Our expert says:
Some people prefer not to have sex during mentruation. This may be for cultural or other reasons. There is no medical reason not to do so provided adequate care is taken to ensure safe sex practices (ie. condom use as there is a greater chance for the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases).
Perhaps you should discuss your preference with your partner. Remember that 'making love' does not always have to involve penetrative sex. Couples can enjoy giving and receiving pleasure and intimacy and sensuality without necessarily having penetrative intercourse.
