My boyfriend and I have been for the most part happy for about 4 year. We do have one major issue and that is he is extremely squeamish about the topic of menstruation and incredibly uncomfortable doing anything too intimate while there is a chance of even the smallest spot of blood. We don't live together and often only spend nights on the weekends. Sometimes this results in over 2 weeks without intimacy. I have no desire on heavy days to be intimately touched by anything, but the days of light spotting after over a week of nothing drives me crazy. It has gotten to the point where when I know my period is coming I start freaking out about how he is not going to want me and how he hates my period (neither of which I know are entirely true). He tries to tell me he loves me and will act really sweet, but all i can think about is how until I have had at least a couple days spot free no mater what I do he wont be intimate with me. Any advice at all on how to handle this. On the internet all I can find are tons of articles about guys trying to get their girlfriends more comfortable with it and nothing to address the roles in reverse.
