Mensturation during sex
Hi. I need to know this... i''ve realised just this morning as i was talking to one of my guy friends, that men think if you had sex with your girlfriend and you realise in the morning that she is on her periods, you might get sick... Could this be true?

No, you are unlikely to get sick, or become ill, simply due to her period. The main reason why people don't have sex during menstruation is due to religious belief that menstruation is a time where a woman is unclean.
