In one instant, you likely feel exhausted, emotional, and drained. But within the same breath, your brain is flooded with naughty thoughts and you are surprised by the sudden influx of sexual arousal. You are not alone in these experiences because many women feel hornier during their period. Read on to learn why this happens and what you can do about it!

Is it normal to be horny on your period?

If you have not guessed already, the answer is yes! During your period, your hormones and your mood will fluctuate. Your libido and sex drive are not immune to these hormonal changes; in fact, they are extra sensitive to these shifts.

While on your period, your estrogen levels are the primary hormone that is changing. As your estrogen levels increase, your libido does the same. These sensations of arousal are prevalent right before you start your period.

Feeling more aroused during your period is not a coincidence. These urges are natures way of signalling to your body that it is ready to get pregnant!

Am I ovulating or is my period coming?

If you are not doing this already, it is strongly recommended to track your menstrual cycle using a digital health app or a paper calendar. This will be the surest way to tell if you are ovulating or if you are about to get your period.

Without this data, you are forced to depend on memory, which is unreliable! You will experience similar hormonal changes during ovulation as you would during your period. This means that you will likely experience sexual arousal during ovulation, and you will feel hornier.

While you are ovulating, you are at the highest risk of becoming pregnant. Therefore, if you are having sex during this time of the month, ensure you use proper protection to prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

Can you get pregnant just before your period?

Hormones are surging, your body is craving sex, but many women wonder if they can get pregnant just before your period starts. The answer is yes.

Notably, this is the least likely time that your body will conceive, but there is always a possibility that you will become pregnant. So, just like any other time you participate in sexual activities, use proper protection like you usually would.

How do I have sex while on my period?

Having a sexy mindset can ultimately elevate your experience of having sex during your period. But, of course, the last thing you want is to be distracted by thoughts of cleaning up a mess, so make sure you have towels and proper contraceptives during your sexy sessions.

Many women can still get wet during their period, but you may still want to use lube while having sex during your period. During your period, things are probably sore and a little more sensitive than usual: using lube will make the sexual experience so much more enjoyable.

Communication is critical for all relationships to succeed, especially relevant while you are on your period. Let your partner know your status, let them know what is on the table and which moves just do not make you feel good right now. The more open you are, the more enjoyable it will be for both parties.

Can I have an orgasm while on my period?

You absolutely can have an orgasm while on your period. Remember, a sexy mindset is the key to unlocking pleasure while on your period.

If for some reason, you can not achieve an orgasm during sex, you can always pleasure yourself solo. This is because there are so many tools and products available women can use to get off.

If you miss the intimacy of sharing these moments with a partner, ask them to use a device on you or simply invite them to watch while you work solo. The amount of erotic activity you bring into the bedroom while on your period is limited by your imagination.

Do orgasms help with period pain?

Some women will experience pain relief after having an orgasm. The release and surge of hormones relax muscular tension and eases pain related to menstrual cramps.

An orgasm will also increase your mood. You can literally feel yourself relax as stress and tension abate after an orgasm. Happy hormones flood your brain, and your skin starts to glow.

Reject the stigma that period sex is ‘gross’

Until you try it, you will never know what you are missing. There are so many opportunities to enjoy sexual pleasure during your menstrual cycle; it just takes an open mind to unlock this new area of your sexuality.

Be open and transparent with your partner about how you are feeling. A good partner will want you to feel fully satisfied regardless if you are on your period or not. Use this time to discuss sexual acts that suit both partners and enjoy exploring this new frontier of your relationship.

Stay safe

It goes without saying that contraceptive products are recommended to be used diligently to prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, people who are under the impression that you can not get pregnant while on your period will abandon these contraceptive products: this is a high-risk move that is not recommended.

Studies have shown that women who have unprotected sex during their period are more likely to contract sexually transmitted diseases or infections. Remember that condoms provide more protection than just blocking sperm: they also prevent possible infections and diseases from transmitting through fluids and direct contact.

In Summary

It is normal to feel horny during your period and to experience arousal during ovulation. However, choosing to act on these impulses is entirely up to you.
Having a sexy mindset is the greatest asset to ensuring you enjoy your sexual experiences while on your period.

Communicate, use protection, and try to enjoy yourself! Orgasms provide pain relief and will leave your brain flooded with happy hormones.
