Could starting an exercise routine cause your period to come early?

Just started working out fairly regularly. My period has been pretty regular for a long time, but just came about a week early. Could this because of working out?

  • It is possible. When you are losing weight, it causes your estrogen to rise. The more estrogen you have, but thicker the lining of your uterus is. So it's possible your body decided to get rid of it early. :) Once your body gets used to it, it won't happen anymore.
