Yeah; there's a significant danger of having that tampon shoved way up inside you.. Ow! Hm, to the person who had the sex while tipsy... I'm thinking he was just lying and that he wasn't inside of you; otherwise, he's one hell of a small dude!

You could try anal sex while on your period, this way you can leave the tampon in, and he can still, you know, thrust and all that. I like anal sex, but it's an aquired taste.

Also, I too get horny on my period, so I masturbate a lot to ease it. Also giving my bf a blowjob or handjob helps!

It is not ok to have sex with a tampon in. My old college roommate did this when she was drunk and the next day I had to take her to the hosital. Not cool.
For me though I have sex while on my period only if I am light, but I normally have a really light period the whole time. Also when you have been lying down for a while your blood flow slows, for me it almost stops completely at night, but it does rush if you stand up. Beware.
Also let your partner know so he does freak out. Most guys are perfectly fine with it, especially if you two have been together for awhile.

Nothing Wrong With Riding the Red Pony.
Okay bad to have sex with tampon in....And it is fine to have sex on your period. It can be a little messy, but I alsays lay a towel on the bed, because when he cums, the mixture of both makes alot of liquid come out.
Also you could stash some baby wipes nearby for quick and easy clean up.
Also an orgasm is a great relief for menstral cramps.

having sex with a tampon in is bad I agree, however having sex on your period will not canse an infection any more than having sex not on your period.

pid is can be caused by sexual intercourse, but being on your period doesnt increase that risk. Those who are at increased risk are because of:


1) misscariage or abortion
2) labor and delivery
3)sexually transmitted diseases

pid can lead to infertility if left untreated

Maybe under certain conditions your doctor is right. I am not a doctor. All I am saying is I have never ever heard of there being any danger to having sex during your period. I have done it many times and have not had any problems. After you said that I did some research online to see if you were right. I could not find any info on that. But of course if that is what your doctor told you then you should follow doctor's orders.

To the girl with the original post: if you would like to be 100% sure I suggest asking your gynocologist or family doctor if they think it is dangerous for you to have sex during your period.
I am just giving my opinion.

bad idea
I just did this with my boyfriend. I was also drunk and decided I'd change it the next day, but it got lodged and i had to work so I kept going to the bathroom trying to get it out. I finally did and it was prob in almost 24 hours. Now a few days later I am paying for it with a yeast infection. I will not be doing that again.

NO it is not ok to have sex with a tampon in. Well, it is not ok for him to insert his penis when a tampon is inserted. Take it out before intercourse. It is ok to leave it in place during oral or anal tho. Technically a tampon only blocks the opening of the vagina. They are not meant to be pushed up to the cervix. During a woman's period the cervix is slightly open to allow the lining of the uterus to slough and pass. Pushing a tampon against it or possibly into it has some potentially serious ramifications. Not to mention the humility of going to the gyn or er to have the tampon removed. No, you cant just leave it there.

Sex while on your period is fine but extra care should be taken to make sure all the fun bits are clean. Bacteria is more readily introduced into the cervix/uterus during your period. Many woman find that an orgasm helps relieve cramps and those pesky hormones that rule during that time of the month.

Hi there

I have sex with a tampon in all the time. If you are just careful to situate it near your cervix neither of you can even feel it. But if you aren't comfortable with going in to get it afterwards you should refrain. I happen to be comfortable enough with my vagina to know where it ends up, and dig for it. Its the same general idea as a contraceptive sponge, except no spermicide.

It is impossible for the tampon to go anywhere but your vagina when you have sex. NO, it can NOT end up in the uterus unless something big is wrong with you. Just like your hand can not end up inside your friend's penis when you give him a hand job. If you don't believe me, take a mirror and flashlight and look at what is going on 'up there'. Or try to stick your hand into a soda bottle through it's neck. You will see that it is not possible.

The danger is that the tampon gets compacted at the top of the vagina, next to the cervix neck from the banging against it by the penis. This combined with the fluids can make the tampon pretty solid and can make it 'stick' in there. It can also dry out and make it even worse if it is left in. It is nothing that a bit of lube and fingers can't cure but many women are too afraid of their own vagina to do this. The doctor does not have anything special to remove a compacted tampon that you do not have at home. Just know that it can be difficult and a bit painful/uncomfortable and icky.

That said it is not a good idea to have sex with a tampon still in as it can get compacted and be uncomfortable to remove and if it bangs against the cervix, it can get pretty painful pretty quickly, just like a long penis with deep penetration can.

Yes, women are more prone to infection when menstruating because the cervix does not have its normal mucus plug and are more open. Combined with the fact that the uterus lining is in the process of 'dissolving' and 'disintegrating' this is a vulnerable time with germs present. As long as you and your partner is healthy and clean, no harm will be done. You anyway want to bath or shower before sex when on your period.

You can always have some shower sex. Menstrual cups are also an option. This way you also save the environment and does not have to use tampons that can pose a health risk on their own. Some brand names for menstrual cups are Diva Cup, Mooncup, the Keeper, Lunette, Ladycup, ..

Personally I enjoy period sex as much as my husband and I can't live without it despite all the naysayers.

We always had sex during my period...If I was flowing a little on the heavy side, I would put one or two tampons inside...We would put a couple of towels on the bed to protect it...Next order of business was to wash myself off good as I always wanted oral sex as the prelude to sexual filling...His stimulation of my inner parts at this time of the month was a love story in itself...When we were both sexually ready, he would pull the strings and put them in a container set aside...Let me tell you that pulling and what followed brings a smile to my face now at this later age in life...It was hot...And still is in my mind...It is thoughts like this of the past that make for some hot fantasies when you are getting in the mood for some hot sex...Sharing them with your lover makes it doubly great...The joys of sex are endless....Life is good...

I have done this before and the tampon got completely shoved up inside of me. I panicked and spent about ten minutes digging it out of myself with my finger tips. It was not very fun and I don't think I would do it again. It's just too risky, so if you really want to have sex with your period then just take it out and get in the shower. Or just do anal, or oral.
A mature man will understand that women bleed during this time and will not be so disgusted out by it that they refuse to be near your genitals during this time. Sure I get the blood part and it's gross if it gets on him, but still. If your careful and do it while your flow is light, you shouldn't have a problem.
Tell him to hop in the shower, sex in there is always better for some reason anyways.
But yeah, you can also do anal if you and him are uncomfortable with doing it while you might be suspectable to bleeding on him. Put a towel down and give him a condom and keep baby wipes by the bed. If he does happen to get a little on him he can just clean up.
Seriously, you can harm your uterus or cervex if it gets jammed up in too far, or if your guy is even remotelessly big in the genitals department, becuase it can be continously rammed into these sensitive parts repeatingly, causing a lot of damage.
It could have to be surgically removed. Permanant damage, irritation and injury can result as well.
Good luck and I hope that you make the right choice and enjoy yourself Wink

No, it really is not safe...It is possible that it can do damage when it is pushed up high in your vagina....Either take it out or don't do it...Take care...
