Today, I was getting everything ready for mine and my husband's first wedding anniversary. Flowers, check. Crisp new bed sheets, check. Silk underwear, check. Crippling cramps and an early period, check. FML

Yep #9 if the river runs red take the dirt trail.

Oral is always an option. (If they're both comfortable with it.)

It's only an option for her to give oral to him. No pleasure in it for OP!

Why is that? He can please her in return. There's so much more to sex then just sticking it in. Even if the OP just uses a standard tampon, there's plenty of things the husband can do to please her. The clit is on the outside of her body. Don't underestimate the power of hands and fingers.

There's plenty of people who'll go down on a girl who's on her period. 'Blood Wings' are a thing for a reason yanno.

You mean "red wings" don't you?

Some people just don't like to do anything sexual on their period. Personally it makes me feel unsexy as anything and I wouldn't want a guy to try to please me! Especially not with a string hanging out down there...

You say string... I say fuse for the bloody messy sexytime bomb.

Damn OP. That's happened to my girlfriend too unfortunately :( Is anal an option?

Suck to be a Female. I got 99 problems but blood aint one.

Tough luck! At least you'll be in pain on new bed sheets?!

why did that get down voted? thats exactly what i was thinking, you cant ever use new sheets on a period. The newer they are the more likely your body is to decide you dont deserve nice things

Pain relievers and an old towel could save the situation if they're up to it. Orgasms are great for helping with cramps if it's not too painful to do anything to achieve ******. Afterwards a nice heating pad, snuggles, a favourite treat, and a movie can do wonders for the morale aspect.

Or shower sex! Pop some pain relievers, wait for them to kick in and shower together and have fun in there

The cramps would be more of a hinderance on sex than the period IMO.

Looks like the start of ******* week.

You can't fault mother natures timing

I can't tell people this enough. There's something on the market called "Soft cups". It inserts just like a diaphragm. You can have "clean" sex. Blood shouldn't be an issue if used properly.

This really weirds me out.. but at the same time I am oh so curious.

If you aren't comfortable with those there are also soft tampons. The look like a marshmellow and are like a sponge.

Those soft cups don't work for every woman. I would know :/

#28 I'm sure that might be a rare case for some but at least you learnt about the product. Most never even heard about it and dread their cycle. My period is never an issue.

I'm a woman who has sex on her period, but usually towards the end when her period is very light. This really interests me and I'm going to look into it. Are they in pharmacies and stores?

boxers4lyfe 17

Yes they are and if they work with your body I'm sure they work great. I, however, just shower afterwards. They're single use and that can add up $$$

For those that can use them, they sell them at Walgreens. It's $8 for a box of 12. And they can be washed and reused for your entire period. I can't take the pill so I'm at mother nature's mercy when I get my period. If you still find it's too much money, then only use them as a back up plan if you want to be intimate. To me, great worry free sex is worth its cost.

That plastic isn't designed to be reused so to anyone who tries them, if you wash em, keep an eye out for tears in the cup. If you want a cup for the purpose of mess free period, id suggest diva cup and use soft cups for sex purposes.

yeah i was gonna say. i use the diva cup and its great. sex on your period with it in? nope

There are so many other ways to control your period than the pill. I use contraceptive patches and they're great. You stick each one on your skin like a nicotine patch, leave it on for a week and then replace it twice (so you have them on for 3 weeks) and then have a week off so you can bleed. They both control and lighten the strength and pain of the dreaded red river.
