8 Facts Every Man Should Know About Sex During A Woman's Period

There is nothing wrong with having sex while a woman is on her period, but the
re are some details about this situation you (and she) might want to know first.
1. The Basic Biology
Sex ed. told you the basics about a woman's menstrual cycle, but here's what's important to know for this situation. A period marks the end of the body's monthly attempt to get pregnant. Awaiting a fertilized egg, the uterus developed a thickened lining to keep this potential occupant happy. If an egg doesn't get fertilized, the body can't sustain this special womb, so hormone levels drop and the lining is shed. "The bleeding is because there is a blood supply that went into those tissues, and it bleeds until the tissue comes out enough and the blood vessels start to close off," says Rowen.
2. What it Feels Like
Women may already be in a considerable amount of pain during their period, so sex may seem like it would add to that. The short answer is: it shouldn't. "There's no reason why a woman would have more pain on her period [during sex] versus not being on her period," says Rowen. In other words, if she does experience pain, it's not likely from the combination of sex and her period, but pain that would have resulted from either of those two situations anyway.
3. Caution About STIs
Because there is blood involved, partners should be cautious about STIs. But they should be cautious about those anyway during sex because exchange of potentially infectious fluid, including blood, is always a possibility. "Use a condom if anyone's in any way concerned about sexually transmitted infections," says Rowen. "But mainly the blood-borne ones. Things like gonorrhea or chlamydia are not going to be more likely to be transmitted during the period." If either of you are at all worried about STIs (blood-borne or not), use protection.
4. Sex and Cramping
There is some debate over whether sex increases or decreases cramping. Rowen says the answer is unclear. "The cramping is because, as the blood is being expelled, the body is releasing its own natural chemicals that cause contractions of the uterus to help expel the blood," says Rowen. "There's no reason why sex or penetration or hitting the uterus is going to make that worse." Again, if a woman is having bad cramps, that was probably going to happen with or without sex.
5. Oral Sex
Penile sex or fingering during a woman's period doesn't carry any special risk versus sex otherwise. Oral sex is a different story. "I would caution against oral sex," says Rowen. "There's going to be an increase in bacteria and inflammation in the blood itself." If you still want to have oral sex while a woman is on her period, consider using a dental dam or other barrier
6. The Blood
Women can vary widely in how much blood comes out of them during their period, but it's generally not that much. "Women bleed a very small amount over the course of their periods," says Rowen. "It might seem like it's a lot but it's two shot glasses, basically." Believe it or not, you might not see any blood, even with penetrative sex.
7. What the Blood Should (and Shouldn't) Look Like
If you want to be a stellar partner, take note of any blood you do see because there is a difference between period blood and other bleeding that could be problematic. Period blood, because it's been in the uterus a while and includes other tissue cells, is generally dark and thick and may be clotted. "The kind of stuff that you want to be worried about — that [indicates] there could be some kind of injury to the vagina — is really bright red blood," says Rowen. Period blood doesn't generally look like the blood you'd see from a cut.
8. Women Can Get Pregnant on Their Period
Yes. You can absolutely get a woman pregnant if you have sex with her on her period. While the period is the least likely time for a woman to get pregnant (because the egg is gone), sperm could wait for the next egg to be released. Sperm can stay in a woman's body for seven days. So if a woman has a short cycle and you have sex with her near the end of it, she can become pregnant.

DO YOU SEE THESE STRANGE LINES ON YOUR NAILS? DON'T JOKE WITH IT, THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS OF YOUR HEALTH

As I’ve gotten older, those vertical ridges on my nails seem to be getting more and more prominent. That’s when I decided to do some research to see if those ridges meant anything about my health, and if there was anything I could do to get rid of them. What They Mean About Your Health After a lot of research, I did find that there is a small, rare possibility that those ridges can mean an underlying medical condition or possibly even nail trauma. But for most of us, it’s completely normal as we age to see them getting more noticeable, especially if you have dry skin or skin conditions such as eczema. I’m 36, and they’ve only recently started bothering me, but I’m relieved to find that they are most likely harmless. I’m just getting old. But Why Are They There? They’re basically like wrinkles of the nails! As we age, the nail matrix gradually starts to lose it’s effectiveness in some areas, causing your nails to grow out uneven, resulting in what we see as lines or ridges that run from

ESTIMATION AND APPROXIMATION MATHEMATICS LESSON NOTE AND PLAN FOR BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL

Monday   Understand estimation and approximation Round whole numbers to the nearest ten Resources  Inside out  mathematics Book 4, page  181 and 6 page 106 flashcards,  beads, jelly bean, glass jar,  currency note biscuits, books, pencils. Introduction to estimation and approximation Estimation is a way of saying a sum is nearly about a figure or find something close to the correct answer. If we write 99, we say that it is nearly or about 100. Another word for estimation is approximation.  this sign means “approximately equal to”. When rounding numbers, do notice the following: a. digits that are less than 5 are rounded down, I.e replaced by zero. b. digits that are 5 or greater than 5 are rounded up. i.e 1 added to the original digit. Rounding whole Numbers to the Nearest Ten  When rounding whole numbers to the nearest ten, simply round up or down the last whole number Note a. numbers like 20, 30,40,90, 100 200, 300, 800, 1000, 2000 b. numbers like 21, 22, 23, 24, are all rounded down
