Brief Answer: no risks, no tests needed Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to healthcare Magic! Menstrual blood as such is not a source of infection so there is no reason to be afraid. It is as safe as any other day with your wife. If you are negative for STI then there is no need to do any tests. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!
