The menstrual period is a day for women to detoxify. During the few days of menstruation, they will experience blood discharge. This includes uterine toxins, waste and garbage, shed endometrium, normal blood and so on. If the blood circulation is not smooth, it will cause dysmenorrhea. In other words, the blood is not discharged, which is bad for health. Some people think that exercise can promote the flow of qi and blood, so they choose to do exercise during menstruation. Remind that the idea is good, but it is best not to move during the menstrual period, otherwise it will damage the body. That is to say, some unsuitable sports should be eliminated in time.
What are the unsuitable sports for menstruation?
Swimming is mostly done in public swimming pools, and the more people there are, the dirtier the pool water will be. It is important to know that during menstruation, the uterine mouth is slightly open. If you swim in the pool, bacteria or dirt in the water can easily invade the body from the vagina, and then enter the uterus through the opened uterine mouth Inside the cavity, it eventually induces inflammation of the uterus.
In addition, when you are menstruating, you are most afraid of the cold. If you keep soaking in the water, both the blood vessels and the uterine cavity will be stimulated by cold water. In this way, there will be a contraction reaction, which will lead to a decrease in menstrual blood volume, and even amenorrhea.
Therefore, swimming is not suitable for menstrual periods. If women want to move their bodies, remember to avoid them.
2. Exercise to increase abdominal pressure
Many women have heard that weight loss during menstruation is very effective, so they will do some exercises to help lose weight. For example, push-ups, squats, tablet support, etc. Although these exercises are very good for weight loss, they are not suitable for menstruation. Because when doing these exercises, it will increase abdominal pressure, resulting in accelerated blood circulation in the pelvic cavity, which can easily lead to longer days of menstrual bleeding and aggravate symptoms such as dysmenorrhea.
Therefore, in order to reduce the occurrence of menstrual discomfort, it is better to stay away from exercises that increase abdominal pressure.
It is okay if you want to exercise, but exercise during menstruation is different from daily exercise. In addition to avoiding sports that you cannot do, some important points must also be kept in mind:
1. Pay attention to make yourself in a comfortable state
If you plan to exercise during menstruation, it is recommended to use a tampon because it is inserted directly into the vagina, which is light and uncomfortable. If the sanitary napkin is on the pad, the sanitary napkin can easily move when the body is easily moved during exercise, which will bring uncomfortable feeling to women. However, it should be remembered that it should not be used for too long, because the absorption capacity of the tampon is strong. If it is left for too long, the water in the vagina will also be absorbed, easily causing vaginal dryness, and even poisoning.
2. Pay attention to your physical condition
If you plan to exercise, look at your state. If you have severe dysmenorrhea when you come to menstruation, if you are struggling to move one step, I advise you to take a good rest. Exercise will only make dysmenorrhea worse and make you more uncomfortable. There is also a woman who is fatigued and dizzy. It is also recommended not to exercise during menstruation. Otherwise, it is easy to have accidents such as fainting during the exercise.
What exercise is suitable for menstruation
1. Meditation Yoga
Meditation yoga is a very quiet and quiet exercise. The whole person sits cross-legged, calming down, closing their eyes and raising their minds, so that they are in a state of emptying. Doing this consistently will calm you down and relieve pain.
During menstruation, walking is the best way to exercise. Because the intensity is small, and there are no venue restrictions. After dinner, after a short break, you can go downstairs, or go to a nearby park. When walking, all limbs are swinging, which is conducive to circulation of qi and blood and helps menstrual blood to be discharged better.
