Surfing The Crimson Wave: The Roses Of Fertility Awareness

If you tell your friend you use the Fertility Awareness Method, chances are you’ll get a response akin to, “…Oh. And you say you don’t want kids right now?” A lot of people don’t understand how empowering FAM can be and how it actually works. On top of all that, chance are they’re missing out on something pretty great: sex during your period, or, surfing the crimson wave.

Lots of people love surfing this wave, but FAMers particularly appreciate it because it’s one of the weeks when we’re less likely to get pregnant. Now, in general, it’s possible, although rare, to get pregnant on your period, but as we take our temperature and keep track of our cervical fluid, we can know when we’ve ovulating. After you ovulate you have between 12 and 14 days until your period. If you notice your temperature hasn’t dropped after your “peak” day, don’t have sex without wrapping it up. Otherwise, indulge!

The benefits of surfing that crimson wave are plentiful. Will you feel like having sex on your period? Sometimes that general get-out-of-my-face feeling the crimson wave brings on may make you think you’d never feel like you’d never want to have period sex. However, hormones during your period may actually INCREASE your libido. Girl, it’s time to get your groove on!

Lots of us ladies experience emotional swings around our period, and, of course, lots of women get crampy, but sex on your period can ironically help with that. Sex, like lots of exercise, can lessen the pain of menstrual cramps. All that good blood flow during sex has the ability to help with headaches and lessen your cramps. And, of course, Lord knows the magical powers of sex to help with tension and stress!

    My dear

    It’s Easter again! With the most pure soul in the world, I need to tell you that I love you more each time, because this love has the capability of renewing each day stronger and stronger… The love I feel for you is sacred, it’s the most pure and true love, in the world. Maybe there wasn’t even a necessity for me to say all this at the moment, but real love deserves to be cheered always, and especially in a festive occasion like this one, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, that loved with the most purity in this world.

    My love for you have special powers, it’s strong and constant. It’s strong like metal, but it doesn’t flicker like fire, it’s always burning, it’s happy like spring, with it’s flowers and birds. Knowing all of this, and with the cleanest soul, I believe we can permit ourselves to some little “sins” I think some chocolate here and there are not offensive, right?

    Anyway, this Easter, I want you to feel very happy because Jesus resurrected, and also because I took the liberty on a special day, to say once again, that I love you!

    kisses from your, Anass
