connection between menstruation and sexual feeling been observed; 

in the other two-thirds, sexual feeling was increased, either 

before, after, or during the flow, or at all of these times; the 

proportion of cases in which sexual feeling was increased before 

the flow, to those in which it was increased after, was as three 

to two. (H. Campbell, _Nervous Organization of Men and Women_, p. 

203.) 

 

Even this elementary fact of the sexual life has, however, been 

denied, and, strange to say, by two women doctors. Dr. Mary 

Putnam Jacobi, of New York, who furnished valuable contributions 

to the physiology of menstruation, wrote some years ago, in a 

paper on "The Theory of Menstruation," in reference to the 

question of the connection between oestrus and menstruation: 

"Neither can any such rhythmical alternation of sexual instinct 

be demonstrated in women as would lead to the inference that the 

menstrual crisis was an expression of this," i.e., of oestrus. 

Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, again, in her book on _The Human Element 

in Sex_, asserts that the menstrual flow itself affords complete 

relief for the sexual feelings in women (like sexual emissions 

during sleep in men), and thus practically denies the prevalence 

of sexual desire in the immediately post-menstrual period, when, 

on such a theory, sexual feeling should be at its minimum. It is 

fair to add that Dr. Blackwell's opinion is merely the survival 

of a view which was widely held a century ago, when various 

writers (Bordeu, Roussel, Duffieux, J. Arnould, etc.), as Icard 

has pointed out, regarded menstruation as a device of Providence 

for safeguarding the virginity of women.
