Once a month, most healthy, fertile woman will get a visit from “Aunt Flo” that brings bloating, cramping, irritation and stays for up to an uncomfortable seven days. Men cringe and shy away from discussing “the bleed,” but it is necessary for every man to know some important facts about this natural occurrence that can affect them as well. Pay attention, fellas, because I’m taking you back to sex education class! Read the facts below and begin to understand your woman’s body better than you ever have before!
The menstrual cycle is a 28-day cycle.
It takes a total of approximately 28 days for an egg to drop from the ovary, travel down the fallopian tube into the uterus and for the lining of the uterus to shed if the egg isn’t fertilized (the shedding of the lining is the actual bleeding part). During this process, the uterine lining begins to thicken in order to support a growing fetus if an egg is fertilized by a sperm cell. During these 28 days, the body goes through a series of changes that are noticeable if you pay attention. Just realize that the menstrual cycle isn’t just the 7 days you don’t have access to your lady’s vajayjay.
The most fertile week is also the week she is the most “in the mood”.
Seven to 10 days before a woman actually sheds her uterine lining are the days when a woman is sexually aroused the most. This happens because these are the days when the egg is traveling down from the ovary and making its way to the uterus in hopes of being fertilized. In short, a woman’s is preparing to have a child, so her sexual desires become stronger. If you’re not looking to have any babies anytime soon, make sure you use a condom during these days to prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, sex during this time will be some of the best sex you will have because her mind and body will be prepared to receive you!
PMS is REAL.
