Can I have intercourse with my wife during her periods? Is it safe?

Let me Explain. A woman's risk of std and infection is higher since the cervix opens to allow blood to pass through creating the perfect environment for bacteria to get deep inside the pelvic cavity. You are also more likely to pass on blood-borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis to a partner and the vagina's ph is less acidic during this time increasing the chances of yeast infection.
