The Effectiveness Of Taking Menstrual Delay Medication And Then Exercising?
Good morning, I want to ask if I am taking a menstrual delay medicine and I am doing activities such as sports. Will the drug still work well and if I exercise vigorously menstrual bleeding will come out, thank you
Hi Lisa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Menstruation can occur when the level of the hormone progesterone in the body decreases. This progesterone has a function to ripen and maintain the endometrial lining in the uterus and prevent this lining from shedding. This layer is the layer where the fetus will stick to when pregnancy occurs, and this layer is also the same layer that will shed into menstrual blood if pregnancy does not occur.
If pregnancy does not occur, the level of progesterone in the body will drop and the lining of the endometrium will shed. Menstrual delay drugs are drugs that contain the hormone progesterone. Because the hormone progesterone is given from outside the body (through drugs that are taken), this hormone will work to maintain the endometrial lining from shedding, so that a person will not experience menstruation.
Sports that are too heavy can indeed affect a woman's natural hormonal conditions. However, the effect of the menstrual delay drug will not be affected by the strenuous exercise. Progesterone levels will remain high and menstruation will still not occur even if you exercise hard. If you take your menstrual delay medicine regularly, chances are that you will not experience menstruation even though you exercise hard.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
