My Boyfriend or Best Friend is really apprehensive about having sex with me while I’m on my period. While I understand somewhat, I don’t really get why he can’t just have a shower after doing the deed? Haha..Is it really as gross as he thinks?

I voted no, because I don’t want to; but, that’s because I have endometriosis, and sex can be painful anyway, but during my period it’s HORRIFIC; it feels like I’m being stabbed, it’s excruciating, and just not a possibility, at all.
Thankfully, I’ve been period-free for 3 years thanks to the mini-pill, and only had like 4 periods over the 3 years before that, so, it’s not an issue at the moment!

@barbie86: Sorry to hear about your endo. 🙁 I was in the hospital two weeks ago for blackouts and stomach pains. When they did an ultrasound they told me I had a cyst on my right ovary; new news to me. I never noticed it until this cycle and it’s been pretty achy 🙁

@rcac1208: Fiance and I have sex while I’m on my period, and he just wipes down with a washcloth after we’re done. Neither one of us wants to go even five days without sex, and with all the other bodily fluids we exchange, I don’t see why my period would be any worse lol.

It depends. Some people get really queasy at the sight/smell/etc. of blood, to the point of nausea or fainting. It may also trigger PTSD in some. I’m not saying your Boyfriend or Best Friend is like that, but you need to understand that people react to it differently and it’s completely alright.
Personally, my Fiance and I don’t find it gross. Again, to each their own.

@TattedNYBride: These are my thoughts exactly. Haha..

Sex during the period is usually better for the girl – natural lubrication! And we’re more sensitive then. What about if you do it IN the shower? Or lay down a towel? It really isn’t that messy unless you’re very heavy. My Fiance won’t do it bc he’s grossed out. Whatever.. As if his come is wonderful.

haven’t had my period in a couple years now, but I’m off the pill for now and no, we wouldn’t have sex on my period. I don’t even feel good, let alone sexy, during AF.

@rcac1208: Add another choice for “Sometimes.” We do on occasion but it’s messy so we don’t do it very often.

We do wherever when it is light and if its heavy then we do it in the shower. My period is often super light so its not usually a problem.

I voted yes 🙂 Darling Husband and I do have sex when I’m on my period sometimes. He doesn’t think it’s gross at all, and just showers afterwards. I only mind it when I’m just not feeling well-cramping or tired- or when my period’s heavy, then it just gets too messy and not worth it lol. But some guys mind it and some don’t. H just gets too impatient to wait 5 days for me to be done, so we established early on in the relationship that it wasn’t going to be an issue for either of us.

@rcac1208: my Fiance always exclaims, “No. Messy.” I just tease him about it now and get a foot rub instead! haha

@rcac1208: We do. On most days I have a dark towel and use something like this just so I don’t have to worry about anything.

I voted No – I would but my SO doesn’t want to. Buuut he can only wait so long so we usually get down in the last couple days of it where it’s super light.

I voted yes. Usually we’ll use a condom and put a towel down so we don’t stain the sheets. My Fiance doesn’t mind at all!
