Q & A: During her menstrual flow, she is not interested in doing anything sexual

Q. I have a satisfying sex life with my partner. But, during her menstrual flow, she is not interested in doing anything sexual at all. I certainly share her disinterest in intercourse during that period of time! But is it normal and usual for women to be adverse to any form of sex at that point, or is it just a peculiarity of hers?

Dear Curious,

Often women who are very focused on obtaining orgasm, do not have an inclination for sexual activity when intercourse is not possible. If both you and your wife are not interested in intercourse during menstruation, she may feel as though she doesn't want to get "turned-on" only to be left unfulfilled. It is important to relationships to learn to enjoy touching, kissing and other sensual activities with your partner without the need for either person to reach orgasm or without the pressure of feeling as though you must help your partner obtain orgasm each time. Talk with your wife about touching strictly for the pleasure of the shared intimacy.
