CAN I HAVE REALIZE LOVE DURING MY PERIODS?
Absolutely. The myth that it’s dangerous or forbidden for
women to do it during menstruation originates from
earlier times, when a woman’s menstrual blood was
accorded all sorts of powers. Some religions still forbid
sexual contact (or contact of any kind) during
menstruation, since the blood is seen as impure, among
other reasons. Scientifically, however, there is no reason not
to have sex during your period — and several good reasons
to do so!
Reason number one is that orgasms are a natural painkiller.
They cause the body to release endorphins and help to
relieve muscle tension, making them an excellent treatment
for cramps. Other typical period symptoms such as mild
depression or irritability can be helped by orgasm too, since you get a feel-good boost from the endorphins as well as a general sense of relaxation. In addition, many women crave for it when they are menstruating, due to increased feelings of fullness in the pelvic and genital areas.
You can minimize the mess of it during your period by
waiting until your heavy-flow days have passed, putting
down a small towel, or having it in the shower. The key is
to recognize that your menstrual flow is a bodily fluid like any other; there is no reason to be embarrassed or grossed out by it.
Just remember that safe intimacy is even more crucial during your
period . A woman’s risk of sexually transmitted disease and infection is higher than normal, since the cervix opens to allow blood to pass through, creating the perfect
environment for bacteria to get deep inside the pelvic cavity.
You are also more likely to pass on blood-borne diseases
like HIV and hepatitis to a partner, and the vagina’s pH is less acidic during this time, increasing the chances of a yeast or bacterial infection. Remember, too, there is still a chance you could become pregnant during your period, so this is another reason not to engage in unprotected sex!
