Lie face down on the floor. Make fists with both your hands and place them under your hips. This prevents compression of the lumbar spine while doing the exercise.

Lower the leg and slowly return to your original position. Repeat on the left side. Remember to keep your hips resting on your fists. Repeat 10 times.
Repeat 10 times with both legs together.
Stretch 2: The Pump
This exercise improves blood circulation through the pelvis, thereby promoting healthier ovarian function. It helps relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and controls excessive bleeding in premenopausal women. The exercise helps calm anxiety and also strengthens the back and abdominal muscles.
Lie down and press the small of your back into the floor. This permits you to use your abdominal muscles without straining your lower back.
Raise your right leg slowly while breathing in. Keep your back flat on the floor and let the rest of your body remain relaxed. Move your leg very slowly; imagine your leg being pulled up smoothly by a spring. Do not move your leg in a jerky manner. Hold for a few breaths. Lower your leg and breathe out.
Repeat the same exercise on your left side. Then alternate legs, repeating the exercise 5 to 10 times.
Stretch 3: Wide Angle Pose

Bring legs together and hold for 1 minute.
