Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this investigation was to examine each numerical value that has been used to determine the normal menstrual cycle through a long-term study of menstrual cycles and their ranges of fluctuation. There is the possibility that the menstrual cycle changes due to environmental factors such as nutrition intake, exercise, and stress. This research investigated the menstrual cycles and fluctuation ranges of the women with regular reproduction function by investigating basal body temperature. Methods: In this research, we asked 104 women who agreed to this survey to measure their basal body temperature during their ovulation cycles for 6 months, 52 of whom continued for the duration of the research. Result and Conclusion: Of the 52 women, who averaged 23 years of age, menstrual cycles ranged from 25-39 days. Fluctuations in the cycles were within 5 days. The number of days in which bleeding occurred ranged from 4-7. And the fluctuations in the number of days in which bleeding occurred were within 1 day. The low phase of basal body temperature lasted 11-25 days, while the high phase of basal body temperature lasted 10-16 days. Compared with past research, an increase in both the time between menstrual cycles and the duration of the cycles was observed.
