skipping sex during periods
i need to know what problems i may encounter if my boyfriend of 4 years and i would engage in sex during my monthly cycle bearing in mind that i tend to mense for longer than 2 weeks at a time and the gynae has checked me and found no problems. i was brought up with the belief that periods are dirty and i shouldn't be touched by my man because its dirty and men find sleeping with a woman on her periods as disgusting. most of my colleuges talk about how they are enjoying sex even though its that dreadful time of the month!! help me understand
