Sex During Menstruation: Yes or No?

Sexo Durante a Menstruação: Sim ou Não?

Menstruation, for some women, is still a huge taboo. Despite being a natural female condition, there are women who physically push their partners away because they have complexes about this phenomenon.

The truth is that we should only do what we feel comfortable with and the best way is to be completely honest with your partner. On the one hand, having sexual intercourse during the menstrual period has the considerable disadvantage of assuming mandatory contact with blood, something that can trigger discomfort in the other person. However, there are solutions for this factor. On the other hand, sex during menstruation offers countless benefits to women. Get to know them.

Relieves menstrual cramps.

Terrible menstrual cramps are involuntary contractions of the uterus to release the endometrium. Therefore, when a woman has an orgasm, both the vaginal walls and the uterus contract and expand. And this expansion brings some relief to cramps. In addition to relieving this discomfort, orgasm releases endorphins, which will help combat the bad mood and irritability that plagues women during menstruation.

Shortens the duration of menstruation.

The contractions of the uterus muscles caused by orgasm help to expel the endometrium more quickly. Therefore, menstruation becomes shorter.

Increases sexual desire.

During menstruation there is a great hormonal fluctuation. In this way, libido tends to increase considerably.

Natural lubrication.

Many women have to resort to lubricating gels because they don't have enough lubrication. During menstruation, this issue will not be a problem as menstrual blood acts as a natural lubricant.

Relieves migraines.

Most women suffer from headaches during their menstrual period. The good news is that, during orgasm, there is a considerable release of endorphins that will act as a natural painkiller, thus relieving migraines.

What precautions should you take during sex during your menstrual period?

Sexual intercourse during menstruation is really advantageous. Still, some care is needed. If you are menstruating, it is important to use a condom if you suspect sexually transmitted diseases (or even in the absence of any). It is also necessary to pay close attention to tampons. Always remember to remove the tampon before starting sexual intercourse, as if you forget to remove it, it will have to be removed by a specialist.

Another question that raises many doubts is: can having sex during menstruation lead to a possible pregnancy? The answer is yes. If you do not regularly take any contraceptive, it is completely recommended to use a contraceptive method during sexual intercourse, even if you are menstruating. Although the probability of getting pregnant is low, sperm can remain in a woman's body for seven days, which can lead to the fertilization of an egg.

It is important that you speak openly with your partner and tell them how you feel about sexual relations during menstruation, and it is also crucial to know what your opinion is on the subject. If your biggest discomfort is related to the dirt that may occur, choose to use a dark towel on top of the sheets, or try having sex in the shower. This way, you can relax about this topic.

Be open to new adventures, but never do anything you don't really want to do. If the person you have by your side loves you, they will certainly understand your point of view and make you feel at ease in any situation.
