I already had switched to a fairly clean diet (organic, mostly plant-based) and did my best to minimize stress (I mean, c’mon, easier said than done) after having some GI issues. I also have been using a menstrual cup for about 2.5 years and noticed my flow seemed a little lighter. These changes at least got my cycle to be somewhat predictable (I was previously diagnosed with PCOS and my cycles could be up to 50 days; now I’m down to 35 at the most). However, I have ALWAYS struggled with cramps the day before I got my period, the first day, and leading into the second. I would also pass several sizable clots the first couple days. There have been times that I would have to stay home from school or work because I couldn’t function with the pain and heavy flow. It never crossed my mind that this isn’t “normal.” I always thought these things were normal for me and that was just the luck of the draw. I mean, tons of women/trans men suffer from cramping.
I was at the tail-end of my luteal phase when I read this book and implemented a few of the supplements suggested and switched to decaf right before my period was supposed to start. I didn’t have any expectations since I was already doing a lot of the things the book suggested (so my transition was really minimal), but then my period came and I had. no. cramps. NONE! The “pain” was sort of like a dull headache just on day one. I was in such bliss and felt absolutely amazing for the first time EVER with my period. Let me tell you, it is a crazy empowering feeling! I am still in shock and could cry at the thought of a painless period. Additionally, the color was just as the book explained. No old blood (which I would typically start and end with).
While I’m certainly hopeful that when my period comes next cycle I will have the same experience, I’m so thankful to Alisa and her research to give me at least one good period in 25 years! It IS possible! I feel obligated to share this book with every woman I know! I will update next cycle to note any changes.
Happy to report that I had another period with minimal pain. This time I had a little more discomfort just the first day, but it was NOTHING compared to what I experienced in the past. Just a twinge periodically. I wasn’t consistent with the supplements, so this cycle I’ll be sure to be more diligent about taking them. I’ll update this review periodically if I note something additional about my experience that may be beneficial or interesting for others.
I felt overwhelmed by this topic for the longest time because I didn't know where to get started, and Alisa makes it so simple and approachable to follow along. I only WISH I had this book years ago -it's a must-read for anyone in their menstrual years.
So thankful for Alisa and the work she's doing.
There's also a lot of framing that women's bodies are viewed as a burden in this book, and the general tone was that girls and women are told their bodies are bad/gross/disruptive, which is clearly the experience of the author. It may even be true to my moms generation and I'm sure some of my own generation, but with gratitude I can say that is not my experience, and so I felt like I couldn't relate to the majority of the tone of the book.
I was hoping this book would teach me more about my hormones and how they effect my physiology than it did. I was able to make a couple of charts in a Word doc that summed up the entirety of usable information in this book, and obviously that information is less based on science (because there isn't much) than it was on the authors observations on her own physiology with loose connections made to hormone fluctuations.
If you need to read something to let you know that you're not alone in your frustration; this is the book for you. If you're looking for a lot of usable information, get this from the library and flip to the charts to see what she observed, and then keep looking for another book while journaling how your own body feels throughout your cycle.
I have been following Alisa for years, and I've recommended her work to my sister, cousins, and girlfriends. I just started reading In The FLO, and I'm really excited to dive more deeply into her new book.
From what I've read so far, Alisa very clearly breaks down how to plan your work, social life, exercise, relationship, and creativity around each phase of your cycle. I love the planner and the charts for each phase - super helpful.
I have used cycle syncing to plan the best times for my creative work so that I get more done in less time.
It has also changed the way that I work out. I used to push myself to my limits, thinking that I would get better results. Well, it finally sunk in that taking rest days in certain phases has actually made me stronger and more fit!
If you want to learn how to maximize your energy and time using your unique timing, this is the book for you.
