Is It Ok To Masterbate On Your Period ?

It’s not uncommon to be turned on during your period, and there are many reasons why that may happen.

“It’s normal to experience some level of sexual desire and pleasure even during menstruation,” says Dr. Lauren Streicher, associate clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and author of Sex Rx: Hormones, Health, and Your Best Sex Ever. “Many women report having more libido when they’re ovulating but actually have more sexual thoughts and fantasies in the week before their periods.”

So if you’re feeling horny, it might be because you’re going through a hormonal shift — not because you’ve just seen a sexy scene in a movie or on TV.

And if you have sex during your period, is it safe? Yes. If you have unprotected intercourse with someone who has an STD or HIV, the virus can enter your bloodstream through the vagina or cervix, Streicher explains. But if you’re using protection (condoms), there’s no risk of infection as long as the condom is used properly every time you have sex.
