I noticed when I become aroused during my period, my natural clear vaginal lubrications come out rather than menstural blood.

Why does this happen?

Well, there isn't a shut-off valve to the cervix or uterus during arousal. Quite the opposite, really. And generally, with orgasm, flowe even often increaseas a little afterwards, because of uuterine contractions.

But menstrual flow is never completely contstant, not suring arousal or at other times: chances are you just haven't noticed that outside sexual situations because you're not really monitoring your secretions that intently at other times.

Papou, exactly the same thing happens to me as well. I always find it really surprising cos suddenly I'm *wet* wet instead of bleeding!
