Yes it is safe to have intercourse during periods, but with precautions as the chances of both partners getting /transmitting infections are more. Also risk of sexually transmitted diseases are more. The whole month is there for you to enjoy, why cant you have some self control? why invite unwanted trouble when you can prevent things that cannot be cured???

Hi. I need help. I tried to find answers in the internet but I cannot find any. I am 25 years old. I am already 5 days delayed from my menstrual flow . I have a 28 days regular cycle. My last menstrual flow was March 26 and until now, I do not have it. Me and my husband have sex on the 5th and 6th day of my period which is said to be safe. we have been using condoms , but before using condoms he first enters it 3 times then he pulls it out and use condoms which I think is safe. I have tried to have a pregnancy test in the evening and in the morning 2 days after I realized that my period was delayed but the results came out negative. I was experiencing cramps as if it is that I am going to have my period but until now nothing comes out. I am experiencing frequent urination but I think it is only because of my UTI . I am also feeling dizzy and i feel like having nausea but I do not know if it is only a result of my stress because I keep on thinking that I am pregnant . Am I pregnant? or I am only thinking that I am pregnant that is why my body has been feeling that way. Please help me.
