Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

Menstrual blood can transmit STDs and HIV, exposing the partner to greater risk. Also, many women with Herpes experience flare-ups during menstruation, making themselves more vulnerable to HIV or other STD infection through open sores and their partner more vulnerable to Herpes.

If you have no history of STD in both partners then it's safe to have unprotected sex during period.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
Waiting for your response.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
