Some men want to have sex with a woman once a day, but sometimes it's inconvenient for women. So can a woman have sex during her period? This is a question many women may want to know.
According to THE NHS's website, NHS Choices, it is ok to have sex during your period. But sex during menstruation can be more likely to spread sexually transmitted diseases, so it should always be used during sex. Condoms can also be used as a contraceptive, and while the risk is lower, unprotected sex during menstruation can lead to pregnancy as it can survive in a woman's body for up to seven days.
What a woman can do when she's not menstruating, she can do when she's menstruating. The answer is yes, including vaginal intercourse, including swimming. However, that doesn't mean you have to do all of these things during your period. Only you can decide what you do or don't do, when you do it, and how you do it. It's normal to have vaginal sex during your period as long as you enjoy it and your partner agrees.
There is a common misconception that a woman's immune system decreases during menstruation, and that vaginal bleeding indicates that there is a wound in the vagina and that she is susceptible to infection. This is wrong. The immune ability of the human body is affected by many factors, and there is no study to prove that menstruation has an obvious and universal influence on immune ability. And menstrual bleeding is not produced by the vagina, but in the womb, through vaginal discharge. The place of vaginal intercourse is completely confined to the vagina, and it is impossible to pass through the cervix to reach the uterus with a wound, so concerns about vaginal bacterial infection are unfounded. Finally, if the amount of bacteria attached to the penis is large enough to penetrate the protective cervix and infect the uterus, then the individual health of the man is of greater concern.
Because a woman's vagina is more lubricated than usual during her period, and there is a feeling of fullness in the pelvic cavity, this makes it easier for women to reach orgasm. Endorphins produced during orgasm can relieve menstrual cramps and headaches due to their analgesic and pleasurable effects.
Even if people recognize that vaginal intercourse during menstruation is not a health risk, it is not unusual for them to have sexual intercourse during menstruation under the influence of psychological and physical factors. Some women have a lower libido during menstruation, and some men or women do not like to see blood during intercourse. These factors can be reasons for not having vaginal sex during menstruation. As long as two people are talking openly and making choices about their actions without pressure, then it's ok to do or not do them.
Before having sex during your period, you need to make sure that your safety and that of your partner are a priority. As you head into your month, check out some safe sex precautions.
Our bodies can get messy for good reasons, and so can sex. However, we can control these situations with some foresight and initiative. Don't put your sex life on hold just because of a few days of traffic. Instead, use it to your advantage, enjoy the sensory experience and leave you wanting more. Having fun sex can lead to closer relationships, and we can always try new things, such as sex toys.
