Chocolate and menstruation

Valentine’s Day is coming up, that rather chocolatey, relatively expensive moment when flesh, love and passion inevitably meet under the sheets!

What happens when menstruation shows up? Do you + me + my menses = an equation that makes a happy marriage? We’ll find out together!

Look out! You don’t like blood? You can hardly watch a Kill Bill scene to the end without fading? Then this article is not for you. Although hyper interesting, educational and relevant, it deals with blood-sensitive topics that may offend.

Having sex during menstruation : Is it yes or no?

The answer isn’t black on red. It depends on several factors that are personal to each individual such as :

  • The intimacy you have with your partner;
  • The strength of your flow;
  • Your partner’s openness to being in contact with your period;
  • The feeling of pleasure is sometimes diminished by the generous lubrication of menstrual fluids.
  • The menstruating person’s level of comfort and pleasure may be disturbed by the smell or feeling of being dirty;
  • The discomfort of premenstrual symptoms experienced: bloating, nausea, fatigue, etc.
  • For others it is the inconvenience of the mess that a part of the leg in the juicy area represents that stops their sexual ardour: stained sheets, etc..

In all cases, the tip is to respect yourself and your partner’s discomforts.

Sex during menstruation: a health risk?

Getting pregnant during menstruation, can it be?

Yes! Even though the odds are slim, they are still there.

Why? Because sometimes some of the more stubborn sperm can hide in the cavities and survive until ovulation!

This normally takes place on 14th day of the cycle (about a week after menstruation), but for a person with a shorter or irregular cycle, the chances of procreation are increasing!

So yes, unprotected sex during menstruation can result in pregnancy!

Again, consider the condom as your best friend!

4 Tips if you want to embark on the adventure

1) Talk about it with your partner in an open, honest, non-partisan way.No judgment no pressure.

Respecting your limits and those of your bedroom teammate is essential to having a positive and fulfilling sexuality!

2) Get your playground ready! Consume your love in a good place. For example, camping, without access to water, in a wet sleeping bag full of pine needles is NOT a good place.

Prefer the bed instead, spread out a few towels to avoid re-dyeing your bedding (preferably dark-coloured). Wet washcloths may also be appropriate.

That said, showering and bathing are also interesting options as the blood stops flowing!

3) Obviously, remove the intruder (tampon or menstrual cup), if necessary. Throwing your partner on a treasure hunt inside your vagina during a sweaty, nocturnal adventure is a love-killer. Believe me.

4) Use your imagination! Is vaginal penetration the only option? You can masturbate together, experience anal sex or try rubbing while keeping your clothes on!
