Dangers of Sex during Menstruation

During menstruation, (7 days), the veins of the uterus are congested and are prone to rupture easily. Vaginal walls swell as well during menstruation. This explains the dull pain in the vagina during menses and is 100% normal. Having intercourse during your period can increase the chances of irritation to the swelled up walls. The advantages of endorphins at this point mask the danger of period sex where irritation of the vaginal walls and introduction to infection are major risks. Any wound or bleeding is a fine gateway to infection.
The cervix is slightly opened during menstruation to let out blood. This heightens the risk of infection, not being limited only to the vagina, but additionally to the uterus. The penetration of the penis into the vagina during menstruation is no more than the introduction to germs at a time when the body is unable to fight them (studies have shown that immunity is decreased during menstruation).
‘Engaging in sex during menses is associated with the development of sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HIV infection, which in turn are associated with cervical cancer’ (Ben-Noun, 2003:101).
Obviously, period sex can be really, really messy and unhygienic. This fact by itself drops the interest of both parties about the idea of having sex during menstruation.

So, is period sex good or bad? Well, momentary pleasure versus risky health – you be the judge.

NOTE: God made our body and His wise instructions for health are outlined in the Bible. If only we would listen and take notice of the health principles of the scriptures.
We’ve seen that there are proven health reasons to abstain from sex for the complete 7 days of menstruation (the time it takes to be sure you are completely free of blood and clean to go).
“‘When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening.
Leviticus 18:19
“Do not have sexual relations with a woman during her period of menstrual impurity.
Be well. Be wise!
