Have you Tried Tracking your Sexual Activity?
By on 06 September 2017
Vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, oral sex, masturbation; and the list of human sexual experiences goes on. Some do it for pleasure, some do it out of boredom and some do it because they want to procreate. Whatever your reason for indulging in sexual activity is, it says more about your body than you might know. By keeping track of your sexual activity, combined with your cycle you’ll be able to understand more about your body and sexual health than before.
Why should you track your sexual activity?
- If you’re trying to get pregnant
Keeping track of when you had your last period can help you identify your fertile days and when you should do the deed. Knowing your most fertile days, increase the likelihood of creating a mini-human.
- If you use contraception
Your contraception can affect your sexual activity. For example, feeling protected from pregnancy may remove some sexual inhibition. At the same time, some people might experience a decreased sexdrive when starting hormonal contraceptive.
- If you have unprotected sex
By starting to track unprotected sex, you can be able to make decisions based on when you are the most fertile in your cycle. Also, by tracking unprotected sex, it can be easier to handle STDs if they occur.
- If you use the pull-out method
The same goes as for unprotected sex, you can be able to make decisions based on when you are the most fertile in your cycle and maybe use additional contraception if you do not want to get pregnant.
- Understanding your cycle
For many women their temperature raises, and they experience increased sexdrive close to or during ovulation. Another fun fact is that you actually can track your estrogen levels in your saliva, as it peaks during ovulation. Hence your whole body prepares you for the intake of sperm.
