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?

  • I've done it in the shower and w/a towel. Personally, I think the towel thing is really disgusting, but in the shower it's quite clean. Honestly, it really helps to relieve my period cramps (also worked to relieve contractions when I was in labor).

  • EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWW!!! No! I dont want to deal with my period when i have to change my pad. I really don't want anybody touching me and the last thing I want to do is to have somebody splashing around spreading it all over the place

  • Yah, my man and I have used a red towel for longer than I can remember. And its true--nothing even gets on the towel-like ever. Just when he comes out. We do it all throughout the month-weve never been too grossed out by it.

  • We will in the shower. Not too big on the towel thing, although we've been there too.

  • Your body is actually more sensitive in this time period which can cause sex to be way more enjoyable for both!!!

  • I will admit, when I was on the pill, that was when I was in the mood which about killed me because my husband was like NO WAY! I guess it's in the Bible not to though I can't remember where specifically.

    Now, I'm not quite as into that and haven't been since I went off of the pill. I'm in the mood during the normal time of the month for me (when I'm most fertile obviously) but for some women that could be during their period.

    The times we have though, hubby won't look and I just make sure to clean him off when we're all done. It's NEVER during my HEAVIEST days though as those are the days I want to die anyway. lol

  • It's actully probably good for cramps(if u orgasim). Personally though I like having that week off from sex. Not into the mess.
