Q&A: Can you masturbate while you're on your period?

Yes- you can masturbate while you’re on your period. It may get a little bit messy, so you might want to have a towel on hand so you’re prepared. Some women find that having an orgasm helps relieve their cramps and other PMS-related pains!

Yes, you can. Though, as with having sex during your period, you might want to be prepared in case things get messy.

You’ve gotta love our hormones! They cause our periods and then can make us feel a little frisky (sometimes at the same time). I don’t see how masturbation could be harmful during your period. I’ve even heard that it can help ease bad cramps!
