Having an orgasm releases natural painkillers including oxytocin and dopamine which will help reduce period pain.
Orgasms are good for you – incredibly good for you! If you experience lots of period pain when menstruating, then they could be the solution for some speedy relief. In fact, Megwyn White, Director of Education at Satisfyer and Certified Clinical Sexologist says:
“Regular orgasms throughout the cycle can help to support a healthy balance of hormones and a regular cycle, meaning that a good sexual wellness routine will be of benefit before, during and after your period. When we orgasm, the endorphins and hormones released, including ‘love hormone’ oxytocin, help the body to manage pain by interacting with the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce our perception of pain. These powerful chemicals work with the brain to alleviate us in the same way as pain-relief drugs, helping to ease cramps and migraines. Orgasms may also make your periods shorter as muscle contractions push out the uterine contents faster, which is a win-win.”
Masturbation has also been proven to improve sleep cycles and boost your mood. All things you need when perioding.
