Sex during your period is a personal choice. The risk of getting pregnant is low, but keep in mind that sperm can live for a number of days in the body. If a man does not ejaculate inside you there is a low risk (but not absolute) to get pregnant.Being your fiance it is important that you both discuss the planning of pregnancies and decide on a contraceptive.It takes away the anxiety of getting pregnant and makes sex more fun!
