Don’t let the period stop your orgasms.
As an avid reader and a subscriber to many health & sexual magazines, I recently came across a piece about “Having sex on periods is entirely safe or not?”. There were many witty comments on the article which got my attention. However, having sex on periods is a couple’s choice. We can’t judge anyone. Though I’m a sex blogger and talking about period sex, menstruation, or anything sexual is not at all taboo for me. Therefore, I penned down a helpful post for my readers who may think making out during sex is gross or messy.
I still remember that time when I got intimate the first time during periods; I thought it would be nasty but trust me it was pleasurable, sensual and so arousing. The joys I experienced during first-period sex were majestic and something I hadn’t imagined. Later I came to know that sex during periods has impressive health benefits – from curing the soreness to boosting the mood, restoring the relationship to improving the sleep. Period-sex is breathtaking.
Here in this article, I’ve covered some exciting health benefits of sex during periods. Go ahead! You’d thank me later!
Why the desire for sex increases during periods?
Have you ever wondered when we are on our periods the excitement to get intimate is habitually high as compared to regular days? Because during periods, the ratio of estrogen and progesterone — the hormones produced in the ovaries fluctuates the most. A woman’s body experiences a boost in estrogen, which leads to increase libido before a period, while the boost in progesterone leads to a lower sex drive.
By the time of ovulation, the estrogen levels go up, reaching the peak, that’s the reason a woman’s libido gets more intense during the period. It follows ovulation by an increase in progesterone production, which may lead to a drop in your sex drive.
During menstruation and a few days after it, the concentration of both hormones is low, which can cause a decrease in sexual desire.
