It's important to be able to trust and talk honestly with your boyfriend, especially if you're having any kind of sex. I'm sure he would be aware that all women get periods sometimes. You could tell him that you feel a bit embarrassed but you're having your period at the moment so would rather not have sex.
What are you scared might happen? Do you feel comfortable with him otherwise?
