Thank you for your query.
Is is generally considered absolutely safe to have sex during the periods because there is no possibility of ovulation, and hence pregnancy.
You can definitely ejaculate inside the vagina, however, for reasons of hygiene during menses, and to avoid transmission of infection, to which a female is more prone during this time, it is better to use a condom.
There is no possibility of a pregnancy as I said earlier.
Take care and feel free to ask further questions.

Can u tell me what is the average time a healthy man has sex for. Also after my first session I get very tired and feel exhausted and I am unable to have sex the second time within 15 mins of the first one. Can u suggest some foods to gain energy before sex.

Every individuals threshold and capacity for sexual intercourse differs.
As long as you and your partner are satisfied , there is nothing to worry about.
Take care.
