I don't go to the gym at all.  Knowing my personality, if I did go to the gym regularly, I'd probably use any excuse I could to not go and period makes a good one.

I usually skip one or two days at the gym when it's the worst, but I try to go after that. I usually do a lighter workout and wear black pants, but I've never had anything happen. It helps me feel less bloated and icky usually.

My birth control stopped my period 4 years ago but I always went, period or not.

There's no gym here, we live in a tiny town, so I have a treadmill here at home.  I still get on it when I'm on my period when the cramps aren't ripping me apart.  There's a good one or two days though that they are bad enough it's all I can do to get through the day.  I've always heard exercise helps but it hasn't for me so I gave up on the idea.  Exercise haven't lessened the symptoms for me at all, just more proof everyone is different.

I don't go to the gym but I walk a lot. I walk about 35 minutes one way walking up and down a hill twice a day. I still walk when I'm on my period.

 I only go to the gym twice a week and so far it hasn't landed on my gym days.
