How Does Your Period Affect Your Workouts?

I feel lucky because when it's "that time of the month," my symptoms are fairly mild. Aside from a little cramping and a bloated belly, Aunt Flo doesn't interfere with my life too much. I try to stick to my regular exercise routine because it actually relieves my discomfort and always lifts my mood. The only thing I have to do is wear a more supportive sports bra — bouncing around and soreness is not a good combo. That's just me though. I know some women are so uncomfortable when they have their period, that slipping on spandex and sneakers is the last thing on their mind. What about you?
