I'm a bit like this too. Apparently it's because each month you switch ovaries so one can be worse than the other. I find every second month I get alot of pain where in the months in between I'm fine. I have one evil ovary!

haha That's so strange. I have such vague knowledge on the whole subject.

I'm actually quite new to exercising on my period. I usually just lie in bed and wait it out. But this last time was so bad, I nearly went insane, then threw up. I don't know exactly what to do. Does it work to exercise before you cramps start to come? After a certain point, all hell breaks lose and I can't really do much of anything.

I'm the same. I don't really feel energetic per se (or maybe that's because I'm feeling lazy and justifying that 101 other women feel tired during that time, I should too), but when I start on a cardio exercise, I can go on and on and on ... without feeling really tired at all.

What gets me though, is the week before. Or two. Whenever I exercise, and that includes having sex, my stomach cramps like nobody's business. It's often so painful that I had to stop exercising. Be it on a machine, running, sex or swimming. It always comes.

I must be nature's freak.

I'm not sure what the position is called, but on the box of Yogi Moon Cycle Tea (which helps relieve cramps and bloating and even helps with fatigue) there is a period relief pose where you lie on your back with knees to chest. Remember to breathe. It works like a charm every time!

my period is always lighter if I exercise. It usually is only 3 days long anyways but exercise is great for me...pilates and also regular gym cardio workouts: ellipticals/spinning/treadmills. That's why I'll be there tomorrow!!

i find that if i exercise during my period, i won't feel any cramps or pain, so i keep myself active by going for my yoga classes or just do an hr of speed walking.
