They now have menstrual cups on the market that can be worn up to 12 hours without leaking. If you chose to, a woman can have "clean" sex without blood getting anywhere. I'm surprised more people don't know about it.

I wouldn't want to have sex with a menstrual cup in... That sounds like a good way to end up explaining to a doctor why you have a menstrual cup lodged in your cervix.

It's designed to be safe. Not to get too personal, but I've never had problems with them for the past year. I see some people don't seem to appreciate my comment but some will. I'm grateful for learning about this product. I hated worrying about my period interfering with my sex life. :P

24- I totally appreciate the anecdotes actually. I wouldn't want to try it myself, but its good to know its an option. I just wouldn't want to risk it...

What risk? If it helps to know, they're similar in shape to what a --birth control diaphragm looks like. Nothing is going up your cervix. :P (Okay, on to other topics)

Some men are mature enough that they can handle having sex with the woman they love while she's on her period. Clearly you wouldn't know anything about that. It's not like women turn into gushing fountains of blood when they're menstruating, it comes out slowly. I've had sex while on my period before, and although we always put a towel down just in case, usually nothing gets on it. It's not as bad as a lot of people seem to think it is.

90 - Pretty much my experience. I haven't had a period in three years (on Depo for endometriosis), but before, my partner just didn't care. He wasn't especially turned on by it or anything, but after the first day of bleeding (which is usually the heaviest - and the day we'd avoid), there was almost no blood at all. Certainly no more than when I lost my virginity, anyway. It just didn't matter enough for us to avoid having sex for an entire week. Just keep some hypoallergenic baby wipes on han

22 - it is really, REALLY difficult to get ANYTHING through your cervix. It isn't designed for that. Trust me, I've had two uterine biopsies where they shove a tiny little tube through your cervix. My screaming freaked out the entire emergency room. A menstrual cup is NOT going up there. Not a chance in hell.

It's called "earning your red wings" it's not a preferred way to do it but its not stopping us from bang bang bang

90- while this is the exception and not the rule, my self, all my family and several of my friends have what we refer to as floods. It IS gushing and impossible to change tampons or pad without getting blood on yourself. If you can go through a regular in 15 minutes and a super plus in 1 1/2-2 hours, I wouldn't recommend trying it. So I can see why some people would be turned off. Frankly I'd rather not end up covered in blood, even if the sex is great. Just my opinion though.

#1 & #109, I used to be friends with this guy that had an extreme fetish for a woman on her cycle. (as well as the blood) He'd always "coincidentally" want to hang around when I was on my period. He actually ended up attempting to get into my pants. Quite aggressively, I might add. And that's how I got this scar on my knuckles, and why we haven't spoken in years.

Reply

Ouch, sorry to hear that 116. I wouldn't have sex on my period because my sister and I get horrendously bad cramps, meds don't help much either.

Reply

129 - That is sometimes the case, but it depends on how bad the cramps are to begin with. I had such bad cramps when I started having my period that I'd actually pass out from the pain. My doctor put me on birth control when I was 15 (I hadn't even held hands with a guy at that point), and when I was 24 we found out the cause: endometriosis. It hasn't been a problem in years (I've been on the Depo shot for a few years to completely stop my periods), but if I were having cramps like that, I would

Unless you're pregnant and in labor and dilated, a menstrual cup can't get "lodged in your cervix." It's barely able to open to accommodate a fingertip when a woman is ovulating, which is when hormones cause it to soften and open slightly. I have no idea why women are not taught about their own reproductive organs in health class.

Yeah. That's a great way to get shot. I can hear the conversation now *Honest, officer. I thought he was a burgler or a rapist*

She could be 18 and still living at home, that's not too young to have sex. it's respectful to whoever you're staying with to ask permission

Reply

Don't assume OP is young just because she had to ask. Parents can be very strict about an SO, no matter what age you are. She could be young or her mom is strict.

Reply

I'm 20 and still live at home as I don't earn enough to move out, so I have to ask. And the answers still no sadly.

Im 22 and just graduated and looking for a full time job so I'm still at home but I still have to ask permission

Reply

I still live at home and I'm 22 and if I brought my boyfriend over to stay the night, I'd be scalped. It was a joke at the fact that teens are having sex younger and younger these days. Thanks for taking the time to fervently reply to my comment, though. Bahaha

Reply

Meaning you know your own comment didn't really make sense in the first place. I'm 19, live at home during weekends and in my dorm during the week. And if I don't ask who I'm bringing or tell where I'm going, I'm pretty much not allowed to do so. As stated before: common courtesy. WE seem to have been brought up decently, how about you?

Reply

I don't know what it's like to not be able to afford a home, I'm glad though the military will allow you to live on base so I won't have to worry about it :P

I think we're forgetting that political marriages wedded off 8-10 year olds in the past. We're also forgetting that the 16-18 year old thing is a recent invention. Prior to the last few hundred years age was not a factor in many situations as much as the base desires or need to procreate. ( especially in Asian countries. ) It's all a matter of current standards and norms set by political, social and religious influences. Anyhow, I understand the joke, but its incorrect. History is cycl

I'm 26 and still live at home with my parents, because I'm disabled and what I get for disability is basically a pittance. I'm trying to pay off my student loan before I think about moving out. I've been with my partner for eight years, and he's been allowed to sleep over, in my room, since after our first year together. I had moved out, and then moved back home to go back to college (and then got really sick). My parents were pretty sure he didn't sleep on the couch at my apartment. Fuck, he's

I guess I'm a slight anomaly here; 22 and living on my own. Then again I went to school and worked two jobs after high school.

107 - That doesn't make you better than anyone else, most people who live at home are working just as hard. My parents own our house free and clear - the mortgage was paid off ten years ago. But I pay my share of the electricity, Internet, my own groceries, and maintaining my Dad's second car (a van we inherited from my grandfather) that I use to get to and from physical therapy. Up until I got sick, I had never been without work for longer than a week since I turned 15. I worked 35 hour weeks t

137- Don't feel so threatened. I was merely stating a fact; it isn't totally impossible to be stable and self-sufficient, though it obviously comes at a cost. I wasn't trying to place myself above anyone else.

not necessarily, its respectful to ask permission, doesn't matter how old u are if u live in ur parents house, and she never said they were having sex, the mother just assumed

Reply

However old she is, she seems a lot more mature than you. "Like". That word drives me damn crazy. " Are you like, 7 years old? God your like, so immature!

Reply

The mention of her like comment is probably not so much her being stereotyped as a prep who uses "like" but more so of a "like" as in around age 7.

I am 21 and I ask my mom if I can have someone sleeping over because I still live at home. And it is normal for a mother to not want her daughter having sex while they are home ^^ DERP, that should have been a reply to #8!

Reply

I have a section of the family house to myself and always ask - guy or girl , romantic or not if my parents mind. Common courtesy. If you don't own the home, don't assume it's fine. Kudos to you man. :) Ps. Don't worry. I mis reply every so often. Lol.
