6 Ways To Make Your Girlfriend Feel Better When She Is On Her Period

March 15, 2021

Periods are very uncomfortable, unnecessary and uncalled for, a factory error if you ask us, but we digress. Every woman who menstruates can attest to how cranky the experience makes them. All this to say, the last thing you want to do is add to your girlfriend’s annoyance. 

Here are a few easy ways to make your girlfriend feel better when she is on her period. 

1. Don’t call your girlfriend by her government name

Period or no period, why are you calling her by her government name? Babe, baby, boo or preferably ‘’your royal highness’’ is how you should address her. Calling her by her government name can trigger unpleasant memories of work and the last thing you want is your girlfriend bawling her eyes out because you pronounced her name how her boss pronounces it.

2. Buy her snacks regardless of the time

You are a snack, yes, just not the snack she needs. If she wants snacks by 3:13 a.m, you have to find them. We don’t care how you do it, just do it. 

3. Give your girlfriend belly rubs during her period

Read it again, we said belly rubs, not booty rubs. If you like touch her yansh, whatever you see, just take it like that. If your period coincides with your girlfriend’s period, we advise you to rub your bellies together, teamwork makes the dream work. 

4. If she says jump, you ask, “How high?”

You can turn it up a notch and carry weight sef.

If she says jump, better ask how high. The jumping jacks will work as a good exercise for you, anything to put your girlfriend in a good mood feels like a win-win to us. 

5. Avoid doing anything that may turn her on

Except you guys are into that kind of freaky freaky vampire type stuff, we advise you don’t turn her on. Read this article and avoid doing all the things on that list while she’s on her period. 

6. If you are a vampire, you can have sex with her

If all other plans fail, you can settle for orgasms. Consensual orgasms always bring joy, and research has proven that period sex isn’t even that bad.
