This is adressed to all those who teach female adults as well as to the ladies themselves.

I have a couple of female students who train hard for three weeks, then have a week off because they have their period and then resume as normal almost every month. Neither suffer from any gynacalogical condition.

I really don't mean to be unsympathetic, but menstruation is a normal, healthy part of being female, NOT an illness.

Sitting in a chair with a hot water bottle and complaining does not make you feel better, doing excercise does actually relieves stomach cramps as well as take your mind off them.

One of these ladies is only sixteen but the other is in her thirties and has been through CHILDBIRTH for goodness sake. Neither ar by any means beginners.

What do you think, am I a heartltess cow or are they making a fuss about nothing? Do other instructors have students like this? (obviously male instructors may be given a different reason for missed lessons but may have noticed a monthly pattern.)
