Having Sex While Menstruating Has Its Pros And Cons


When you are on your period, the urge of having sex might bombard your body, but is it a good idea to jump right into to the act with your man during these particular days? This seems to be the million dollar question of a lot of women around the globe. As you might already be well-aware, the first few days most females bleed a lot and thus discomfort is present.
