Okay, so exercise is probably the last thing you want to do when your stomach hurts, but it’s really good for reducing menstrual pain. When you get up and move your heart rate increases, you sweat more, and your blood pumps through your body quicker. This releases endorphins in the brain which makes you feel better and the more you exercise, the more you’ll realize you’re not focusing on the pain at all!
Over a matter of months, you’ll also see that the pain decreases. The fitter you are, the less pain you suffer when your muscles ache.
