Masturbation can’t change your menstrual cycle or make your period come earlier or later. Some women masturbate to relieve menstrual cramps and muscle tension before, during, and after their periods. 59% of women had increased libido some time during their period, while 34% said that it was at a different time, so it’s okay if you feel more sexual attraction while you are menstruating. 

It’s safe and healthy for a woman to masturbate when she has her period. Some women masturbate especially during menstruation to relieve menstrual cramps. 

Penetrating masturbation during your period is not recommended if you use a menstrual cup or tampon. It should be removed beforehand. 

Remember to maintain goodhygiene practices during maturbation to keep it safe and pleasant.
