Exercise affects the menstrual cycle by elevating the metabolism. Metabolism is responsible for essentially sustaining chemical reactions in the body like menstruation. When a woman exercises regularly, she increases her muscle endurance and flexibility. This, in turn, causes reactions elsewhere, too. The heart, digestive-tract and muscles in the uterine wall become stronger. The added strength also stimulates estrogen production. A woman needs estrogen to ovulate, and build the lining of her uterus. This process ultimately prepares her body for pregnancy. :mrgreen:

On the other hand, too much exercise can adversely affect the menstrual cycle causing dramatic irregularity. Female athletes often experience irregular menstrual cycles due to loss of body fat. The body may also interpret very heavy exercise as an abnormality, which may stop a menstrual cycle entirely. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Usually if you are athletic enough you might not even get your period. This happened to several girls while I was in high school.

Lack of exercise or too little exercise increases your exposure to premenstrual syndrome, making menstruation more inconvenient.

Though menstruation can cause some unpleasant symptoms like cramps and bloating that make you feel like not doing much of anything, exercise can actually be beneficial and helpful at this time of the month. In fact, exercise can help get rid of cramps, headaches and bloating caused by menstruation. Physical activity releases endorphins into the body, which can improve your mood and get rid of feelings of depression or anxiety. :( :( :( :(

Does bleeding between periods always mean something is wrong? :?: :?:

No, not necessarily. But you should see your doctor promptly so he or she can determine the cause. Bleeding between periods can have a number of causes, only some of them serious. :!: :!:

several birth control methods can cause periods to stop and can even be designed for just that purpose. Talk to your doctor if you are normally regular but start skipping periods. :!: :!:
