they say exercising brings on ya periods... i was just wonderin does lack of exercising slow things down?? i always used to be on my feet with my old job, but last few months im sat in a office allday, and dont exercise at all!!!
im 4 days late and im just hoping its not delayed due to exercise??? im on right now.
I think it's more like extremes -- for example maybe running 70 miles a week can delay your periods or stop your periods, probably because of low body fat. Similarly, not exercising MIGHT do the same thing, but I think it would be more due to if you gained a great amount of weight from not exercising. But I'm not an expert, just my opinion.
BUT there is evidence to suggest that moderate exercise can promote fertility! Getting moving 30 minutes everyday and getting your heart rate up can do a lot of good things.
This is really interesting. I am not sure of the answer, but am eager to hear what others have to say. I used to work out and work a lot and then took time off to be a student. I stopped going to the gym and wasn't really on my feet as much anymore (I got kind of lazy lol) and my periods were the same. I've always been pretty regular though so I'm not sure if that would affect it too. On the other hand, when I went back to the gym and started being more active they weren't delayed either. Of course I wasn't working out wicked hard... I just worked out for an hour and a half each morning, 5x a week.
