Q. I'm 18 and I have a high sex drive. I don't even know if it's a problem! I get thoughts about having sex or sexual activities at odd times, especially during my period. It's gotten to a point where all I have to do it look at a guy and think about how it'd be with him or something. Do you know how to stop that or at least know what this high sex drive is exactly?! I really would like to know! Thank you!
A. What you are experiencing is a completely normal sex drive. Thinking about it more while you're on your period is also completely normal. It's just a case of your hormones working properly. It only becomes a problem if you act on your feelings when you don't want to or in ways that you regret.
