Does women should not exercise during their menstrual period?

Women can do whatever they want during menstruation - there's nothing that they cannot do during menstruation that they wouldn't be able to do normally. Menstruation can sometimes be uncomfortable so excessive exercise may be painful, but equally exercise can sometimes help ease menstrual cramps - a woman should do whatever she feels comfortable with during menstruation, if she finds exercise is uncomfortable she should stop and consider ore gentle exercise.
