Does pre-menstrual tension affect sexuality?
Yes, it does. Some women tend to become irritable in the pre-menstrual periods and may have other symptoms such as nausea, backache and breast fullness and tenderness. There is a feeling of discomfort in the pelvic region, and at times, there may be emotional disturbances and varying degrees of depression. In some women, it is found that the sex drive is enhanced, perhaps resulting from increased pelvic congestion, insufficient to cause discomfort but sufficient to cause intense pelvic ‘awareness’ and reduced fear of pregnancy.
