Over many years, the female body requires adaptations to menstrual cycles, at the same time that life passes between stress, sleepless nights, motherhood, sadness and joy ... many times we are struggling and our body responds as we need, other times They do not have the capacity due to tiredness , lack of energy and will. Our immune system is intrinsically linked to these needs, since when we exceed our capabilities, we demand too much of its response.

The relationship between menstrual cycles and the immune system is related in several ways :
