The Benefits of Exercise for Menstrual Disorders Treatments

Menstrual disorders that commonly experienced by almost all women are premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and primary dysmenorrhea. Both of them can widely affect women’s mood and daily activities. Some of them may opt for medical treatment, but some others choose for exercise to treat menstrual disorders. As stated by obstetricians and gynecologists, aerobic exercise is effectively lessened the symptoms of PMS.

The Study of Physical Activity Effects

In the World Applied Sciences Journal, a study found that physical activity had a positive impact to treat primary dysmenorrhea symptoms in the same way like medical treatments. In the study, the experimental groups should follow some physical activity protocol including 5-10 minutes warm-up, 30-45 minutes progressive stretching pelvic region exercise, 10-15 minutes partner stretching exercise, 10-15 minutes hip girdles muscle resistance exercise, and 10-15 minutes cool down. The result showed after 8-weeks of training there is a reduction on volume and rate of bleeding, the length of menstrual pain, and number of drugs consumed such as Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. Here, physical activity helps to pump more blood to faster release and transfer endorphins that counteract with prostaglandins. The prostaglandins will make the uterine muscle contract then lead to some pain. When the production of prostaglandins is lower, it means the length of menstrual pain will be lowered too.
