Apparently, Period Sex Has Some Surprising Health Benefits

Here’s why you should still get it on during her time of the month.

As a general rule of thumb, many women avoid having sex during their period, and instead deem those few days “Blowjob Week.” You know, because she’s bloated, uncomfortable, and crampy, and it can get a little messy when Aunt Flo makes an appearance.

But according to a team of gynecologists at the University of Michigan, laying down a towel and doing the deed during her time of the month is actually a really good idea, because it has some surprising health benefits that will make her feel a lot better — if and only if you make her orgasm.

The doctors believe that having period sex might shorten the length of her period if you make her come, which is awesome news to women who wish their period would just fuck off already. 

To put things as simply and non-descriptively as possible, having an orgasm makes her uterus contract, which can help get the blood and tissue out of there in a timelier manner. One of the gynecologists, Dr. Dee Fenner, explains: “Although no studies have been done on this, it’s likely that menstrual blood in the uterus is squeezed out during orgasm.”

Plus, if your girlfriend is someone who struggles with unsavory cramps, period sex might be a particularly good idea, because orgasms trigger a huge rush of feel-good hormones including oxytocin, dopamine, and a handful of other endorphins, which actually work together to relieve her of those awful cramps. 

And as a little bonus, when your lovely lady is riding the crimson wave, you won’t need any additional lube or anything, because Mother Nature is already blessing her with a little extra for a few days, so you might as well take advantage of it. 

To conclude, I feel the need to briefly debunk a myth about period sex that an unfortunate number of people are confused about, even though I’m sure you know the truth: Women can definitely get pregnant from unprotected period sex, especially if she has a short menstrual cycle. It’s a super small chance, but it can totally happen. Just FYI.
