Brief Answer:
Please be informed about her fertile days

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

a woman's ovulation cannot be accurately predicted but it can be estimated. The fertile period is between a 5-6 days time period that precedes her ovulation and up to 24 hours after it. If she has a 26 day cycle then her ovulation should be 14 days earlier (on the 12th day). So her fertile period should be approximately between the 6th and 12th day of her cycle. I can't foretell whether she'll bleed or not because this is different in every woman.

I hope I've helped!
You can ask for clarifications if you'd like.

Brief Answer:
I can't give that kind of advice

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I can't give that kind of advice. Women need a lot of psychological stimulation before body contact sometimes but this is not a medical matter. I'll give you my personal opinion though.

It may become a medical matter if she has symptoms of depression like crying without any serious reason, being unable to feel happiness, being sad all the time etc. If this is her case then appropriate medical treatment by a psychiatrist might be needed.

Otherwise this is up to you and your relationship. You can try to stimulate her a lot before penetrating, so that her mind and vagina would be ready for it.

I hope I've helped!
Kind Regards!
