5 helpful tips for getting intimate during menstruation

What do you think of getting intimate during menstruation? I know a lot of you will say capital “NO” to intimacy during your period because you have assumed and imagined how messy and gross it’s going to be. Well, It isn’t as gross or harmful as you think. Seriously!

Some men even feel they would get seriously sick or infected if they get intimate with a lady during her period. I wonder where they heard that one from.

Just because your woman is having her period doesn’t mean you have to forego intimacy. If you love her, it won’t be a big deal to you.

For some women, getting intimate during menstruation can be even more pleasurable than any other time of the month.

This is due to the fact that women are usually more aroused around their periods. Sounds crazy right? I think I just leaked a big secret. Sorry ladies…

A study published in 2013 in Cephalalgia concluded that having intercourse during menstruation may reduce migraine, headache, pain, and cramps in women.

So, you would be doing us a huge favor by agreeing to intimacy during our periods. It’s just blood, unharmful blood; there is nothing infectious about it. Nothing bad will happen if it gets on a guy’s manhood.

If you decide to try it out, here are 5 helpful tips for getting intimate during menstruation…


5 helpful tips for getting intimate during menstruation

1. Talk about it with your partner:

Before you even think of jumping on your partner during her period, talk to her about it first. Find out if she feels okay with it. It’s really important to have a discussion in advance; you don’t want to take her by surprise.

Just make sure you’re both comfortable with the idea and know what to expect. Avoid acting squeamish or disgusted; it will totally make her feel like you’re turned off by her!

2. There is no need for lubrication: 

The need for lubrication lessens during a woman’s period; in fact, it is not needed at all. The blood is enough lubrication for as many rounds as you wish to go. But if you want, you can have some lube nearby just in case you need one.

3. Do it in the shower:

If you feel you can’t stand the sight of even a tiny droplet of blood, just ditch the bed and do it in the shower.

Having intercourse in the shower instead of your bed is a great way to minimize the mess. You won’t even notice she’s on her period while you’re doing it in the shower.

Plus you’ll have so much fun experimenting with new positions! If you want to do it on your bed, make sure you cover it with a blanket or some other cloth to avoid staining your sheets.

4. Stick to one or two positions:

If you and your partner feel super adventurous, try switching up positions as much as you can hold. Some periods could be quite uncomfortable so if your partner isn’t feeling herself, just stick to simple positions like missionary or spooning.

5. Take the necessary precautions:

If you are really worried about getting infected, use protection to minimize your chances of contracting any infections.

It’s also possible for a woman to get pregnant even during menstruation, so if you want to prevent unwanted pregnancy, you’ll definitely want to use protection.


Getting intimate during menstruation is as safe as ever. Menstrual blood cannot give you an infection; you can only get infected if the woman you’re sleeping with already had an infection before her menses. Having intercourse during a woman’s period is not harmful in any way.

If you are going to contract anything from her, you can easily get it from her vaginal fluids. If you aren’t convinced, take out some time and ask your doctor about it.

  1. Going biblical, it's not a good thing.

    Leviticus chapter 15:19-24

    19 “Whenever a woman has her menstrual period, she will be ceremonially unclean for seven days. Anyone who touches her during that time will be unclean until evening.
    20 Anything on which the woman lies or sits during the time of her period will be unclean.
    21 If any of you touch her bed, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
    22 If you touch any object she has sat on, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
    23 This includes her bed or any other object she has sat on; you will be unclean until evening if you touch it.
    24 If a man has sexual intercourse with her and her blood touches him, her menstrual impurity will be transmitted to him. He will remain unclean for seven days, and any bed on which he lies will be unclean.

    Am not saying am the churchious person but I think I will pass.

    1. Thanks for that awesome comment, sweetie. But let me ask you "How many of the old testament rules do you obey?"

      I think you need to obey this one in particular:

      Leviticus 15:1-5;31

      The Law Concerning Bodily Discharges:

      1 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,

      2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When any man has a discharge from his body, his discharge is unclean.

      3 And this shall be his uncleanness in regard to his discharge—whether his body runs with his discharge, or his body is stopped up by his discharge, it is his uncleanness.

      4 Every bed is unclean on which he who has the discharge lies, and everything on which he sits shall be unclean.

      5 And whoever touches his bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water, and be unclean until evening.

      31 ‘Thus you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, lest they die in their uncleanness when they defile My tabernacle that is among them.

      32 This is the law for one who has a discharge, and for him who emits semen and is unclean thereby.

  2. Nice comment there, Ricky. I agree with you on the fact that the choice depends on the partners involved. If they don't see anything messy or gross about it, they can have sex during a woman's period.

    I also want to maintain that it is as safe and healthy as any other time. If a woman has an STI you could contract it via her vaginal fluids and not just her menstrual blood. The risk isn't higher when she's menstruating!

  3. Well…..it's a bit of a controversial topic.

    But then, (going biblical) laws and commandments of the Old testament, seem to have been watered down or modified over generations.

    For instance, in the new testament…..there were no such laws. Something like a menstrual cycle is a very private thing. It's a natural phenomenon, which doesn't require any broadcast, announcement, or ceremony (as in, the Old testament era).

    Why should a lady be treated as an outcast or disease, in this time and era, for 7 days, because of menstruation……not even our Lord Jesus would sanction that.

    As for the sex, its a personal thing too…..the idea of "sex with blood" is disgusting, and can't be appealing to all and sundry.
    Even the ladies are disgusted with themselves during the said period, let alone, allow a guy to get close to her "sensual regions" during the period.

    So, it all depends on the partners involved…..sex is a pleasurable activity. If both consenting adults and partners, consent to it during the ladies period, all good.

  4. Many people say that the woman during menstruation cannot get pregnant, but this is totally wrong!!

    Yes, the chances to get pregnant are small, but she’s still able to conceive because the sperm can live inside a woman's body for several days after intercourse.

    It's possible that this timeframe will extend into the beginning of the woman's next fertile period, so beware and think twice before you ejaculate inside of her!

    However, there’re some benefits too. Some women experience a heightened libido and emotional reaction to sex around the time of their period.

    Also, it’s scientifically proved that many women experience stronger orgasms during their period! Not all, but many women get relieved their usual menstrual cramping with orgasms during the menstruation!

    So, if you don’t like sex during menstruation, this could be a great opportunity to try anal sex instead. Of course, this is much better for a man then a woman, but you could use a manual stimulation of her clitoris during the anal intercourse which could bring mutual satisfaction for both partners.

    In some societies, the sex during menstruation is a taboo. Even some religions (like Islam) strictly prohibited the sex during menstruation!

    Bottom line – Sex during menstruation: I suggest you to try it only in case she is also interested in it. If she feels pain, just leave it! Otherwise, you could take advantage and try anal sex, which I prefer in such situations and I must say it’s a great experience!!!
