    Training affect your menstrual cycle? By Love to Learn - 11-27-2008 01:34 PM


    Hi ladies,

    I am 17 years old and slightly concerned. I have been training in karate for almost a year and a half 3 times a week.

    My question is can training affect your cycle? I have noticed the last few months my periods have been much less painful and lighter than normal, and this month I have skipped altogether. There is no chance I am pregnant so I am thinking it is either the sudden cold snap that has hit where i live that has affected it, stress (two weeks ago a member of my family was diagnosed with cancer which affected me badly) or the training affecting me. a friend of mine said it could be because my body is young and unsettled. It is not the first time this has happened but it still worries me lol. i spoke with my mum about it and she thinks it is ok, she suffered badly when she was my age.

    What do you all think?

    Thanks for your time
