It is no news that there are a lot of arguments concerning how healthy sex during menstruation is.

However, there is nothing wrong with it as it is completely healthy.

According to romanticupdates, having sex while you are menstruating can help ease the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS.

This is probably due to the fact that orgasms release endorphins, natural painkillers and mood enhancers, which can help soothe the cramps, headaches, mild depression, and irritability sometimes associated with periods.

Also, many women say that orgasms can ease their cramps and the orgasmic contractions of the uterus offer a soothing internal massage.

Unfortunately, there is a clause, because the cervix opens to allow blood to pass through, this creates the perfect pathway for bacteria to travel deep inside the pelvic cavity, therefore safe sex is even more crucial.

In order to really enjoy sex while menstruating, do the following.

  1. Lay a towel down underneath you so you do not stain the sheets.

  2. Have shower sex, apart from how cool it is, you do not have to worry about blood because it washes away.
