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?April 2, 2017 at 12:22 PM #2812
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.April 3, 2017 at 7:33 AM #2813
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.April 6, 2017 at 7:27 PM #2814
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.April 8, 2017 at 1:26 AM #2815
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.April 10, 2017 at 1:41 PM #2816
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!April 17, 2017 at 4:03 PM #2817
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!
