experienced by women under the influence of nitrous oxide gas, are more 

likely to appear at the monthly period than at any other time. (D.W. 

Buxton, _Anesthetics_, 1892, p. 61.) 

 

[112] Gehrung considers that in healthy young girls amorous sensations are 

normal during menstruation, and in some women persist, during this period, 

throughout life. More usually, however, as menstrual period after 

menstrual period recurs, without the natural interruption of pregnancy, 

the feeling abates, and gives place to sensations of discomfort or pain. 

He ascribes this to the vital tissues being sapped of more blood than can 

be replaced in the intervals. "The vital powers, being thus kept in 

abeyance, the amative sensations are either not developed, or destroyed. 

This, superadded by the usual moral and religious teachings, is amply 

sufficient, by degrees, to extinguish or prevent such feelings with the 

great majority. The sequestration as 'unclean,' of women during their 

catamenial period, as practiced in olden times, had the same tendency." 

(E.C. Gehrung, "The Status of Menstruation," _Transactions American 

Gynecology Society_, 1901, p. 48.) 

 

[113] It is possible there may be an element of truth in this belief. 

Diday, of Lyons, found that chronic urethorrhoea is an occasional result 

of intercourse during menstruation. Raciborski (_Traite de la 

Menstruation_, 1868, p. 12), who also paid attention to this point, while 

confirming Diday, came to the conclusion that some special conditions must 

be present on one or both sides. 

 

[114] See, e.g., Ballantyne, "Teratogenesis," _Transactions of the 

Edinburgh Obstetrical Society_, 1896, vol. xxi, pp. 324-25. 

 

[115] As quoted by Icard, _La Femme_, etc., p. 194. I have not been able 

to see Negrier's work. 

 

[116] I deal with the question of sexual anaesthesia in women in the third 

volume of these _Studies_: "The Sexual Impulse in Women."
