Here are some period sex tips:

How period sex is approached is unique to each couple — some might prefer to have shower sex while menstruating to make it less messy. Some people wear a tampon up until intercourse, and then use a lubrication. Some couples might prefer to lay a towel on top of their bedding, while others might enjoy getting a bit messy. So as long as both partners are comfortable with the situation, there’s no reason to avoid having sex while menstruating.

Can you get pregnant if you have sex on your period?

The short answer is: yes.

Is there a risk of STIs when having sex on your period?

You may be more likely to contract an STI during your period, so condoms are important when having unprotected sex with an untested partner (8).
