Is period sex safe?
The stories about having sex during your period can be harmful to your health are just a myth. Sex in that time of the month bears no additional risk to your health or your partners’ health. Menstrual blood is natural body fluid, which can’t irritate the penis or harm your reproductive organs.

The most important thing is that you shouldn’t have unprotected sex during menstrual bleeding with unknown partners, and that is only because not knowing anything about their health condition. Secretion is increased during menstruation and with that also increases the chance of transmitting STD’s. During your period, there are bigger chances to transmitting diseases like HIV and hepatitis.

- Shorts the days of your period. Orgasms cause uterine contractions. Those contractions help with quickly releasing menstrual blood. So, if you experience an orgasm during your period, don’t be surprised if your menstruation is shorter.
Tips for better sex during menstruation:
Many women avoid sex during those days of the month because of the mess that is made during sexual intercourse. With the help of these following tips you will easily forget the mess and enjoy the passionate sexual intercourse:
Make sure that the both of you (you and your partner) don’t have a problem with the idea of “sex during period”. Neither you nor your partner shouldn’t feel forced when you decide to have sex. Not all men are ok with the idea of menstrual blood and not all women are in the mood for sex during menstruation. Before you get into action talk to make sure you are both on the same frequency.
Avoid the first 2 or 3 days of your period. These days are the days when the bleeding is excessive and the chances to make a mess are a lot bigger. Also it can make you feeling uncomfortable, the both of you.
Have sex in the missionary position. This is the most recommendable sex position during period, because it minimizes the flow of menstrual blood, so you don’t have to worry about the mess.
Put dark towel or tablecloth under you. Even if you leak a few drops of blood you won’t notice, so it won’t be any distractions for you.
Use condoms. Not only you avoid chances of getting STDs or unwanted pregnancies, but your partner will feel better because there will be no direct contact with the blood.
Think about shower sex. That is the best place for having sex “that” time of the month, due to the possibility of avoid leaving blood drops and traces behind.
Sex should be a pleasure for both of you, so if you can’t concentrate during the red days of the month is ok. Your period will be over in no time.
