Cycles of the Womb Pt2: The Mother

Four seasons in Four weeks

When we reach the peak of the mountain…

 

In my last article we began by exploring the archetype of the Maiden– the post-menstruation stage of our cycle. The Maiden stage could also be compared to climbing a mountain. The energy building higher and higher, until we reach the stage of bursting open with fertility. We reach the peak of the mountain – Ovulation. We enter into our Mother phase of the cycle. Once at the top of the mountain, we put our bags down and sit to rest under a succulent ripe apple tree. The sun is high and bright on our warm glowing skin. The flowers are open in full bloom, displaying a stunning array of bright, sensual colours. Here we meet with a delightful man, and the next part of our journey unfolds.

The beginning of each cycle is initiated by a hormone called the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. This stimulates the ovary to produce a follicle containing a human egg. As the follicle matures, it in turn secretes oestrogen which prepares the lining of the uterus to receive the fertilised egg. Oestrogen also affects the pituitary gland so that it secretes lutenizing hormone (LH) Around the fourteenth day the mature follicle releases the developed egg into one of the Fallopian tubes. Progesterone inhibits further ovulation and maintains the uterus in readiness for the fertilised egg. If the egg becomes fertilised it travels down the Fallopian tube, embedding itself in the lining of the uterus.”

Succulent fertility – the science of ovulation

Our reproductive system is super busy at this time, as you can imagine. It’s all systems go in a mission to create new life. I can always tell the shift from Maiden into Mother. Every human I come into contact with becomes incredibly sexy, irresistible even! I too feel sexier, slipping on my favourite dresses and red lipstick. My body odour changes, my body temperature becoming warmer, sweatier, releasing pheromones to attract a mate. Our bodies are preparing, doing everything they can to make that baby. It is a human instinct to create life. It’s bedded deep within our Wombs to reproduce, so even if we think we don’t want a baby, our body may have other ideas.

A good way to find out exactly when you ovulate is to have a thermometer by your bed and take your temperature every day. This can be a tedious task, and personally I would often forget! When we are fertile our body temperature will go up quite a noticeable amount (see chart below) we then have around a seven day window in which we can get pregnant.

Sperm can live in the vagina for up to five days. It’s good to take this into account when making love in the maiden phase. I always give myself a window of around ten “fertile” days for my own piece of mind. I read a great book called “Natural Fertility” by Francesca Naish and this book really transformed my life. Prior to reading this book I’d been on my own inner journey to knowing my cycle, and this book really deepened my knowledge of the female reproductive system. If all young women were taught this information at puberty (or earlier) we could really reduce unwanted pregnancies, and contraceptive pill related illnesses. The book is available on Amazon.
