Our expert says:
It is a matter of preference, or for some religious/cultural belief relating to menstrual blood. From a health perspective, there is no risk or problem with having sex during your girlfriend's period. As for the need for contraception, whilst the risk of pregnancy may be reduced, it cannot be completely excluded, so better safe than sorry!
