Is it alright to have sex during menstruation?

If you both seldom meet and unfortunately it happened that you have your period that day.Hubby has to leave again for work in two days time.Certainly you both needed it. Health wise, is it harmful to us women?

  • No it's not harmful at all. It's perfectly fine, but I'd make sure it was dark while we were doing it... because it's going to look weird when you guys are all done.

  • we did it all the time...and usually i would never even bleed that bad...for some reason i used to believe you couldnt get pregnant while on your period and thats not true...you can. So if you are trying to avoid it..use protection

  • It's perfectly fine. In fact, it can be more comfortable because of all the extra lubrication. :)

  • Personally, I don't even get remotley turned on while on my period ,nor do I want to be touched, the thought of it makes me cringe. It's gross and you can smell the blood. Really sexy. I'd just wait a few more days personally. No one ever died from lack of sex. But it doesn't hurt you or anything. Have fun cleaning up the crime scene!lol

  • It's fine to have sex on your period. If your DH doesn't care then go for it! Maybe put a towel down or something...lol

  • If he doesn't mind, go for it. Just lay down a towel, that's we do. And yes, it does provide plenty of lubrication.
