Most people ask questions if having intimacy before, during, or right after their period is okay. People can continue to have intercourse while menstruating, but many of the considerations about infection and pregnancy remain similar.
According to “VeryWellHealth”, having intimacy while on your period can lead to physiological changes that have many benefits. They include:
1. Cramp Relief
Cramping while on your period happens due to the contraction of the womb to shed its lining.
Many women find that achieving intercourse climax may relieve menstrual cramps as intimacy climax cause the uterine muscles to contract and then release. This can make easy the constant state of muscle tension during the period.
More so, intercourse triggers feel-good endorphins, which can help get your mind off any pain and discomfort.
2. A Shorter Period
Muscle contractions that occur when you reach an intimate climax help clear the contents of your womb.
In theory, this means you could have shorter periods if you’re having period intimacy. However, no scientific proof exists to back up this claim.
3. Headache Relief
Studies have discovered that intimate activity can partially or completely relieve headaches.
Experts don’t know exactly why this happens. But they speculate the rush of endorphins during intercourse helps to benumb headache pain.
If the female organ tends to be on the dry side, menstrual flow can serve as a natural lubricant. This can make intimacy more comfortable and lower the need to buy lubrication products.
Try having intimacy during your periods to get these benefits.
