Hi, I am a 24 year old female and since the first time I got my period, I have always gotten it at almost the same date every date (maybe 1 or 2 days difference). I have hardly exercised my whole life and finally took the decision to lead an active lifestyle and so started exercising a week before.
My latest period was 10 days ago and today I exercised in spite of feeling really weak. After exercising, when I went to the bathroom to pee, I noticed blood. I really freaked out. This has never happened to me! Ever! I always get my period on the dot. What is going on? Is it because of the exercise? Did I stress my body beyond its capacity?
