Greetings … I want to ask if we have sex while my wife is menstruating and her period will run out a few days after intercourse, will the wife be pregnant?

1 Answer:

Hello Shukri, thank you for asking.


The topic of sexual relations during menstruation invites a variety of opinions between those who agree with those who do not. Medically, during menstruation, there is a change in the acidity of the vaginal environment, besides that the cervix is ‚Äč‚Äčopen, and many uterine blood vessels are open. These things increase the risk of infection due to bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. In addition, the risk of transmitting blood-borne diseases, such as hepatitis, also increases. Therefore, from a medical perspective, to our knowledge it is not recommended to have sexual relations during menstruation.


The possibility of conception during sexual intercourse during menstruation, is very small. However, that does not mean 100% can prevent pregnancy. It is best to use a contraceptive method even if sexual intercourse is done during a menstrual wife, to reduce the risk of an unplanned pregnancy.


This is the information that we can provide. May be useful. Regards.
