Do you burn more calories during PMS and your period?

I read somewhere that you burn more calories during your period. I was hoping that someone would have an article or web post that could give more info. I couldn't find anything on the Internet. Thanks.

hmmm. Nothing on more cals burned, per se, but I did find some stuff on doing better cardio in the first 2 wks. of your cycle and better strength training in the last 2 weeks. Don't have the link anymore, but try googling "exercise and menstruation."

I've heard more than once that you burn an extra 200 cals a day when you have your period.
