Whenever my girlfriend is on her period, she doesn't like to

Customer Question

whenever my girlfriend is on her period, she doesn't like to do anything sexual at all. she says she feels gross and she won't even perform anything sexual on me. she doesn't want to help satisfy my needs because she just can't be turned on or in the mood to do that while she's on her period. Is this normal? or should she want to still satisfy me and want to still do sexual things while she's on her period?

I am sorry for you. I am sure this can be frustrating. The fact is though, I would say it is actually very normal. You might consider this as a time of investment, not seeking your own satisfaction, but instead being considerate to her during this time. It may not pay off in the immediate, but could pay off well for meeting your future needs.
