I do classical aerobics. Many people imagine this not as it really is. This is a very tough sport that requires tremendous endurance.

Like this.

Good luck!

I will do my bit as a representative from swimming. Before the swim, you wear protective equipment, 10 minutes before the start, in any case, you go to the locker room to correct your wetsuit, put on a hat, etc., then you do your business.

But sometimes it's scary to get out of the water.

Usually immediately after the swim, after 2-5 minutes, the fun begins, it feels like the body is recouping for the previous 30-40 minutes of 'rest' ... It is very unpleasant, and if you are still out of breath, running into the locker room, they stop for an interview, for example, oh, I was ready to tear and throw.

But in general, tampons help out great, during the collection period, for example. Where do you plow 14 hours a day and no one cares about your problems.

I can hardly answer your question, I just remembered a story that will work as an illustration.

The Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City (2002) was going on and a powerful ski team came there from the Russian national team, at the head of with 5-time Olympic champion Larisa Lazutina. Before the relay, in which Russia was the undisputed favorite, the Russian team was removed from the start. Because Lazutina showed an increased level of something incomprehensible, incomprehensible in what. Later she had to give explanations about this. Lazutina said to the whole country that she had her period.

A few days later, she was disqualified and the career that she was already going to end, ended a couple of months earlier. A little later, both medals won in Salt Lake City were also taken away from her. Now Lazutina is either a deputy of some deputy aggregator near Moscow, or someone's advisor.

So everyone cope in their own way. Others just can't cope at all.

I do classical aerobics. Many people imagine this not as it really is. This is a very difficult sport, which mainly requires tremendous endurance.

So, on my own, I will say that during a performance, when you go out to the site, you forget about all these problems. Due to adrenaline, due to the fact that your head is completely different, whether you do not notice the pain, or whether it passes at this moment - I do not know. But then, after the performance, you lie on the floor, you drink tons of painkillers, you make heating pads. Well, the hygiene products are the same as on ordinary days.

Answer 5

I'll tell you from my own experience:

If an athlete is not at least 16 years old, then nothing. Just competing directly with "these days." As a rule, during training and competitions, blood is practically not released (does the organism adapt?)

But even if something has leaked somewhere, then everyone treats with understanding. The girls help each other. And the guys tactfully "don't notice."

The tablets are usually taken by older athletes.

With the help of oral contraceptives, menstruation can be shifted by several days without compromising women's health, and they also help relieve pain and reduce bleeding. I think this is common among female athletes.

Answer 7

an acquaintance has been involved in athletics for several years, participated in competitions at the level of Russia. according to her, some time after she started to exercise - and this is serious training several times a week - the body has adapted. these days nothing hurts her, blood loss is less than before, and therefore there is no weakness.
