Sex on my period? Oh my gosh?? No ways!🚫🚫🚫

YES WAYS!

It’s true, most women probably don’t think they can feel sexy during their period week. You’re feeling like Humpty Dumpty.
Your breasts are swollen and sore, menstrual cramps are punching your stomach from the unborn child that you are glad you didn’t bare, shooting leg pain as if tiny period soldiers are having target practise, migraines, and with your hormones all over the place, the thought of getting into bed (not just to eat a McFlurry and watch Friends for the 10th time) is unheard of.

BUT, have you ever heard the term, period sex is the best sex? Probably not. But I’m here to tell you why it is. 🧐

You can totally have sex while you’re on your period. Unless you’re especially squeamish, there’s no need to avoid sexual activity during your period. Though period sex can be a bit messy, it is safe. And, having sex when you are menstruating can actually offer a few advantages.

What are the benefits? It can give you relief from cramps!
Orgasms may relieve menstrual cramps. Do you know how cramps work? It is a result of your uterus contracting to release its lining. When you have an orgasm, the muscles of your uterus also contract. Then they release. That release should bring some relief from period cramps. Sex also triggers the release endorphins, which make you feel good. Plus, engaging in sexual activity occupies your mind, which may help take it off your menstrual discomfort.

 

If you still don’t feel sexy enough to have sex, then my advice to you is masturbate your way to freedom, ladies! The stronger the orgasm, the better it will relieve your pain.

 

In a woman’s lifetime, on average she would have spend 6 years in total on her period. That’s 6 years of great sex you could be enjoying! ( Yes you, stop making that face and listen).😧

We’re usually more keen around our periods, due to hormone fluctuations. This is a time when your sex drive is higher. As Leona Lewis would say ‘ I keep bleeding love.’ – literally. You can put away the KY during your period. Blood acts as a natural lubricant. Sounds gross, works great. 🤪 If you plan to have sex during your period and you’re wearing a tampon, you need to remove it beforehand. A forgotten tampon can get pushed so far up into your vagina during sex that you’ll need to see a doctor to have it removed. Although less likely, it’s always possible that you could become pregnant. If you’re not trying to get pregnant, you should have protected sex every time. You can use some form of contraception like wearing a condom or taking birth control pills.

‘But Tracyyyyyy, it’s messy and I don’t want it to look like an episode of CSI Miami in my panties!’ Angels, you may be surprised that when you have sex on your period, it doesn’t look like a murder scene when it’s over. If you have sex during the end of your period, you might even find that there’s no mess at all! Also, having sex may make your periods shorter. Muscle contractions during an orgasm push out the uterine contents faster. That could result in shorter periods.(You’re starting to stop making that face aren’t you?)😏

Having sex on your period can increase your chances of getting an STI. Viruses like HIV or Hepatitis and may be present in menstrual blood. These viruses live in blood, and they can spread through contact with infected menstrual blood. So it’s essential to use a condom to decrease your chances of getting infected. If you’re still feeling grossed out about the blood, just remember that sex involves a wide range of fluids and excretions, including sweat, urine, sperm, and even fecal matter. So, menstrual blood shouldn’t be the body excretion that deters you from intercourse.

And on that note, don’t forget that women happily get men’s fluids inside and on them without a big fuss! Why should period blood be different? Its almost 2020 (I don’t know what this means but people keep saying it in a way that makes what they’ve said previously have a bigger impression).

Don’t let your period put a halt to your sex life. If you do a little prep work, sex can be just as enjoyable during those five or so days as it is the rest of the month. You might be surprised to find that sex is even more exciting during your period. Period.
