Exercising causes painful periods

Kb118 profile image

I've painful periods only if I start doing some heavy exercises like lunges, crunches, skipping. If I don't strain myself with those exercise, then I've normal periods with not so much pain. Should I be concerned about it??

Is that if you do those exercises at any point in the month, or is if you do them immediately prior/during your period?

At any point in the month

Typically that is a sign of an underlying issue - which could be relatively benign or possibly more serious. It would be best to get checked out by a doctor.
