Hi Anon

Thanks for your question.

You may feel like having sex more due to a hormonal shift.

It's perfectly ok to have sex when you are on your period as long as you and your partner are ok with it and you don't have any infectious diseases that could be transferred.

Many people find that the more they have sex, the more they want it. So even if you don't feel like it so much, give it a shot and you may find that your sex drive increases. Kind of a "use it or lose it" technique.

Good luck!
