Do Orgasms Help Cramps?

Is it that time of the month, and you find yourself asking can orgasms help me with cramps? While the idea of having orgasms to aid cramps might seem a tad unconventional, there's a growing amount of evidence that orgasms can provide much-needed relief from period cramps and other menstrual cycle-related discomforts. In this article, we'll delve into if orgasms really give period relief and explore the benefits that sex and orgasms can offer during painful periods.

Understanding Menstrual Cramps 

Before delving into the relationship between orgasms and cramps, it's essential to understand what causes menstrual cramps in the first place. Menstrual cramps, also known as dysmenorrhea, occur when the uterus contracts to shed its lining during menstruation. These contractions can cause pain and discomfort, ranging from mild to severe, and can come along with other symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, and mood changes.

Libido Levels

Although some period symptoms do not seem so sexy, you may feel the urge to have sexy time even more while on your period! During menstruation, it's not uncommon for libido to rise. This uptick in libido is because of hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle. Specifically, rising levels of estrogen and testosterone in the days leading up to and during menstruation can naturally enhance your overall arousal and sexual desire.

The Role of Orgasms in Pain Relief 

Orgasms can help alleviate menstrual cramps by triggering the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving hormones. Endorphins act as the body's natural painkillers, offering feelings of pleasure and reducing sensations of pain. Experiencing an orgasm during your period can free you from the painful cramps, and allow you to feel more at ease both mentally and physically.

Scientific Evidence

While there is limited scientific research specifically looking at the relationship between orgasms and menstrual cramps, several studies have explored the broader topic of sexual activity and pain relief. One published study found that women who engaged in sexual activity reported higher pain thresholds and tolerance levels compared to those who abstained. Research has also shown that orgasms can stimulate the release of oxytocin, the hormone that promotes relaxation and feelings of well-being.

Achieving Orgasm

To get the benefits of orgasms in alleviating menstrual cramps, mastering the art of achieving orgasm is a no brainer. Here are some things to keep in mind on how to O during menstruation.

Solo Exploration

Masturbation can be an effective way to discover what feels pleasurable to help with achieving orgasm. Take time to explore your body and experiment with different techniques, pressures, and rhythms that stimulate your clitoris or G-spot. 

Clitoral Stimulation 

The clitoris is often referred to as the "epicenter" of female pleasure, and for good reason. Wondering how to find your clit? Whether through manual stimulation, oral sex, or the use of clitoral vibrators, focusing on the clitoris can lead to intense and satisfying orgasms, potentially providing relief from menstrual cramps through the release of endorphins.

G-Spot Exploration

The G-spot is located on the front wall of the vagina, and when stimulated offers orgasmic sensations. Find out the difference between clitoral orgasms vs. vaginal. Experiment with different angles, pressures, and movements to stimulate the G-spot during solo or partnered sex. Internal vibrators or curved toys designed for G-spot stimulation can give powerful orgasms and alleviate menstrual cramps by promoting relaxation and pleasure.

Breathing and Relaxation

Creating a relaxed and comfortable environment is essential for achieving orgasm, especially during menstruation when the body may be experiencing heightened sensitivity or discomfort. Practice deep breathing and relaxation techniques to calm the mind and body, allowing yourself to surrender to pleasure and arousal fully. Focusing on your breath can also help distract from any discomfort associated with menstrual cramps, making it easier to reach orgasm.

Quick Tips for O’s: Period Relief 

  • Sensitive Spot Stimulation: Whether engaging in solo or partnered sex during menstruation, focusing on stimulation of the clitoris or G-spot can enhance pleasure and increase the likelihood of achieving orgasm. 
  • Effective Communication: Communication with sexual partners is paramount, especially when exploring sexual activity during menstruation. Prioritize open and honest discussions to ensure mutual comfort and understanding of each other's sex preferences.
  • Experimentation: Embrace experimentation and try out different sexual activities, positions, and techniques to discover what works best for relieving menstrual discomfort and enhancing pleasure. 
  • Lubrication: Using lubricants can significantly enhance comfort and pleasure during sexual activity. During menstruation vaginal dryness may be more prevalent, so opt for high quality oil-based lubricant or water-based lubricant to maintain slipperiness and reduce friction, ensuring a smoother ride to orgasm.
  • Introducing Sex Toys: Incorporating sex toys can amplify pleasure and amplify orgasms. Consider using clitoral vibrators for targeted clitoral stimulation or internal vibrators for G-spot stimulation. Both can enhance orgasms and help to alleviate menstrual cramps.
  • Clean Up: Periods can get messy, but we’re here to make hygiene easy. Use a natural pH-balanced intimate cleanser to shower off any excess blood or fluids. Use high-quality intimate wipes that will cleanse without irritation, and keep your sex toys clean with their appropriate cleaning method.

Ease your Cramps with O's

While the idea of orgasms helping with cramps may initially seem surprising, there is evidence to suggest that sexual activity could provide relief from menstrual discomfort. By understanding the potential benefits of orgasms and exploring other management strategies, you can take proactive steps to alleviate period cramps experience. At Woo More Play, we encourage you to explore your body and let those O’s take period pain out for good. Remember, it's essential to prioritize your pleasure, even when it's that time of the month!
