Condoms and Sex: I assume this question is primarily can one get pregnant when one is on their period. I will let the gyn experts answer this question. But, there are numerous stds including HIV that one can get from unprotected sexual intercourse. In america today one of the largest groups getting HIV is post-menopausal women who do not remember that there are more reasons to have your partner wear a condom.
