Not dangerous : hot sex may cause pelvic congestion which may set off bad menstrual symptom s. Or this is coincidence. Lots of over 40s have strong ovulation and hormones therefore bad symptoms. Next month try no sex. U still may have the same problems. Only easy cure is to get pregnant or take low dose birth control pills
