just something to add on is that the sixth most common premnsterruble symptoms are cramping in your lower stomach where your uteruses, bloating, having acne breakouts or black heads, so or breasts, fatigue and boot swings. But please do be aware that these are just the six most common. There are literally dozens of symptoms and some of them can be much worse than others, and that's when you can get very serious illnesses, not illnesses, but conditions. It's I'm sorry, I don't know if this will be in the editing pot and of the thing, but it's very funny to watch every act like how mean Smona Apps, because really, when me and Samona reading every spots, will like, you know, kind of reading them and also trying to make it in our own way. It's fun to be like I did it, write this, what do I and as as every there again, I was also running out to as asleep with this. So, Oh my good. Anyway, we at least...

...have coffee. I had coffee. This money down. So that is the science of Menstruation and the mental cycle at a glance. Again, that is that is the bare minimum of what Ya, it is like. That's it stepped down into literally skeletons. There's so much more you can laun but we do recommen using Google or take in a biology class. Come on the offer take them if you're interested. There will be linked some description, to websites that can help you learn more about the men's menstruation and the mentrual cycle. But let's move on. How to make periods more bearable. There are a few will known ones, such as head blankets, massaging uterus and payments, but there are so much more. Yoga has been told to help with menstrual pains. I personally used to do this and then I got lazy and I stopped Waking Up at six in the morning to yoga. That works. It works pretty well. Any gentle movement actually can help, so like jogging or just you know, not ad workouts. Those kind of stuck Um Yoga positions that can help include pigeon pose, which is where you put one leg in front of you and you try and extend the other leg all the way behind you and even sold over forward to get a good stretch. It also helps with developinger splits if you want to be able to do the splits. Cat Cow which involves going on your knees and your palms and stretching your back curved upwards and curve downwards. I've never tried that, but it could probably help yet. Or corpse pose, or Corpus, but I don't know what you meant to put but I don't cops. Cops pose is where you literally just lay down. It's also known as Svasana um it's very relaxing. So it can help with mood swings, potentially if you get really overwhelmed while you're on your period, if it can help relieve tension in general. Okay, another thing that you can do is take a long and hot bath. A lot of people won't want to do this because, like, if you use pads rather than tampons or a Diva Cup, you won't be able to. You marryn it if you have a heavy float. But yeah, you can't do that. Or shower will also work the same if you use pads rather than like internal so catch the warmth and relaxation helps. So like even just like relaxing in like a hot environment helps, and not having to wear clothes while doing that also helps. So, like if you have a heated blanket, you want to get naked, that also works. Okay, very much,...

...so, very much, says. Okay. A different approach that can help with period pains is having an orgasm. HMM, just a note, like a quick little note. Sometimes it can make it worse, but it can also potentially decrease the length of your period because it causes contractions within your uters sometimes, but generally it does help cramps. This can be done by yourself or with a partner, whatever works. Um, you have a partner, make sure like you're safe and everything. Use Protection if it's someone who can get you pregnant or give you Ustis, because you can still get those things while you're on your period. It's very unlikely that you get pregnant, but it's still a possibility if your mental cycles. Like we're going to zoom this time exactly. If you have if you have light colored sheets, so I would recommend putting a towel underneath, just because it helps for easier clean up. If and you don't have to like hydrogen peroxide your sheets afterwards. Yeah, it's pretty much it. So good. Um, a simple way of relieving your pain is even its resting and take app you know, it can be easy to overwork yourself, depending on stuff like your flow and even some of your like balance, some of the balances like within your body and stuff like. Personally, I sometimes have lower iron so I can get really like woozy and a kind of light headed. So overworking yourself is going to help no one. You're going to make yourself tired. Another way that you can try and like relieve some of your symptoms is using electrical currents, which actually I didn't even know about till I read this, which is super cool. The actual thing called Trans Cutaneous Electric Nerve stimulation, soo tends. It stimulates to your nerves to help or leave the pain you're experiencing. Birth control can also help produce your pain you would feel during your period and may evenly to with delay or absence of periods. So basically what this means is that, you know, birth control helps to regulate your cycle because it has specific amounts of hormones to adhere to the specific days of your psychle another thing that can help is going into child's pose, which is another yoga pose. So for anyone who does yoga, it's basically like kind of drawing your knees around your chest and stretching your arms forward, a kind of like rolling out your shoulders a bit sometimes. What that's much. That's child post. No, child's...

...poses when you go on your knees and you lay flat on your stomach. So look, child, isn't that what I'm saying? Oh, I thought you were meaning like happy baby. Oh No, no, well, that minor refusion aside, even just like Google, child's pose this is just like us trying to explain Um Se. Yeah, you can maybe go into child's pose Um. Personally, I find that having a little bit of pressure kind of in the lower stomach can help a bit, just kind of doing a light massage or something. But yeah, no one's experience is going to be the expect same because no one's body is the exact same. And Yeah, kind of like we talked about in our puberty episode, these kinds of things, you're going to get used to them as you get older and you experience more. But if you have any drastic changes or really like intense, intense pain, then do see a doctor or talk to your parents or guardians. And of course, the another way to stop period pains is pregnancy. That nine months without them, you get some other pains. It's a lose loose. Yeah, I'm clean. He's cool, though. It's painful, though. This is all for our menstruation episode. We hope you find you enjoyed it and found it slightly in from a informdate. Fuck from informative. Yes, we hope you enjoy it and found it from and him ain't. We hope you liked it. Again, help your research further into it. We only touch the tip of the iceberg. And if you find your menstrution, it does not follow the cycle we described. None of these men methods and room were leaving. The pain don't walk for you. That's okay. Make sure to Google what works for you. If it's drastically different, like Simone said, go see your doctor if you could have an issue, and your doctor will definitely help you more than some three teenagers. Well, but remember, give aid as fuck. Samo, what do you want to say? Okay, so there's another method for relieving pain that I should have like texted Jackson about while he was writing the episode. But like it's time put in what you could. I put a pot on each use where you can say another thing that. Yeah, I forgot about it, though, until every started talking and I realized idn't have another part. Oh, I'm so oh, no, it's okay, it's not your faull. Okay, no, say, this is what it's about. It like same things you may forgot to say, or like before we end the kind of putting take. Another...

...thing that can work is medicinal cannabis. It does. It's not for everyone. It doesn't necessarily have to get you high. Make sure it's legal in your country or product, sure state and you're the age to use it, or you have a medical prescription. Obviously. I feel like we should say that quick because not. Yeah, yeah, in Canada, if you're over eighteen, it's completely fine to use. But you're going to use it medically, though, you should have a medical prescription. Yes, but if you do it anything, yes, anyways, there's a way that you can use it that will not get you high and it will still help relave pain. If you have access to doing this, you can get CBD, Cannabis Oil, and you can rub it on your lower stomach. It can help relieve cramps. It smells kind of add it works, though. Oh, same kind of idea on that is peppermint oils, yes, and also clary sage essential oils. It's a euphoric, so it can help re leave pain. Well, needless to say, those a lot of ways that you can help make your a few days, your mental yourminstruation easier on yourself. We just touched them a few and some stuff that we use, that we've heard use, or stuff that we know about. What makes you go Google Yourself. That's the point of the podcast. Is We give you a bit information. You figured out yourself. We're not here to teach you. We're here too slightly inform you so that you can teach yourself. I mean, did you kind of seeking though? Yes, and to be just saying, we were meant to be in like twenty minute episodes and we've been doing them a long time. Ever, we're not supposed to go that in depth, but hey, we love so topics and we love sell you them, so we're gonna a jus yea, unless we have an act, how can you understand in so little words? You know, you supposed to get the basic idea. Yeah, so that you can go yourself. This is basic. I just, I, just, I. Every teacher showing. Anyway, we hope you enjoy today's episode and we hope that we get see you next few weeks. If not, well, you know how we could rest of your life. And anything else to add. Guys though this book. And Yeah, I'm gonna go have some cheese. I love how all of avers and pots have been about food recently. Okay, you guys,.
