Can I have sex on my period?

When you’re on your period, sex might be the first or last thing on your mind. It sounds kind of gross, but if you want to, there’s no reason not to go for period sex. Will there be mess? Definitely. But it’s nothing putting a towel down and a bit of stain remover can’t fix.


Is it dangerous for me?

No, not if you’re using condoms. Your body’s at a slightly higher risk of infection, but take precautions and you’ll be fine.


Is it dangerous for my partner?

No more than usual, but again, condoms. There’s nothing disgusting or dirty about period blood, so if you’re otherwise healthy it’s totally fine to have sex as you normally would – just be aware of the extra mess.


Can I still get pregnant?

The short answer is yes. The long answer? Still yes – but it’s less likely. You can still be ovulating while you’re on your period, so make sure you’re using – you’ve guessed it – condoms! For real, they’re great.


Will it make it worse?

There’s a myth floating around that having sex on your period makes the flow last longer, but that’s not true at all. Actually, it can be the opposite. When you orgasm, your body pushes out more blood so it might look heavier right then. But overall it’ll be shorter, since there’s only so much blood in the first place.


Will it make it better?

Some people say having sex is a great cure for cramps, and because of all those hormones, your sex drive might already be higher when you’re on. We’re all for anything that’ll make you feel better during your period, so if you feel like it, go ahead and do anything you want to.
