The majority of women out there may feel that having their monthly period means that sex is inevitably off-limits.
Maybe you don’t feel at ease being intimate during your period, or maybe you feel unappealing or just unclean.
Maybe your partner isn’t comfortable with intimacy while you’re menstruating. However, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy intimacy at all times of your menstrual cycle. In fact, it may bring several health benefits.
In a post published by sex and relationship educator and therapist Laura Berman, she explains: “Sex while you are menstruating can help ease the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. Many women say that orgasms can ease their cramps and the orgasmic contractions of the uterus offer a soothing internal massage.
Also, orgasms release endorphins, natural painkillers and mood enhancers, which can help soothe the cramps, headaches, mild depression, and irritability sometimes associated with periods.”
So next time you’re prudish about having sex during that time of the month? Don’t be, just remember to take your usual safety measures to prevent unwelcome pregnancy and STDs.
And with a few changes to your normal routine, you can take pleasure in a whole new sexual experience.
