Is it okay to exercise during menstruation?

Contrary to some myths, it is safe and beneficial for women to exercise on their menstrual period. However, less physical activities should be undertaken especially when not feeling well compared to an ordinary day and cramps plus abdominal pains seem more intense.

Recommended 10-minute trial menstrual exercises:
Yoga, stretching, walking, jogging, lifting light weights

Take a break after 10 minutes before continuing if you feel up to it. Getting into a bit of action will help ease the discomfort you feel during your menstruation.
