Read his tweets below….

“Try not to starve your partner of sex during your Mentrual period as a woman.

There are advantages of having sex during your period.

Although it can get messy anyways, but then it can reduce the duration of the period, relief cramps to an extent, and you should use a CD!

Sex during menstrual period
Doctor encourages sex during menstrual period.

Hey guys! Before your rage wears a dirty pant, please know that it’s optional… Some people do it anyways!

So this is how to have safe sex during your periods! You don’t want to stain the sheets with blood because it can get messy. So try having sex in the shower 🚿

I’d advice this than to missionary position or laying on the side which are also good but please have an extra sheet.
An extra sheet that will help prevent the main bedsheets from getting stained. LADIES should also learn to use a mentrual cup – yeah it helps. And the gents involved have to wear condoms because trust me, the risk for STI is there and emmm you don’t want to get her pregnant.
Prevent infection and pregnancy and try as much as you can to keep it tidy, hence the shower is a good place under running water… You know I don’t know anything right? So please don’t take this personal. It’s all about facts in science.
Some ladies get extra horny during their period actually.
Some actually have sex during their periods… It makes them feel better.
So many persons have been asking if sex was safe during menstrual period and I have finally answered it” he said.
What did I just read? The person having the cramps sef might be finding it difficult to even stand talk less of all that mess. Abeg it will not kill the man to go without sex for 5days mbok.

Who cares? Nature made it that way. We all need a break. 4 days is not long. We will start after that. Life is not about sex. There is more to a woman than sex. It is when she is mensurating that you will see that. For the blood sex, that is nil for me and many men
NB: the shower water will reduce/wash away the lubricant in the CD plus the heat generated and water contact on the condom during the sex under shower will tear the CD though “I will not” recommend this option.
How about calm down till her period is over???? Shey you will die na.

Doc, some women with irregular cycle experience ovulation almost simultaneously with menstruation. This means for them to get pregnant through sex, the act needs to take place at about that period. Am I right?

I’m not understanding oooo. So I don’t have a right or choice to my body whether I’m on my period or not??? So if I’m not in the mood to have sex with my partner even when I’m on my period and I tell him NO, that’s me starving him MY OWN BODY. It’s really a crime being a woman.

“Try not to starve your partner”… anu mpama. Did you ask if the woman wants sex during her period?, no? All you think about is yourself. And who the hell told you that sex on your period shortens the period. “It’s all science”
