The urge to have sex come on strongly for most ladies mid-way into the monthly cycle and a lot have wondered why this happens while this may not far from the raging hormones around this time, research has shown a lot of possible factors even though biologically, this makes no sense (studies reveal it's in the ladies' mind but a lot have argued this!).

Pelvic congestion is one major thing that happens during a woman's period, making her experience heaviness which could cause arousal hence the horniness she feels mid-cycle.

What happens is your pelvic region retains water before your period giving you a watery/bloated feeling that puts pressure on your G-spot which comes stimulating and when this continues into your period this can build up to be really intense hence arousal!

Although for some, the horniness happens days before their period which could be as a result of high progesterone which gets the genitals swollen and sensitive.

Another is yet hormones though scientifically this again don't make sense but a lot of women have recorded horniness due to changes around the time of the month and the only explanation has to be hormonal changes.
