Can I exercise during menstruation? Maybe for women often hesitate to exercise during menstruation, especially for women who feel cramps.
Fear of injury is another consideration when exercising while menstruating.
Exercise when it turns out it actually can reduce menstrual cramps if exercise is done routinely rather than just once or twice.
Regular exercise during menstruation can reduce back pain and stomach cramps. This is because the body will produce “endorphins” which help relieve pain. Endorphins will also make the body more relaxed and less stressed when facing menstrual cramps.
Things to note are the types of exercise that are suitable to do during menstruation to prevent injury and not aggravate menstrual cramps.
Some sports options that are suitable for women who are menstruating are jogging, biking, and walking.
Avoid some strenuous exercise when women are menstruating, namely lifting weights, Muay Thai, basketball, swimming.
Keep Steem On!
