Never be surprised by your period again - sounds good, right? But that's just one of the reasons why tracking your cycle isn't a crazy idea.
1. get to know your individual patterns
By tracking and logging a wide range of Cycle details you will notice connections and patterns that allow you to prepare for certain things in the future. For example, if you know that a small migraine attack always occurs two days before the start of your period, you can prepare yourself for this and pack a hot water bottle or a thermos flask of soothing herbal tea in case of an emergency.
2. never be surprised by your period again
For all those whose periods do not come every 28 days like clockwork, but who belong to those whose cycle length fluctuates up and down, the bleeding prefers to come on public holidays, as a happy surprise on the first day of the holiday, or at the most stressful, inappropriate moment in everyday life. It often brings with it a variety of moods and symptoms over which we have no control. Honestly - we only feel really well prepared with Not-o.b.'s in every single handbag, don't we?

The different phases of the menstrual cycle are controlled by certain hormones. And these actually influence your body and your psyche! It's worth getting to know them better. Anxiety or short periods of depression suddenly appear in a completely different light, and mood swings, food cravings or tiredness, for example, suddenly make sense when you realise that they are PMS (premenstrual syndrome) symptoms. And not just for you, but possibly for your partner too! The female cycle not only affects the body, but also the relationship. If your partner knows where you are at the moment, this has a number of advantages - and chocolate is just one of them.
