How To Use A Yoni Egg During Your Period
If you’re new to the Yoni egg practice you might wonder how to use a yoni egg during your period. What I found out long ago is that my body answered this question for me.
Using a yoni egg connects you
to the wisdom of your body.
Many women suffer from pain, lack of energy and cramping during their period. They don’t look forward to their monthly cycle. How is it for you? Do you dread your period? What type of relationship do you have with this rhythmic feminine cycle that is happening in your body?
When I first started using my egg I was a cycling woman. I loved my period. It was a sacred process in my body that I honored. When I stopped cycling I experienced a sense of grief, having to let go of this magical cleansing process that my body went through each month. You may or may not feel that way. But honoring your cycle is an important way to get connected to the wisdom of your body. And using an egg will help you to do so.
Many women wonder if they should use a yoni egg while they are on their period.
Your body will let you know.
The question of how to use a yoni egg during your period was very clearly answered a few days before my period. My body simply didn’t want to have my yoni egg inside me during that time. So the answer of how to use a yoni egg during your period is… don’t. I mean you can do whatever you want. If for some reason you feel compelled to wear or practice with your egg during your period then do so. Especially if your body is telling you so. Which I imagine she’s not.
In order to know how to use your yoni egg during your period, listen to your body. What’s your body telling you? What’s “she” showing you? How’s “she” reacting to your yoni egg? Are you sensing her and her needs?
If this previous paragraph sounds weird to you then you need to get real about your relationship with your feminine side and your relationship with pleasure. Pleasure is where your power is. How much do you love your body and allow sensual pleasure?
Tuning into the wisdom of your female anatomy is more empowering than trying to keep up with the impossible beauty standards put on women today. Let go of that “Pretty Pressure” and cultivate a deeper connection to your body and Yoni instead.
What I found was, shortly before my period, my body simply didn’t want my egg inside me. It was super magical. My body let me know and would not hold the egg in. I simply listened to and honored my body’s message. I suggest you do the same. If your body releases the egg then don’t “shove” it back in. And that goes for any time, not just during your period.
During Your Period there is a Release
When you’re on your period there is a downward motion, a release that is happening. Your body is wanting to let go and sluff off the uterine lining that has built up in its last cycle. Allow this process to happen. Enhance this process by tuning into the release and this letting go process.
Take time for yourself. Slow down. Allow this magical time of your cycle to be a time of rest and relaxation. Give yourself and your body permission to just be. This will also help you tap into the powerful wisdom your female body and menstrual cycle hold.
Your body is wiser than you can ever imagine. Your yoni egg is a tool to get you more connected to that wisdom.
Now, I’d love to hear from you. In the comments below, let me know.
