Even during period, the estrogen and testosterone levels keep ramping up, and the urge can be higher. Here is how to still have fun.
It’s also true that lady may want sex during period because estrogen and testosterone level increase when the flow is in full effect, which can make you horny. "Lots of women find the increased blood flow and extra slickness make sex even more enjoyable," says Carol Queen, PhD, staff sexologist for Good Vibrations.
Because of this delicate situations, should you choose to have sex during this period, here are 4 positions that are optimal as compiled by Women’s Health Magazine.
1. The Butterfly
Let her lay her back at the edge of the bed, while you stand infront of her, then place her legs over your shoulder, help her adjust her waist until the hips is accessible for penetration. You can stack pillows underneath her to make this better. You can also pull this off in missionary—with your guy kneeling—so there's not as much leakage, says Ian Kerner, PhD, author of She Comes First.
One of the most romantic positions for sex is also fantastic for period sex. This tried-and-true favorite allows you to control the angle of penetration and gives him easy access to caress your breasts, which are probably sore, says Jane Greer, PhD, sex therapist and author of What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship. Bonus: Not only is gravity still on your side, but the shallow penetration that comes with this move is great if your cramps are really acting up, says Queen.

3. Modified Missionary
The world’s laziest sex position is also good for period sex, but with some modifications as well. You may prefer to keep it simple when Aunt Flo's in town and partake in some straight-up missionary sex. (Sometimes lazy sex = best sex.) Plus, lying down could minimize cramping, says Greer. Just make sure to place a towel underneath your butt to minimize cleanup. For a tighter feel, try missionary with your legs held together, says Queen. "It adds some pressure and helps reduce slippage."
