Every young girl goes through the same rite of passage to become a woman. She commences her menstrual cycle. This indicates that her body is ready to house life, that she is potentially fertile and can now become pregnant and produce a baby. Menstruation is defined as the normal discharge of blood and tissue from the uterine lining through the vagina that occurs as part of a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle. Menstruation occurs between menarche (a girl’s first period) and menopause (when a woman ceases having her menstrual cycle and she is no longer fertile.)
The average duration for menstruation in normally menstruating women is about 5 days.
Depending on upbringing, this initial experience can be one of surprise or alternatively it can be an acknowledgement, a recognition of a milestone that a young girl has commenced a new phase of her growth and development that hallmarks the blossoming into womanhood.
For my Mother, one day when she went to school at age 12, she started bleeding. This was a huge shock, as she’d never been given any information about puberty, or menstruation, so she thought she was about to die. Luckily, an older girl who was a friend, took care of the situation and she was immediately educated that she was in fact not going to die, but rather she had commenced something that was a normal, healthy, natural cycle of life for all women.
When I was 7 years old, my Mother in her great wisdom, gave me an education about puberty and what to expect when I became of age to begin menstruating. She did not want me to have the same experience that she’d had and instead of being ignorant or naïve, she wanted me to be aware of the changes that would be occurring in my body prior to this time and what I could expect once I began menstruating. It was very reassuring to know about what was to come and know I had my Mum there to guide me.
When I was 12, one day I too began bleeding and I remember being very excited and filled with wonder that this auspicious time of finally “becoming a woman” had arrived. I yelled out to my Mum, “I’ve got my period” and she came rushing into the room and gave me a hug and kiss in acknowledgement of this “coming of age” and we went out together that day to celebrate this special event.
The average age of when girls commence menstruation is 12 years old and the range can be from 10 years of age to 16 years.
The average age of when women in the US go through natural menopause is 52 years old. Natural menopause is the spontaneous, permanent ending of menstruation that is not caused by any medical treatment. Menopause is a normal, natural event. It’s defined as the final menstrual period and is confirmed when a woman has not had her period for 12 consecutive months. The range when most women go through menopause is from 45 – 58 years old.
On average as women, we have 40 years of our life where we are menstruating. This monthly cycle can be barely noticeable for some and for others it’s a time of dread, discomfort and pain as they experience symptoms of what is collectively known as “Menstrual Cycle Disorders.”
For most women, a normal menstrual cycle ranges from 21 to 35 days. On average it is every 28 days.
However, 14% – 25% of women have irregular menstrual cycles. Their cycles are shorter or longer than normal, they are heavier or lighter than normal or these women experience other issues with their menstrual cycle, like abdominal cramping.
Additionally over 90% of women have reported that they get premenstrual symptoms (Also know as PMS – Premenstrual Syndrome) such as bloating, headaches and mood swings.
For all irregularities and disorders relating to your menstrual cycle always seek the advice of your medical practitioner or gynecologist.
The most common menstrual disorders include:
Amenorrhea or absent menstrual period. Amenorrhea is when a woman does not get her menstrual period by age 16 or when she stops menstruating for at least 3 months and this is not due to pregnancy.
Menorrhagia or heavy menstrual period (also known as excessive bleeding.)
Prolonged menstrual bleeding. This is when the duration of menstrual bleeding exceeds 8 days and this occurs on a regular basis.
Dysmenorrhea or painful periods. Dysmenorrhea may include severe cramps during menstruation.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is where approximately 1 – 2 weeks prior to getting their menstrual period women experience a combination of physical and emotional symptoms that can include abdominal bloating, headaches and feeling more emotional or experiencing increased moodiness.
Additional menstrual irregularities include:
Polymenorrhea is when a woman has increased frequency of her menstrual period and they occur less than 21 days apart.
Irregular menstruation periods where cycle to cycle it varies for more than 20 days.
Shortened menstrual bleeding, where the duration of menstruation is less than 2 days.
Intermenstrual bleeding also known as “spotting.” This is where episodes of bleeding occur in between the monthly menstrual cycle.
For some women, the symptoms of PMS and dysmenorrhea can be so severe that they miss work or school.
From my own personal experience growing up in Sydney in Australia, there were times when I had cramping that was so severe that I had to lie down and/or take an analgesic (as prescribed by my gynecologist) in order to relieve the pain. This usually occurred on the 1st or 2nd day of my menstrual period and by day 3 it was non-existent. There were other times when I barely noticed I was menstruating other than the fact that I was bleeding.
On average women in their 30’s are most likely to suffer from PMS.
PMS symptoms vary from woman to woman. You may get physical symptoms, emotional symptoms or both. During the course of your life your symptoms may also alter.
Physical symptoms of PMS can include:
- Abdominal bloating or feeling of gassiness
- Backache (especially lower back)
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Clumsiness (dropping things or losing your balance)
- Lower tolerance for noise or light (heightened sensitivity)
Emotional or mental symptoms of PMS can include:
- Feeling fatigued or tired
- Sleep issues
- Irritability or hostile behavior
- Appetite changes or food cravings
- Issues with concentrating, memory or brain fog
- Tension, worry or anxiety
- Depression, sadness or periods of crying
- Mood swings
- Less interest in sex
Researchers are not exactly sure what causes PMS. Changes in hormone levels during our menstrual cycle has been shown to play a key role.
The changing hormone levels and how they impact each individual may vary. Also PMS symptoms may get worse as women reach their late 30’s and 40’s and approach menopause. For women whose moods are sensitive to the changing hormone levels during their menstrual cycle this can certainly be the case. In the years leading up to the menopause, hormone levels may tend to fluctuate unpredictably as our body transitions through this time. The good news is, PMS stops after menopause once you cease menstruating.
There is evidence that PMS may happen more often in women who:
- Have high levels of stress
- Have a family history of depression
- Have a personal history of depression or have had postpartum depression
Menstrual irregularities and disorders can be due to a variety of reasons, including hormonal imbalances or changes, pregnancy, infections, diseases, stress, trauma and certain medications.
Stress can be especially disruptive to our endocrine system and can greatly impact our menstrual cycle.
When I was 21 years old I went through a particularly stressful year. It was so stressful, that my menstrual period completely ceased and I had amenorrhea. After 3 – 4 months, I visited my gynecologist and he discovered that I had developed an ovarian cyst that was more than 3 inches in diameter (slightly larger than a baseball.) Once it was surgically removed, my menstrual cycle returned.
Following the route of regular medicine into my 30’s, my gynecologist had me try out 2 or 3 different contraceptive pills to help with my menstrual issues. They helped to a point but I was still experiencing symptoms and my periods were irregular.
Throughout the years I became more cognizant of when I experienced stress, and how in turn this would have an impact on my menstrual period especially when it came to PMS and dysmenorrhea (painful periods and cramping.) I began to get really curious and started investigating what both regular medicine as well as complementary & alternative medicine (CAM) had to offer as a means for either relieving or removing the symptoms of these menstrual cycle disorders.
Types of Complementary & Alternative Medicine. These include:
- Chinese or Oriental Medicine
I went on to study Chinese Medicine and also Maharishi Ayurveda and found that they both made great inroads into relieving the symptoms. I continued testing out various modalities, herbs, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, I refined my diet, I became a Certified Personal Trainer. I exercised regularly and was very physically fit.
However, again as I progressed in years and moved into my 40’s, there were still symptoms that neither regular medicine, complimentary & alternative medicine, diet nor exercise were able to eradicate completely. My periods became heavier and I started bleeding more frequently. After a few years of this I also became anemic and as a result my gynecologist prescribed iron tablets so that I could boost my iron levels.
It seemed like I had exhausted every avenue until one day in 2011, I had the most fortunate experience that changed my life. I met Guruji Mahendra Trivedi.
Guruji Mahendra Trivedi has an extraordinary gift and is the founder of the Trivedi Effect®. He has the unique ability to harness the energy from the universe and is able to transmit it anywhere on earth. He can infuse this “Life Force” energy into both living organisms and non-living materials to optimize their potential. This exceptional phenomenon has become acclaimed internationally as the Trivedi Effect®.
Through utilizing the potential of the human biofield, Mahendra Trivedi has successfully transformed both living organisms and non-living material at the atomic, molecular and cellular structures of existence to significantly enhance, raise the potency and alter the characteristics and behavior of the subject matter being treated. This groundbreaking research constitutes an invaluable body of knowledge for scientists to understand the power of consciousness.
The Trivedi Effect® is the only scientifically proven phenomenon in which a person can harness this inherently intelligent energy and transmit it anywhere in the world. It stands at the forefront of a new paradigm in science that will help shape the future for all of mankind. In addition to optimizing the human condition, it has the power to transform the cellular structures of all living organisms and has the incredible capacity to permanently alter the atomic structures of non-living materials.
After receiving my very first Blessing (also known as an Energy Transmission) from Guruji I began to experience a number of changes physically. There was such a profound shift, that I wanted to continue the momentum and I commenced on a program where I received this energy on a regular basis.
One of the biggest changes that I noticed was with my menstrual cycle. All the symptoms completely disappeared. My cycle became more regular. The bleeding became lighter and I no longer had heavy bleeding. I stopped being anemic and there was no pain. In fact, I never had any pain with my menstrual period ever again. Furthermore, I had greater stamina, more energy, I slept better and I had a feeling of well-being and happiness that surpassed anything that I’d ever experienced in my life.
The Trivedi Effect has absolutely no side effects and is completely non-invasive. The Energy Transmissions provide relief from symptoms and can eliminate health issues like menstrual cycle disorders.
The impact of the Trivedi Effect® has been tested, measured, documented and validated with the most sophisticated technologies available to modern science. Mr. Trivedi has participated in over 4,000 experiments at numerous research institutes and universities across the globe and his research is featured in over 130 countries. The Trivedi Effect has been documented in over 350 peer-reviewed science journals in the fields of agriculture, biotechnology, genetics, cancer, human health and materials science. These publications are available in over 3,000 university library websites worldwide and over 1,200 universities within the U.S. including top universities such as Harvard, Penn State University, MIT, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Oxford, Cambridge and research institutes such as the National Institutes of Health.
Over 250,000 people worldwide have experienced the positive results of The Trivedi Effect®. People from all around the world have given their testimonies about the remarkable properties of this phenomenon as they experienced dramatic relief and in many cases reported elimination of menstrual problems and PMS, reduced stress, anxiety and depression, more sexual fulfillment, stronger libido, improvement in overall health, increased energy levels, better quality sleep, mental peace and emotional well-being after receiving these energy transmissions.
