Knowing the importance of Menstruation

Periods are a common, natural bodily function that every female experience monthly as they reach puberty. They are also a sign that a woman’s reproductive system is healthy. “Periods occur each month from a woman’s menstrual cycle when her ovaries release an egg” (Bras and Body Image). However, periods can also be a sign of a more serious medical condition like endometriosis. The vagina produces a discharge while on your period because the lining of the uterus is shedding. The mucous membranes have an increased amount of mucous when the woman is menstruating. Menstruation must happen monthly. Otherwise, it could signal a problem.

What do changes in exercises cause in your body?

There are some days that it might be impossible to exercise if you are feeling really sluggish. It is an individual decision. Some women feel excellent during their period, and they don’t let it stop them from working out. Some take precautions by using pads or tampons and changing them before or after the workout session. Others will simply work out in different clothing like shorts or a skirt.
