    I've heard a theory that orgasms can shorten the length of a period. The logic of it is that the contractions of the uterus during an orgasm increase the blood flow creating a heavier, but shorter period.
    Any females ever experience this?
    Do you think it's plausible?

    studies have shown when a woman has an orgasm right before her period, she has less cramping

    :rofl: Doubtful. I have orgasms a lot...luckily and possibly more than a lot of women. My period is still always 4 days long.

    this would make sense, as exercise is supposed to reduce cramping as well.

    orgasms seriously help with cramps :) but they don't make my period shorter.

    Hmm, I havent noticed. Ever since I started Yaz, my periods are only 3 days anyway. And its damn near impossible most of the time for me to actually orgasm while having my period. Not 100% impossible, but definitely not as easy as when I'm not on it.

    I am so pissed... having BC problems with what I was switched to January. Tried to talk to the retarded nurse-practitioner at Planned Parenthood about Yaz and some of the newer BC's and she told me my only options were stick with what I'm on or go back to the generic of what I was on before. This just made me think of it all. :sad2:
