Why do I want sex MORE during my period. Its like I think about it every waking moment. Am I the only women out there that has this problem? Is there something I can do about this? Other than the obvious?

Im thinking its due to a increase in your hormones at that time of the month. I know when I did have my period I enjoyed sex too. Sometimes I wished I could have my ovaries back to just help my lack of sex drive, hysterectomy due to Endometriosis and now in surgical menopause, even if I could borrow some hormones from someone that would be nice. LOL Anyway maybe if your comfortable you could enjoy sex if your partner doesnt mind the mess, but if it isnt possible maybe foreplay by yourself in the bathtub while taking a bath. It worked for me. Just a suggestion.

I don't think it's true that you have an increase of hormones during your period. As a matter of fact, I think the opposite is true. If anything, you would have an increase of hormones when you ovulate and not when you menstruate. Enjoying sex during your period doesn't have to be due to hormones. It can be just because sex (and especially orgasm) helps relieve menstrual cramps. Donna

I had a best friend once that I noticed wouldn't call me nor see me during her mentrual cycle, all she would do was text me saying "I'm bleeding, see you in 3 days." When I asked her why she did that she said "Because I feel like I'm in heat, and I don't wanna mess up our friendship." (i.e. She's a lesbian. LOL)
