Do women get horny during periods?

Responses

  • Michael Castleman says:

    Yes and no. Yes, women’s libido is influenced by the menstrual cycle. No, women do not experience libido surges during periods. Halfway between them, around ovulation.

    Periods flush the uterine lining. Two weeks later, fertile women release eggs, ovulate. They can get pregnant for a few days after that. Linking ovulation and libido demonstrates evolution in action. Traits that help preserve the species often become incorporated into our genetic make-up. Greater libido around ovulation encourages reproduction, fulfilling our evolutionary mission.

    While most women notice horniness midway between periods, many don’t, some because that’s who they are, others because they take birth control pills. The Pill eliminates mid-cycle libido surges.
