Can you have sex when you have your period?

i personally think it's disguisting and so does my hubby he waits patiently for that week to go by but i was talking to a friend and this topic got brought up and she says they have sex all the time when she's on her period they just put a towel down and go at it. so i was wondering how many moms auctually have sex when they are bleeding?

  • Generally no. we have on a rare ocassion if it wasn't heavy. but generally I'm too uncomfortable and don't feel sexy at that time of the month.

  • Only once. DH seemed rather "into" it. I wasn't thrilled. Like I said, "Only once!"
    To each his (her) own (said the old lady as she kissed the cow)!

  • I have more with my ex, but my SO and I have a few times. We just wait until it's really light, near the end, and use a condom. He doesn't really mind if it's not getting all over him. lol!

  • Um...yes...lol.

    I just don't do it myself because it'd leave a huge mess!

  • having sex during your period is no big deal. it's not gross. it helps relieve cramps. doesn't leave that big of a mess

  • Towards the end, with a towel to save the bedding... sure
    It really not that messy, bc your body kind of stops bleeding a little when your natural lube kicks in.

    Man... this is one of those questions where it would be nice for everyone to get to be anon.
    I don't really get the NASTY comments... I having sex with MY DH, nothing nasty about it.

  • OMG that is so NASTY!!!!!!!!!!!! when you are having your period is the time when your body is cleaning itself! That is not sexy or anything like that to have sex while you are on your period.  my husband would go crazy of i told him that i wanted to have sex while on my period. I think anyone who actually does this is nasty!!!!!!!!!!
