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?

  • Personally I am not bothered by it and neither is my husband. I am not willing to give up 25% of our sex life because of some blood, that easily cleans up when the deed is done.

  • I have sex on my lighter days during my period we keep a towel by the bed and he washes off when we are done. I don't see the big deal

  • I'm always super horny during that time of the month, and would be game for the shower, but DH is totally grossed out by it.

  • Hmmm seems as though there are mixed emotions about this one - - - however a woman is at her most sensual/sexual peak when she is on her period...I have done it in the past (with my ex) but my husband freaks at even knowing theres a tampon in the house so theres no chance of him even trying and thats ok....but Im sure I would if he changed his mind :-)

  • wow yeah...the thought of that is just gross. So of course for the husband and i, sex during the time of the month is a HUGE no no.

  • Absolutely Not!! first off i don't believe in it(religous reasons), second of all. that is the natural time your body is cleaning itself, so i don't think it is a good idea health wise either!!

  • I dont like to have sex while on my period, too self concious about the darn smell, yuck! I had rather not but my husband doesnt seem to mind when its almost over. Tried the towel thing and it doesnt get bad, tried the shower thing too. In general though I dont like to, I feel like crap too much to be touched, it doesnt help with cramps on me either. I will only do it to avoid giving him a BJ.
