Many of us are hesitant to try it, because we’re culturally conditioned to think it’s unclean. From a purely medical standpoint, however, s3x during menstruation is completely normal. It even has a lot of benefits for both partners. Here are some top facts.
S-ex during menstruation isn’t harmful There’s a pervasive myth out there that menstrual blood is dirty and full of impurities that might harm the penis. This is nonsense! But in most times its considered to be a very dirty act.
Menstrual blood is a mixture of blood and the discarded tissues that line the uterus each month in preparation for pregnancy. Coming in contact with this blood will not harm the penis in any way. In fact, menstruation blood serves as a great (and harmless) lubricant. There is also a common misconception that the pe nis can hurt the uterus during s-ex while she’s having her period.
Although it’s true that a tiny opening corps up in the uterus to pass menst rual blood during her period, this hole is impossibly small for the pe nis to enter. S-ex during menstruation causes absolutely no harm to a woman’s uterus.
Menstruation may increase a woman’s s-ex drive Many women feel a higher s-ex drive during their men strual cycle. There is a lot of conflicting and confusing information about why this happens. But one reason,
according to Sara Gottfried, M.D., author of The Hormone Cure, is that a woman’s estrogen is at an all-time low at the beginning of her period. As her estrogen levels rise over the following week, her testosterone levels rise as well, helping her be turned on more easily. Another factor may be the increased blood flow and lubrication in the genital region, a heaviness that could translate into arousal.
The possibility of getting pregnant is also lower during this time, which might make women feel more S3xually liberal. Also, some women may become aroused by the thought of doing something S3xually forbidden or unconventional. You can still get pregnant.

The chances of becoming pregnant during menstruation are extremely small, but it can still happen. Though generally it is a very safe time to have unprotected s-ex if you’re trying to avoid pregnancy, a man’s sperm has the ability to survive inside the woman’s body for a few days and there is a small chance that an early ovulation could cause pregnancy.
