5 Date Night Ideas For When You Have Your Period

date-nightThe idea of meeting up with that special someone can seem a little daunting when you have your period, but your menstrual cycle should never get in the way of your relationship. Even if the river runs red there is no reason why you can’t hang out, have fun and make some lasting memories together.

So if you want to have a great time, regardless of what’s going on downstairs, here are five date night ideas for when you’ve got your period;

Ask your partner to give you a back massage.
In addition to pain in the lower abdomen, a lot of women suffer with back pain during menstruation which can be more than uncomfortable. As well as taking over-the-counter pain medication, a deep and thorough massage could do wanders to relieve menstrual back ache. Why not ask your partner to give you a romantic oil massage? You could light a few candles, put on some nice music and make it a romantic moment to cherish.

Share a hot, romantic bath.
At first you may not think that getting into a tub of water with another person when you have your period is that great an idea, but hot water can really help to relieve the pain of menstrual cramps. If you wear a tampon then nothing is going to leak out (not that it really matters anyway; what’s a trickle of blood in comparison to a whole bathtub of water?) Taking a bath together is such a pleasurable, intimate experience; you can lie back, relax, wash one another, maybe enjoy a glass of wine… or you could of course make bubble beards if that’s more your thing.

Put on your dancing shoes.
Exercise has been proven to reduce the pain of menstrual cramps and greatly improve your mood! Although you may not feel like getting all dressed up when you’ve had a break out or look a little bloated, but you’ll feel much better when you do. With the right makeup and the right outfit you can hide just about anything. Going out dancing, whether it’s ball room, Zoomba or jumping around like crazy people at a rave, is sure to cheer you up. So even if you really don’t feel like it I urge you to get out of bed, call that special someone and pick something cute to wear because you deserve to have a great night!

How about fooling around in the shower?
If your desire for your partner is too strong to let something as trivial as your period get in the way, then sex in the shower may be the best option! Sure you can have sex in your bedroom if you lay down a few dark towels, but in the shower you can have plenty of soapy fun and there will be nothing to clean up afterwards.
If you’ve never had sex whilst on your period before then opting for the shower is definitely a great choice for your first time. Once you get things started you’ll realise that there was never anything to be worried about.

Pizza and a movie is always a winning option.

Sometimes there really is nothing better than throwing on a pair of sweat pants and a baggy old man shirt, ordering pizza and watching bad TV. Better yet why not whip out the Xbox and have a gaming night with your partner? You’re sure to have an awesome evening without even taking your clothes of.

Remember that happiness is the key ingredient to any lasting relationship, so as long as you’re both smiling and having fun, it really doesn’t matter what you do, period or no period.
