  • Yes, you can. You may flow a little more but it helps with cramps. I use a heavier pad when I exercise during that time. I usually cut back a little because of my energy level, but it does help with the cramps.

  • you can still exercise- it will actually help with cramps. and it doesn't usually make you bleed more or less.

  • You will prabablly bleed just the same maybe a little more but exercise helps with cramping and bloating, I would just wear a tampon...

  • Yes, you can. You may bleed more and it will help with cramps. Your period may end faster too.
