Of course, You can exercise during your periods. The question is, do you want to? If the answer is no, then, by all means, take a rest off the day. Your body could use a break.
If the answer is yes, a little exercise can go a long way.
The release of prostaglandins during your period causes pain and cramping. Exercise is very helpful during periods as the release of endorphins helps with pain relief and also increases oxygenation to the muscle which helps decrease cramping
In terms of what types of exercises you should be doing, that’s ultimately going to depend on what feels right for your body. Focusing on gentle exercises like walking, and yoga stretches will be better
