But there are nuances that uahealth writes about on Instagram.

What is important in the first place?

  • Talk to your partner about whether this is okay for you.

  • If ok - protection is mandatory!

  • Everything else is secondary.

Is there any harm to health?

During menstruation, the risk of getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) increases. 

The lumen of the cervix is ​​open and in combination with the environment of menstrual blood creates excellent conditions for infections.

Therefore, a condom is mandatory. 

And it won't hurt?

Everything is individual, but it shouldn't be.

Sex can even reduce menstrual pain.

This happens thanks to the release of endorphins and oxytocin into the blood 

And the possibility of getting pregnant?

It remains!

Spermatozoa are active in a woman's genital tract for 5 days, according to some sources - 7 days.

Let's project the situation if the menstrual cycle lasts 25–26 days, and menstruation lasts 5–6 days.

If intercourse took place on the fifth day of the cycle, and ovulation occurred on day 11-12, then, yes, pregnancy is possible.

How to prepare?

  • To be aesthetic: Dark underwear, dark bedding and colored condoms.

    Because if you have to wash off red stains from white sheets and your favorite lacy underwear, then you may not want to do it again.

    Colored condoms will make the color of the blood less accentuating.

  • To be safe: Condoms, condoms and more condoms. 

  • Add love.
