skipping sex during periods

i need to know what problems i may encounter if my boyfriend of 4 years and i would engage in sex during my monthly cycle bearing in mind that i tend to mense for longer than 2 weeks at a time and the gynae has checked me and found no problems. i was brought up with the belief that periods are dirty and i shouldn't be touched by my man because its dirty and men find sleeping with a woman on her periods as disgusting. most of my colleuges talk about how they are enjoying sex even though its that dreadful time of the month!! help me understand

And as far as my experience goes - men aren't disgusted by it, they're turned on!

I have found that the best treatment for period pain is a good orgasm! Do try it, if your boyfriend is willing - why not?!?

i think that the nicest sex you could have is during that time of the month ask your hubby if he would like to try it. if you feel uncomfortable because of the mess try to put a towel underneath u and afterwards just trow it in the washing machine. i encourage you to do it.
