Great question. Although it will be messy (and may cause a small crime scene on your sheets) you most definitely can have sex during your period. It can even help with cramps and improve the period blues. That being said, having your period is not a free pass to have unsafe sex. You’re actually more vulnerable to STDs and pregnancy is still very much a concern. Respect your body and stay safe out there!
When I'm having my period and I want to have sex with my boyfriend I insert a fresh tampon to clear away any menstrual fluid and then insert an 'instead softcup'. It holds back any menstrual flow and I don't think my boyfriend even knows." - anonymous
