We don’t talk much about it, but having s*x during the menstrual cycle brings many benefits to women’s health as long as you protect yourself well.
Whether you have no problem maintaining an active s*x life during your rules or the very idea disgusts you deeply, there is still a real taboo on s*x in the menstrual cycle. Of course, this practice requires a little technical organization to avoid staining our favorite sheets, but why deprive yourself of a moment of pleasure during this unpleasant period? Here are some good reasons to listen only to what you want, without thinking about the rest.
DECREASE CYCLE TIME
Even if your period is not very heavy, the site explains, you will probably notice more bleeding after s*x, and especially after an orgasm. The cause is an increase in endometrial loss, which ultimately will help you shorten your period.
RELIEVE PAIN AND STRESS
Endorphins released by the brain during s*x are powerful pain-relieving hormones, which help fight menstrual cramps. They also make it possible to reduce stress and therefore to better live the period of the rules.
TAKE MORE PLEASURE
You have probably noticed that your libido is very active at this time of the month. This is because menstruation makes women more sensitive to s*xual pleasure, which increases sensations during intercourse.
PRECAUTIONS TO REMEMBER
Menstrual blood is not an “impure blood” as we have long been led to believe, on the other hand, women are more at risk of sexually transmitted infections during this period. Remember to protect yourself properly with a condom. Periods offer a protective barrier, neither against infections nor against pregnancy, because you could be ovulating.
