Our cycles affect everything from mood swings to emotional needs and can even affect who we’re attracted to so you can bet your a$$ you’re probably going to feel those fluctuations in your libido and that’s NORMAL!
Let’s break down how your cycle impacts your libido:
It is normal for your sex drive to be low during this time! If you’re in the mood, an orgasm may help reduce physical pain such as cramps and headaches. If you want to play but need some help: lots of TLC, foreplay, and getting in the mood with your favorite toy can increase arousal.
Energy and mood get a major boost here, making us feel stronger and confident, and we get a surge in testosterone that increases libido. This is a good time to try something new, get out of your comfort zone, and explore your kinks! Reminder to make sure you’re taking the necessary steps that align with your goal of TTA or TTC through ovulation.
Fertility is high, and you’re going to FEEL IT. You’re likely to feel more connected to your partner as well. S*x is going to be on the brain.
In the first half of this phase, you’re still probably reeling from ovulation, so that’s a solid 2+ weeks of boosted libido, but with all that yummy progesterone you got from ovulating it is normal for your sex drive to dip about halfway through your luteal phase.
If your hormones are out of whack, you may not feel these natural fluctuations, so this is worth paying attention to!
