can we have unprotected sex

Response from Dr. Dieterich

I can't give you an absolute answer to that, you have to make your own decisions. However, the CDC recommends that people not change their sexual practices if they are heterosexual monogamous couples. Sharing razors and toothbrushes is probably more risky behaviour than heterosexual sex. Certainly you should avoid sex during menstruation. The rest is up to you. Good luck! DTD
