How do I have sex if I’m on my period?

Your period does not have to stop you from having sex, but it may be slightly different than usual. It’s important to communicate with your partner and ensure that both parties are comfortable and consenting. Some people find it uncomfortable or messy, while others may enjoy the extra-lubricated sensation. Laying down a towel or having sex in the shower can make it easier to manage any potential mess, and hydrogen peroxide can be used to remove blood stains from clothing or sheets. Additionally, soft discs can be worn during penetrative sex, and menstrual cups or soft tampons can be used to minimize blood flow during other types of sex. Ultimately, the decision to have sex during menstruation is a personal one and varies from person to person.
