Sexual Intercourse during Period - Question and Sex Advice


Sexual Intercourse  Advice

What do you think about period sexual intercourse? My boyfriend told me last night (after letting him know I had just gotten my period at his house before we were ready to go to bed) that does not have sex with a woman on her period. When I asked him why, he said that it's unhealthy for the man because the release unfertilized egg and other released fluids are full of toxins and can cause an infection upon entering the penis (and other undefined negative effects. When I asked him where he learned this information he said it was part of their health class in High School (in Morocco). I started laughing hysterically (not the most considerate response to his point of view, I realize) and said that I'd never heard of such a thing and it sounded an awful lot like the whole Christian thing from the Middle Ages about women on their period being "unclean" and other such religious/cultural based learned biases, and didn't think there was anything scientific about it. He said to check it out on the net, so that's what I'm doingólooking for as much information from various experts in the health and sex fields. Please pass along any info, resources, sites, etc., that you think would be helpful in this search.

Many thanks,

Lina :-)



You are right: The egg and other fluids that come from menstruation are in no way toxic to the penis (or any other part, for that matter). However, there may be some reasons to be at least a little cautious. If you have sex on your period there's a greater chance of your partner contracting a sexually transmitted disease (if you have one). Blood is a great medium for the bacteria that causes gonorrhea. It is also one of the fluids that HIV exists in. Of course, if you're not on your period then there's still all the same concerns, so there really isn't a "danger from sex on your period" beyond the normal, 21st century risks.

On the flip side, women are almost always hornier on their periods, and orgasms can reduce the pain from cramps which should leave you in a better mood. These are two good reasons for him to want to have sex then. Obviously there's still the issue of his comfort zone and boundaries that you should respect, but as far as general health risks go, it's not that much of an issue.
