I was wondering if there are any specific considerations that my boyfriend and I should take into account if we are thinking about having intercourse while I am menstruating? Other than obvious mess concerns (we will have towels handy), is there anything we should know to safely engage in penetrative sex? We wouldn't be doing anything oral, due to blood.

Nope. You'll just want to remember that you can also become pregnant when having sex during your period, so you'll want to be sure to use protection.

Ok, thanks. (I'm on birth control, and we use condoms, so I think we're covered. [Wink] )
