Fitness and Menstrual Health

I read this really interesting article the other day about the relationship between physical activity and menstruation. It does a really good job of explaining a lot of complicated science in a very digestible way. Just to preface the article, however, it is important to know that many people have irregular periods, and that does not necessarily mean that anything is wrong! As the article mentions, periods can change based on a lot of different factors. I think it’s good to be aware of when changes in patterns are not concerning and when they can become a problem.
