A FEW RULES TO FOLLOW WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR PERIOD
ALREADY, CAN YOU DO SPORTS WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR PERIOD?
First, let’s answer the question you all ask yourself: “Can I play sports during my periods? “.
The answer is … (Drum roll) YES !!! Indeed, there is no contraindication to the practice of sport during menstruation . You can practice all sports, even the pool! It is up to you to choose the protection mode according to your preferences and the chosen activity.
Just know that the flow is a bit more abundant during the sports session . Think about putting proper protection with a bit more absorbent flow.
RULE # 1: LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!
The rule of thumb when you have your period is above all to LISTEN to !
Not all women are equal before this fact. For some the cycle has no impact on mood, shape state ; For others this moment is sign of evil to the belly, migraine, heavy legs, tiredness , and many other inconveniences! And yes, it is far from being the “small gift” that we offer some advertisers for hygienic protection …
WHAT SPORT TO PRACTICE DURING MENSTRUATION?
Given that not all women are equal to the pain and effect that the rules may have on their body and their morale, so the sport and intensity of it will depend on your physical and mental state .
For women who suffer from fatigue episode , stomach aches … it will be advisable to sports softer . Nothing serves to go depleted more in an intense sporting session. Relax! Turn to sports such as yoga, stretching, walking .
For the most reluctant to sport, know the inactivity can promote the sensation of heavy legs .
CAN I MAKE SURE I DO NOT HAVE ANY RULES DURING A COMPETITION OR CAN I SHIFT THEM OR MOVE THEM FORWARD?
If you are afraid that your menstruation will hinder you during a competition (eg Marathon), be aware that there are many possibilities. In any case, it is important to consult your gynecologist in order to find a solution adapted to your profile.
WHAT IF THEY LAND FOR …?
“Mother Nature not now, I’m in full sports class! “. It is true that if we can calculate approximately the date of their arrivals, in the end the rules still land a little bit unexpectedly , “Coucou c’est moi! Ah, are you going to gym? Too bad for you ! “
In this case, to be reassured, one might be tempted to put a stamp before its sporting session and thus no unpleasant surprise. This is the thing to do not to do !!! And I insist on that. A buffer is only put at the beginning of the rules, never before .
My tricks of girls … just for you :
1 / Write down your cycles in a diary or on your phone in order to predict roughly the appearance of your rules .
2 / Always put protections in your sports bag . It avoids being stupid when the time comes.
3 / Favor in case of doubt, a sport stockings (pants, shorts …) dark ! Leave the white in the dressing room. There are only in pubs where women take such risks 😉
4 / In order to limit infections due to perspiration, please change the protection before and after the workout.
