We've been diving into cycle syncing lately & I'm loving all of your feedback!
Let's keep the momentum going by looking at Phase 3, called the Luteal Phase. As with each phase of our cycle, the Luteal phase has distinct needs that it asks of us.
Let's look at how to harness the power of our cycles to live our best lives!
Before moving forward I encourage you to read about Phase 1 and Phase 2 of our cycles so you have some foundational information.
Phase 3 is known as the Luteal Phase
During the Luteal phase, an egg is released into the uterus. Our estrogen levels continue to rise throughout this phase. If the egg hasn't been fertilized towards the end of this cycle, the corpus luteum (the follicle from which the egg bursts) is reabsorbed into the body. Progesterone then come to an end, which triggers your period to begin. Towards the end of this phase, testosterone begins to increase.
Let's explore some more key points about the Luteal phase:
The Luteal phase asks a lot of us! It's complex and asks that we look within and pay attention to how the needs of the body are ever-changing. As with all of our phases, once we can tune into the requirements of the Luteal phase we can thrive during each phase of our cycle. How amazing to change our perspective of our cycles, rather than dreading them.
