Gee, how anthropocentric of you! I have not yet heard that Dragaerans  
menstruate, much less pause.  I could hypothesize a voluntary estrus,  
induced by sorcery (at least since the interregnum ended), for the  
sole purpose of conception in contrast to purely recreational sex  
which could take place anywhen.
