Period starts after sex
Lately my period will get off to a very very very lazy start, just light spotting for days on end, but as soon as I have a good orgasm, like when DH and I have sex, then it will finally get things flowing immediately. It makes it very difficult to pinpoint which day to consider day 1 of my cycle. It's one thing if it's just a day or two, but for example, this time it was spotting for a few days, then *nothing* for a couple more days, then finally, after finally getting a chance to be intimate after getting back from vacation with the in-laws, my period finally got going at a normal flow 7 days after I first started spotting. Do I call this day 7? Day 1? Something in between? It makes a big difference when trying to avoid pregnancy in the pre-ovulatory phase. Am I a week away from ovulation or two? It's just really odd; it's like without the uterine contractions, my period doesn't seem to like to start on its own. Yet when I google, all I find are articles saying that orgasms cannot start your period. Hogwash--I'm here to tell you it does! Does this happen to anyone else? If so, how do you account for it in NFP?
