As Sheena ticked off items on her sex-kitty list, she found herself transported to Goa where she would be spending a romantic weekend with her boyfriend. She had her mind made up to remain glued to the bed and do dirty stuff all day and night long. Just then, she realized that her periods were late by 45 days. She was not pregnant but her periods were often irregular and wreaked havoc over her sex life. She was immediately stressed out and lost all her enthusiasm for the holiday.
Have you ever faced a similar situation? How do you figure it out?
No woman likes those bloody days of the month. They dampen her routine lifestyle and of course, put her sexual romps on a hold. When your menstruation cycle functions like a clockwork and arrives dot on time, you can still manage to plan your sexual life to the T.

They spoil all your plans for a romantic getaway or sexual escapade with your partner like it happened with Sheena. Not to mention, uncertainty creates unnecessary anxiety for you and your partner. To have sex or not is the question that bugs your mind constantly. If you decide to stay away from sex, you both will physically be frustrated which further extends to emotional strain in your relationship. If you continue to do it, you are constantly worried about unwanted pregnancy or random occurrence of periods.

You can indulge in intense foreplay, or even hotter stuff like oral fun or anal sex. Wear a tampon or a menstrual cup and you are all set to enjoy heavy orgasms. You can even use anal sex toys to climax the rear end way. While you would require refraining from enjoying oral sex on your body, you can make him cum by giving him hardcore blowjobs. See, we told ya! Irregular periods are not a deterrent to sex.
It is important that you pay attention to your irregular periods rather than let them worry you all the time. Typically, the causes of irregular periods are:

- Use of contraceptives such intrauterine device (IUD) may cause heavy bleeding. Birth control pills can also cause occasional spotting between periods.
- Change in the body weight – extreme weight loss or weight gain.
- Emotional stress due to work or personal reasons.
- Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.
- Medical illnesses or diseases such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disorder, cervical or uterine cancer, etc. Some of these diseases may lead to obesity which further results in hormonal fluctuations and thereby irregular periods.
Usually, the menstrual cycle ranges between 24 and 35 days, with 28 days being the ideal average. You should see a doctor if your irregular periods persist for more than 2-3 months. They may be able to detect the underlying cause and recommend ways to bring it on track. If required, you may be put on medication. However, it will certainly give you a clear insight into exactly why your cycles are not regular.
Unless there are serious medical complications involved, the best way to get periods on time is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, do regular exercise and eat a well-balanced diet. As far as sex during the flow time is concerned, we have already given you some ‘fuckstatic’ way to do it.
