Yoga exercise for menstrual pains

The idea of exercise immediately before or during your period may not appeal to you. But exercise releases endorphins.

Research suggests exercise is effective at reducing menstrual pain to the extent it may also eliminate or reduce the need for pain-relief medication. Moderate activity such as walking can be beneficial during your period in place of more strenuous activity.

Yoga is a gentle exercise that also releases endorphins and helps prevent or reduce menstrual symptoms.
