Can I still run and play sports when I have my period?
If not, we wouldn’t have the WNBA, now would we? It’s perfectly fine to work out when you have your period. In fact, being active helps relieve cramping by releasing endorphins, those feel-good chemicals in your bod.
Playing sports can also help diminish the pain of minor cramps because it gets the oxygen flowing to your uterine muscle. In other words, having your period is a totally lame excuse for skipping track practice. Nice try!
