Sometimes, she just doesn’t want to have sex

As a guy, you know it’s coming. Every month, her period sets your relationship on a plank – teetering that way and teetering the other – putting up with random fits of anger, sensitive emotions, and even a reduced libido.

While you may just want to blame your girl’s lack of need to be touched on her extreme mood swings, researchers have found that a woman’s reduced sexual libido during the days leading up to her monthly period, is the result of reduced sexual satisfaction when experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

In a 2010 study, researchers found that PMS is a risk factor for sexual dissatisfaction in women.

PMS is basically a set of specific physical and psychological features that occurs in the last half of a woman’s menstrual cycle. Women may experience breast tenderness, bloating, anger and depression during this time.

No wonder most women just want to be left alone sometimes.
