I have a pretty high sex drive and I was super excited to at last find a partner who was happy with period sex. But after a few cycles I've noticed I lose most to all sensation during intercourse if I'm on my period (it never really occurred to me before that I rarely masturbate when bleeding). In general I just feel numbed to most feelings (there's been a few weird "oh, is it in?" moments which aren't normal and clit stimulation feels lessened too) and to an extent far more than I'd expect from the added lubrication. Sometimes this seems to persist a day or two after my flow.
So, does this happen to anyone else? Has anyone found a way to get around it?
