Your sex drive is a funny old thing- the slightest thing can make a total difference to how horny you feel and the biggest factor in this is your hormone levels. By understanding your own cycle you can learn to make the most of your sexiest moments.
Hormone levels are constantly changing throughout a woman's monthly cycle and so is our sex drive so Female First look at the high and lows of 28 days of sex.
Day 1 to 7 is when your period starts and this is possibly the lowest point in your sexual month.
Oestrogen levels are low as your period approaches which means you will have less natural lubrication in the run up to the start of your period and it might take a little bit more effort to get you in the mood.
It might be a good idea to keep a bottle of lubricant stashed away for weeks like this.
Day 8 to 14 is usually when you are feeling your most horny. This is when your body will get ready to release another egg so it is also your most fertile- so be careful!
Those super sexy oestrogen levels are starting to rise at this point as your body gets ready for some baby making.
This is not only when you will experience the best orgasms and the highest sex drive but you will also attract the attention of more men.
Research has shown that men are drawn to ovulating women- which is strange considering the thought of actually producing a baby makes most men run for the hills.
Day 15 to 21 will see oestrogen levels start to drop. Ovulation usually occurs at around Day 14 meaning high sex drive will only continue for a few days after this so make the most of it
Day 21 to 28 progesterone levels will have taken over by this week. We might not notice but this can make our voices can become deeper and more husky-sexy!
However towards the end of this final week another period is on its way and most women will start to feel bloated, moody and far from sexy. But don't worry- the whole cycle starts again in a few days.
