I have had a mirena put in about 3wks ago so I'm unsure as to how long my period is going to last and/or spotting in between.

Does anyone have any tips on how to have a somewhat mess free time during sex whilst having your period?

I have read that diaphragms can be a helpful barrier and discovered (accidentially) 2 nights ago that a condom can work in a similar way  wink.gif .  If only I didn't have to wait so long for a doctors appointment for a fitting of a diaphgram.  I need something yesterday lol

Is there something else out there that works along the same way.


Please help

Turn out the light, and put down a dark coloured towel! I didn't think I'd ever do this until I remarried.... Then it became normal practice. The towel barely every gets anything on it anyway, mostly used to clean him off before he heads to the shower. I'd use the shower for the lot but can't reach the big o in there, so not an option! Lol!

Enjoy!

(loz we find it each in the strangest places...!)

You can insert a bit of sponge into your vagina.
I learnt this from the Secret Diary of a Call girl.

There are specific Beppy sponges for the purpose.

Some people use makeup sponges that are completely soap and chemical free. Don't use sea sponges, they sometimes have bits of shell grit or sand left in them despite having been washed.

Or, as PPs said, just go for it in the shower or wherever else you like it with a dark towel. original.gif

There was a really long thread about this not too long ago. I learnt some new things that day! I think it involved sex workers and sex during their periods...

It's $52 for ten. Some places are cheaper and some more expensive, this is just the first one that came up in my google search. Used like a tampon, also single use, but you can have sex with one in and it can be left in for up to 8 hours.

The reason why I mentioned sea sponges is because sometimes people think, "golly those beppy sponges are expensive, maybe I can use any old sponge". Technically you don't need to use the specific designed-for-purpose sponge, but I add the disclaimer to make sure people don't use any old one, and that they think about what they're putting in their vagina.

I really don't see it as being much different to a tampon at all, or to a menstrual cup. It's just another menstrual management tool, which happens to be usable if you want to have sex whilst menstruating.

but, but....

Isn't there a risk that the sponge will get pushed up into your cervix and be irretrievable?

I personally find the idea of using a sponge more gross that just letting the blood run free, strangely I have no problem with tampons.  Funny how different people find different things off putting.

I have no interest in 'shielding' DP from my menstrual cycle - I have to put up with his *ahem* discharges!

PS. period sex is great for cramps!

The sponge is larger than a tampon. Tampons don't get stuck in your cervix. A sponge will not get stuck in your cervix. The hole is not that big.

Different strokes for different folks. Use whatever works for you.

And yes, for some women sex really helps with menstrual cramps - this is due to the hormones involved in orgasm as well as the fact that light exercise is generally good for menstrual pain.

lol!! The opening to your cervix isnt that big! laugh.gif


Nothing wrong with period sex whatsoever. I find I am more aroused during my period then at other times of the month, plus there is all the extra lubrication which makes it nice original.gif

Just put a towel down if your flow is heavy. Mine is never that heavy so I dont even need to do that!

Yes, whilst a sponge doesn't get stuck in your cervix some people do have trouble removing them. They're a little harder to remove than a menstrual cup, but if you're comfortable with your body and relaxed then it shouldn't be an issue.

Emergency Department staff are very good at removing lost sponges, as well as lost condoms (from slipping off, as a result of not being rolled down all the way) and any other items that get lost in a vagina.
