Is it healthy to have sex while menstruating?
It is indeed healthy but should be done safely. Both partners must be comfortable beforehand. Many would say having sex while your partner is on her period is disgusting and unsanitary, others might find it normal.
Anthony A. finds it weird that females have sex while they’re on their period. “I just find it unhealthy and it’s weird that they would feel comfortable to actually do that. I mean won’t it hurt? Won’t It be uncomfortable?”
In reality it is normal and completely healthy.
It is important to remember, when having sex on your period you still run the same risks of getting a sexually transmitted disease or infection, as regular intercourse. Before you decide to have sex make sure your partner is clean and/or use a condom.
Getting pregnant when on your period is very unlikely but it can happen. Menstrual cycles can vary for each person, but a woman usually ovulates towards the end of her cycle. While birth control is effective at preventing pregnancies it does not protect you from getting an STD/STI. Although many find it disgusting, it truly isn’t.
It is okay to have sex while you’re on your period. If your partner is willing to there’s nothing to worry about.
At times people are afraid of what others have to say, but you don’t have to tell any one “hey I had sex yesterday, while I was on my period.” It should be between you and your partner.
A suggestion in order to make things less “messy” is trying to avoid positions like being on top and Doggy Style; stick to Missionary, Sexy Spoon, The Sensual Spoon or The Spider Web. You always have the option of having sex in the shower.
Its totally natural to have sex while your menstruating, and after speaking with your partner and coming to an agreement, go for it!
Remember readers no one should participate in something they feel uncomfortable with.
