    How do female athletes deal with their periods? What do they do during game seasons? Is it possible to push periods for the whole season?



    Not for all women, periods are debilitating. Today, women work in almost all the fields very successfully. Periods are not at all a factor that affects their efficiency. There might be discomfort like we are uncomfortable when we are going through a flu.
    Athletes have a great physical condition and a healthy BMI to easily overcome the pain. Just a little bit of more sleep or a pain medicine would help I guess.



    Athletes often are in the lowest range of Body Mass Index (BMI) that might lead to Amenorrhoea. This is a condition that occurs as a result of excessive exercising. This may lead to irregular periods.



    Really, many athletes perform effectively through their periods. They have an option of taking hormonal contraceptive pills or using IUD that would stop monthly cycle.



    It is definitely possible to push periods using birth-control pills and IUD. And not all women have severe period symptoms. Gymnasts and swimmers might use tampon and as the previous members said, they might even experience Amenorrhoea.



    I guess they would play when they have their periods. Periods are not some kind of a disease; it is just another cycle. There are hundreds of women who have set Olympic records while on their periods!



    Women can normally play and be active while on their periods unless they have some severe abnormality. In any case, they might get some medical help and treatments.
    I have always admired athletes for their determination and strength. Superwomen!
