The idea of having sex on one’s period receives mixed reactions from different people. For some, it is the best time to have sex while for some others, it is impossible to have sex during this time. Again, a few others feel that having sex during periods can have adverse effects on their health. There cannot be a unanimous answer to the question- is it okay to have sex on your period? Discussed below are a few things which will make the subject clearer for you:
The menstrual blood does the work of lubrication for those who try to have sex during their periods. This helps the penis to enter into the body of the woman more easily and also helps an easy mobility of the sperm.

Many people ignore the condom while having sex during periods since it is impossible for the egg and the sperm to be fused at this stge. However, it should be kept in mind that the purpose of wearing condoms is not only birth control but also prevention against the sexually transmitted diseases like HIV. Even if your cervix opens to the slightest, you will get infected by the disease and it is thus a safer option to use protection at the time of having sex.
Greater Chances of Yeast Infection
Yeast infection in the vagina is something that is common in a number of women and the possibilities increase if they have sex during menstruation. It may also cause the bacteria from Urinary Tract Information to come up to the bladder. However, not much evidence supporting the fact has been found so far.
Feel Good Hormones
Having sex during menstruation will also help in the release of some feel good hormones such as dopamines and oxytocin. So you can at least try it once to find out how it feels.
Period Sex is a Messy Affair
There’s no denying the fact that period sex is messy and nasty. The blood coming out of the woman’s body may get spilled here and there and can prevent the man from f**king hard. Though he understands that your bleeding is a natural process and the intercourse is no way related to it, he might feel a bit awkward to carry on with the sexual activities. Having sex during period is thus gross for some. This is the reason why most of the men are against the idea of having sex during the menstrual period of their partners.
It will also make things dirty and you might have to wash off the bed-sheet as well as the clothes right after it’s done. However, considering the negligible chances of becoming pregnant at this time, period sex can be tried by people who are unwilling to have an issue (unmarried people or married partners who are do not want to go for future plans at the moment).
It should be kept in mind that the spilling of blood across the bed-sheet is not a big deal. You can always clean it off. Similarly, the blood spilled over the dick can be easily wiped off. There is no need to give importance to the awkward feeling associated with sexual intercourse during periods considering the health benefits, ease of penetration and mood elevations that are associated with it.
Thus, as you can understand, the reasons in favour of having sex during periods are more in number than those in favour of avoiding the same. It is thus clear that having sex during menstruation is highly beneficial in different aspects and is not likely to cause you any harm.
So, do away with all your embarrassment and all those negative thoughts that you have been associating with sex during menstruation.
