A simple mathematical model framework is developed to describe the hormonal interactions of the human menstrual cycle along the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovaries axis. The framework is designed so that it can be readily extended to model processes that disrupt the normal functioning cycle. The model in its most basic formulation exhibits multiple periodic solutions, one of which shows the key characteristics of a menstrual cycle, while the others indicate possible abnormalities sometimes observed… CONTINUE READING
