Contrary to the excuse some women give to their man, having sex on your period is absolutely safe. The myth that it’s dangerous originates largely from religious texts. Many people wrongly believed that women were “dirty” or “unclean” while menstruating, and for this reason, contact with menstruating women was limited or forbidden entirely.
In fact, some religions still adhere to these practices; however, medically and secularly speaking, there is no reason not to have s*x on your period.

In fact, s*x while you are menstruating can help ease the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome...
Many women say that orgasms can ease their cramps and the orgasmic contractions of the uterus offer a soothing internal massage. Also, orgasms release endorphins, natural painkillers and mood enhancers, which can help soothe the cramps, headaches, mild depression, and irritability sometimes associated with periods. Women should enjoy s*x more when they are menstruating because of increased feelings of fullness in the pelvic and genital areas, which offer a head start on arousal. 
There is one caveat, though: Safe s*x is even more crucial during your period. Your risks of s*xually transmitted diseases and infections are higher than normal during this time because the cervix opens to allow blood to pass through. Unfortunately, this creates the perfect pathway for bacteria to travel deep inside the pelvic cavity. A woman is also more likely to pass on blood-borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis to a partner during your period and more likely to develop yeast or bacterial infections because the vagin a’s pH during menstruation is less acidic. Finally, there is still a chance that you could get pregnant during your period (unless you’re on the pill), so don’t assume it’s safe to forgo contraception.

No muss, no fuss. If you are worried about staining your sheets, you can lay a towel down underneath you. You can also take things to the bathroom and have s*x in the shower or the bathtub. Not only will it be a sensuous and exciting change from the norm, but it will also help to wash any blood away.

You can even enjoy oral sex during your period; it’s perfectly safe and healthy — although, as I said above, it’s very important to practice safer s*x techniques (like using a dental dam).

Maintain your s*x appeal. Sometimes when that time of the month rolls around, all you want to do is throw on your old sweats, lie on the couch, and gorge on feel-good snacks and ice cream. Unfortunately, foods such as these will only serve to make bloating and cramps worse, and lead to lethargy that will only add to your bad mood.  
Instead, commit to maintaining your s*x appeal during your period. Some women claim that they feel s*xy and powerful during their periods, so tap into that side of you and go out for a night of fun. Getting active will help to keep your mind off your cramps, and your partner won’t be able to resist your sensual moves.

So ladies, your period doesn’t have to slow down your s*x life!
