Is it possible to have sexual intercourse during menstruation?

Yes, it is possible to have sex during the days of menstruation if that is what the woman desires.

However, it is important to remember that there is no safe period to avoid pregnancy during the menstrual cycle and, thus, pregnancy would be possible with menstruation if sexual intercourse takes place without contraceptive protection.

Therefore, it is advisable to use a contraceptive method even if you have sex during your period if you do not want to become pregnant. In addition, if it is barrier contraception (such as a condom), it will prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
