Does "The Flux" provide a little protection against AIDS/STD?
Oct 7, 1997
During the heavy days of a woman's menstrual flow, is she any less likely to contract an STD from an infected partner? (I'm not asking whether she is 100% safe--only whether she is ANY safer.)
Response from Mr. Sowadsky
Hi. Thank you for your question. Whether a woman is having her menstrual period or not, if she is having unprotected sex with an infected person, she would be at high risk of infection. Her menstrual period would not have any significant effect at reducing her chances of infection with HIV, nor other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's).
If you have any further questions, please feel free to e-mail me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" or call me at 1-800-842-AIDS (Nationwide). I'm glad to help!
