Quick question

Does anyone find that doing weight bearing exercise while on your period causes more cramping and or heavier bleeding? Or sometimes I think the danged period is over and a couple days later go to do some physical type things out in the garden or whatever only to cramp up and bleed some more. Is it all in my head? Would I probably experience the cramps and bleeding whether or not I did any shoveling or lifting? Eager to hear your experiences with this.

Any kind of extra movement with fibroids made me bleed. If I did any heavy lifting, bending, (doing laundry was a pain in the you-know-what) or if I was rushing around - I had the worst problem traveling - not sure if it was walking all that way through the airport (over 1 mile of walking) and then carrying my luggage and sitting in that cramped seat... had to go to the ER right off the plane because I bled through my clothes and pretty much destroyed the bathroom and most of my clothes. Just take it easy - some light cardio is good for the anemia and probably a little bit of weight bearing exercise, but if you're bleeding more afterward, take it easy. I bled more laying down with a tampon inserted. Those things are tricky! (EVIL LITTLE SUCKERS!)

Thank you, so not glad you had to endure that but happy to know I'm not crazy. Why don't the doctors tell us these things? Do they just not know about it? Hmmmm. Well, we know now, so we can tell others.
