  • If you are already having unprotected sex then I dont see why that would be any different.

  • Odds of conceiving while on your period are much lower but it's not unheard of.

  • Period sex,hmmm! A woman ovulates 14 days before her period. That is midway between cycles. If u want to pregnant,u should do it then. If u don't then do it during your period. U see when we get our periods,it is the shedding of unfertilized eggs.

  • It's perfectly fine to have unprotected sex while you're on your period. It's not going to be any messier than it would be protected. And if you're both actively ttc, then I'm sure you've been together long enough to know that you're both monogamous and disease free. Penises wash off. And his won't fall off if it gets a little messy while having sex.

  • I was always HAVING my period.I have never been ON my period. You are ON a chair when you sit down. You are ON vacation,. but you are not ON your period. You are HAVING it, like you HAVE a cold.You are never ON a cold.
    OMG...doesn't anyone ever think about what they are saying? Or didn't you takeENGLISH GRAMMAR in school?
    ALSO----it should be "MY fiancee and I..." not "Me and my fiancee ....." OMG.

  • Holy cow anon, lighten up. I don't think HAVING a period is a reason to pick apart someone's grammar. Some people say that they're ON their period, it's just the way they say it, it's not a matter of grammar or smarts, and honestly, does it really effing matter? Are you HAVING your period right now?? Is that why you've decided to pick at someone for stupid reasons? And why not have the balls to say this without being anon?

  • oh, anon please! there may be a lot of spelling and grammatical errors that bug me too, but I think you are overdoing it.
