Will anything happen if I masturbate while I am on my period? Because it seems i am extremely aroused while im on my period/ or about to start.
It’s safe and healthy for you to masturbate when you have your period. Some people masturbate during menstruation to relieve menstrual cramps.
If you’re using a tampon, remove it if you’re going to put a toy into your vagina to masturbate. Otherwise the tampon and its string could get pushed up too deep in your vagina for you to be able to get it out yourself.
Many people report that their level of sexual desire changes at different times in their cycles. Sometimes you’re more easily aroused than at other times. Some people experience increased desire when they’re getting their period, right after they get their period, or around the time they ovulate.
Scientists don’t really know exactly why these changes happen. We do know that levels of the hormone testosterone play a role in sexual desire in all people. But we also know that psychological and emotional factors are important.
What we do know is that masturbation is healthy and safe, no matter what time of the month you do it, so enjoy!
