What you didn’t know about having sex when you are on your period


‘Period sex’—just hearing the term might make you grimace. But hear us out.

Many people avoid period sex because they perceive it as unhygienic.

And, to be fair, it can be. The discomfort of menstrual cramps radiating through your lower back and thighs can be off-putting.

Yet, surprisingly, period sex can actually be enjoyable, sometimes even more so than usual.

On the recent episode of ‘Moans and Cuddles’ on GhanaWeb TV, host Patricia Rockson Hammond welcomed family and sex therapist Princessa Aggrey to explore how period sex can be a pleasurable experience, complete with some unexpected benefits.

How to get enjoyable sex during your period

1. “I will recommend you have sex in the shower. If you’re scared of seeing blood, the water helps wash away the blood,” Princessa says.

In addition to the soothing feeling of water on your skin, bathing also plays a crucial role in maintaining hygiene. It can help alleviate menstrual cramps.

2. “If you really want to enjoy period sex, don’t have it on the first and second days. It should be on the third and fourth days. That’s when you’ll enjoy it. Because when you bathe, the period won’t come down immediately.”


Reduces cramps

The most annoying part of the period is the cramps associated with it. What if you learned that period sex can reduce cramps?

“It would reduce the cramps that you have and would also give you free lubrication,” Princessa adds.

Helps with conception

Yes, sex during a lady’s period can help her conceive. However, this depends on whether the woman is the type that ovulates during her period.

“I’ve had cases where the couple didn’t have a child for some years, but when they tried period sex, the woman conceived, and when they tracked it, they found out that they had sex during the third and fourth days of seeing her period, and that was when the woman conceived,” Princessa explains.

In all, period sex may be icky, but you and your partner can work together to turn it into a wondrous experience.
