I think we should not have sex during periods, it is quite messy and also there are more chances of getting infection. so better avoid it or you can use condoms during these periods. If you and your partner are comfortable with it, go ahead

Sex during periods is really a matter of culture, in some cultures menstruation is considered unclean, so they does not go for it but as per my knowledge sex during periods is safe but use condoms, i had sex during my periods twice or thrice its really true that it relives cramps and stress. but i advice you its better to have sex with condoms.

Sorry i am not so eager for sex, i had read it in article and also in net that sex during menstural period relives the pre menstrual problems so i asked is that true or not. my partner has no probs i discussed with him he agreed with condoms, we had sex on day 3 of my cycle, initially it was little difficult to start by later it was fine, my cramps and back ache was relived to certain extent. this was my purpose of having sex. thanks
