Exercise during my period is NOT an option. I have PCOS and get contractions along with the cramps, bleed extremely heavily, and clot. I have seen a doctor, yes, but that doesn't mean I'm suddenly going to be jumping up and running on the treadmill. What it does mean is that I'll be lying low and on narcotics to dull the pain, along with having nausea and the occasional migraine.
If you're one of those "normal" women who get to exercise and leave the house during your period, lucky you. This advice does not apply to all, and a trip to the doctor isn't necessarily going to change your life.
