Could exercise stop your period?

 
 

Hey girl! I often thought that exercising can delay your period, and I’ve learned that there is some truth to this but only in extreme cases.

 

First, you must ask yourself how much you exercise. If you exercise moderately, then it will not harm your menstrual cycle. If you do light exercise during your period, it can actually help get rid of ouchy symptoms by keeping the blood pumping through your system, sending endorphins (‘happy’ hormones) shooting through your bod and kill some of the cramping and back pain too!

 

Now for the dark-side of exercising…

 

The only way that exercising can delay your period or make them irregular is if you are exercising excessively. If you’re working out every day for hours at a time and dropping significant weight, then you will exhibit amenorrhea, which is when your period says “bye bye!”

 

Because working out takes lots of energy, if you do it obsessively, your body has to turn off other functions that require energy, e.g. menstruation.  However, there is some good news: Amenorrhea is not a DISEASE but a symptom of a larger issue. If you are working out like crazy and have skipped a period or two, once you’ve cut down the workouts and get your weight back up a bit, your periods should return.

 

But don’t always think that the crimson wave leaving is all about your weight. You should always check with your family doctor and/or gynecologist to make sure that there are no bigger problems involved.
