In brief: You can

There is nothing dangerous about having sex during your period.
This is a myth. If you don't mind the mess then there is no medical reason to avoid sex during this time.

In brief: Sex during periods

There is no reason why you can't have sex during periods, as long as you and your partner feel comfortable.
Actually menstrual blood makes a very good lubricant, and may enhance sexual satisfaction for some. Unless personal, relgious or cultural traditionsrestrict sex during periods.There are many ways to avoid mess, use a towel on the bed, have a warm wet washcloth by ur side or a quick shower may help.

In brief: Yes,you can

Sex during your period is still o k.
In the past physician's thought that it made the patient more susceptible to tubal infections(salpingitis) by driving vaginal bacteria through a more open cervix into the fallopian tube. Obviously, sex during this time may be somewhat uncomfortable with cramping or "messy' condom use and bed protection can be of benefit during this time.
