You will have a Short Period

Now isn’t that the dream of every girl? During an uninterrupted period, the involuntary muscles spam along the walls of the uterine causing the blood to flow out in 3-5 days. When you have an orgasm during your periods, the muscles spasms become stronger and push the blood out of the body faster i.e. in a day or two. So, is it time to quit worrying about the blood having gone inside your body or just vanished?


There will be Reduced Pain

The cramps are not only uninvited but beyond pain to bear. They are even more painful because of the stress that periods put a girl in. An orgasm releases many “feel good” hormones into the body that further help in reducing pain and make one feel better in the nick of time.

Sex can Make you Feel Better

Some girls are horny during their periods. While some know it already, others may not even realise. Your best bet would be to find out! So, take the white sheets off and set your wild cat free. Don’t you want to know why it happens? It is the hormonal changes that your body experiences which causes you to feel like having sex (if you do feel like it, that is).


Tips on How to have it Right

Use a cloth: Since you do not want to dirty the mattress, make sure you have got a cloth under your butt when doing the act.

Keep tissues handy: when you do not have a pad under your wet area when you are on your periods, you know how exhilarating that feeling of something waiting to spurt feels like. So, if you are anxious that the blood will run out of your body as soon as you sit upright, keep tissues handy.

Hail missionary!: This should be easy to understand. Sitting straight up by the laws of gravitation means you will not have quite a good time with your partner. The missionary position is, therefore, your friend on those days of the month.

Wear a Condom: Wearing a condom is especially important if you are in a polygamous relationship. That sexually transmitted diseases flow easily through blood than bodily fluid is well known. So, avoid having sex without a condom.

A lot of women are uncomfortable with the thought of having sex when they are on their periods. If you are one of them, remember that even if your partner wants to try it, you must be willing to give it a shot wholeheartedly.
