Yes they do. Although they are very active and the constant exercise they do does affect the developing rate, they still have periods. It varies very much in different people though. My friend, who is 15 is a serious gymnast who competes in lots of competitions, got her period when she was 12. Another friend who is also a serious gymnast is 14 now and hasn't started her period!

Hope this helped :)

The exercise is good for it, usually makes it lighten up for a few hours at least, but take it easy if you have to, don't over exert yourself, your coach understands off-days.
