Quran’s rule on menstruation and sex

When a women is on her period and is sexually active it is scientifically proven that chances of acquiring or transmitting seually transmiited diseases increases greatly.HIV, Gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, bacterial vaginosis etc.,to name a few.

Blocked tubes is only one after effect thus reducing fertility,or rendering the female sterile for life. Recurrent attacks of pelvic infection can lead to chronic pelvic pain which is secondary to multiple adhesions-scarring between the reproductive organs and the whole of the lower abdomen and pelvis.This is very debilitating and usually lasts a lifetime.The male also can get infected much more easily and have to suffer the consequences as well.When God says something, He means it.

Editor's report:

In a health letter on September 25, 1995, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that avoiding sex that causes bleeding, or takes place while a woman is menstruating, cuts the risk of HIV infection. This CDC report was presented at the 11th meeting of the International Society for Sexually Transmitted Disease Research, which was held in New Orleans, Louisiana from August 27-30 in 1995. The CDC's letter focused on a case controlled analysis conducted by W.J. Kassler, in which 95 HIVcases of HIV transmission were closely studied. Kassler and his colleagues found that bleeding during sex accounted for 11% of the cases, and concluded that this type of transmission was a risk for both men, with a ratio of 8;1, and women, with a ratio of 4;1. Kassler also found that for women, having sex during menses, which accounted for 20% of the cases studied, was associated with a six-fold risk of transmission (6;1).
