Oh, yes that caption refers to menstrual cycle. Advances in science has made it possible to dream it, and achieve it! The women menstrual cycle is designed to announce a woman’s new month perhaps since creation and it is kind of complementary to the word woman.

 Menstrual Cycle

Many myths came with the menstrual cycle, some initially propagated by misconceptions of scientific assumptions.One of such is the health repercussion of incomplete menstrual cycles or the usual 12 cycles in a year. Some related issues in the pass was that menstrual cycle served as a means of getting rid of the ‘bad’ blood in women of which there is no equivalent in men. Current findings are debunking such myths that painted the picture of impossibility as far as having no menstruation is concerned.


Interestingly, many women naturally do not have their cycles every month. This has been traced to some hormonal irregularities that may arise from different causes.

According to the research on sciencedaily the irregular periods are rampant among teenage girls, an underlying hormonal disorder may be to blame if this problem persists.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an endocrine disorder that is depicted by an excess of androgens or male hormones in the body. The imbalance of hormones affect the growth and release of eggs from the ovaries, which can prevent ovulation and menstruation.


On the other hand, many women have found out means of suppressing their usual 12 cycles to some reduced numbers and in fact, less heavy blood flow. This has been in place from the use of birth controls that can could reduce women cycles to four as against the usual 12 cycle – Seasonale.

Today, Yaz and Lybrel have similar modes of action. Seasonale is actually an oral contraceptive and a birth control pill. Seasonale, when taken as religiously as possible will ensure that only four cycles a year is possible in ladies.



Although current reports from medical practitioners state the uncertainty of a side effect, and while this may be a good idea from the thought of not having those low 3-6 days of the month, there is need to continually ask a question of cause and effect, which may be in the line of: ‘why 12 was put in place at first’.

What could be the yet unknown, not yet discovered or researched side effect of such short cuts? It is important to read more on reviews from previous users and ask a doctor about your specifics before jumping at this 4, not 12 cycles offer.
