When women are ovulating, couples particularly the young ones tend to lay low to avoid getting pregnant. But they keep the fun by using a type of birth control that works for them. And with women having cycles, it is best to schedule sex. The question is when can you have sex best?
- Nicole Prause, Ph.D., sexual psychophysiologist said that there’s no difference in sex being better or worse if you are on hormonal birth control. But if you’re not, you will probably feel the horniest a week after your period ends or when you are ovulating.
- Internist Alexandra Sowa, M.D. says that it is biological, that your sex drive actually responds to your fertility. She says, “Many women will find they have an increased sex drive during this fertile window—it’s your body’s way of saying ‘have sex and make babies.”
- It is also when women are ovulating that they have the best chance of reaching an orgasm according to Ob-gyn Draion M. Burch, D.O. He says, “The more you are in tune with your body and its needs, the more likely an orgasm will occur.”
Then again, what about period sex? Women actually enjoy sex during their period just as much as when they are not on their period according to studies. In addition, it eases cramps and carries other health benefits. Basically, sex is good any time you’re in the mood for it but now you know when it’s insanely good to have it.
