In brief: Sure

There is no danger having sex while a woman is on her period other than the same risks that exist any other time.
You should use condoms if you want to avoid pregnancy and are not using other birth control. Condoms also reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Important if not in a monogamous relationship.
