Optimiser la 2eme semaine de son cycle-Gapianne
Cycle hormonal

Optimize the 2nd week of your cycle

This period of the cycle is from D7 to D13 or the week after your period. This is called the pre-ovulation phase or the follicular phase . It is the spring of your cycle, you are in full bloom.


It is a dynamic phase where you find your energy , your ambition, your motivation, your confidence, your physical endurance, so it's time to do a little more cardio or active sport ! We want to achieve things, we are on top, but we still need to recharge so we take the opportunity to get oxygen, to get some fresh air, to breathe well.

What happens physiologically

It is the production and maturation of a follicle . Concretely, it is the production of estrogen s FSH which will ensure the maturation of the follicles and under the effect of estrogen Oe the endometrium is built to provide for the implantation of a potential fertilized oocyte.

What food for those days?

We prefer:

  • Proteins : association of cereals and legumes during the same meal for vegetarians
  • We think of wheat germ , it is a concentrate of vitamins and mineral salts that you can easily introduce into your diet. It is also high in protein!
  • We continue with the iron
  • We stock up on superfoods like sprouted seeds in your diet: seaweed, nettle powder, acai, guarana, maca, hemp seeds, raw cocoa, chia seeds, sprouted seeds , spirulina, barley grass and chlorophyll.
  • Green juices
  • Vitamin D
  • Consider adrenal supports : maca, adaptogenic herbs, black spruce.

We avoid exciting ... and we sway like Beyoncé!
