  • Leviticus 15:19 says, “When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening.” Similarly, Leviticus 15:24 says. “If a man lies with her and her monthly flow touches him, he will be unclean for seven days; any bed he lies on will be unclean.” Finally, Leviticus 20:18 declares, “If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period and has sexual relations with her, he has exposed the source of her flow, and she has also uncovered it. Both of them must be cut off from their people.” As a result of these Scriptures, some hold that a married couple should not have sex while the wife is having her period.

    The problem with this view is that if the Scriptures are applied consistently, even touching a woman who is having her menstrual flow would be forbidden. Further, according to Leviticus 15:20-23, even touching something that the woman has also touched would be forbidden. Do these laws apply to us today? No, they do not. Why? It is important to remember the purpose of the Old Testament laws concerning blood. In the sacrificial system, blood was sacred (Leviticus 17:11). A woman’s “uncleanness” during her period was symbolic of the value placed on blood. As a result, contact with a woman who was having her period was forbidden.

    Christians today are not under the Old Testament ceremonial law (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:24-26; Ephesians 2:15). There no longer is a sacrificial system. Jesus’ blood sacrifice paid the penalty for sins once and for all. The Levitical ceremonial laws do not apply today. There is no biblical reason why a married couple cannot have sex during the wife’s period. Some doctors do not recommend it from a medical perspective, but there are no proven “dangers” of having sexual intercourse during a woman’s period. Usually women have no desire to have sexual relations during their period, so that is definitely another thing to consider. Basically, this issue must be decided by a husband and wife in the spirit of “mutual consent” as 1 Corinthians 7:5 describes.

  • SYMPTOMS?????? R YOU FLICKING KIDDING ME WE AINT SICK. >:( Dis just the price we have to pay so we wouldn’t bring more idiots to this world. Worths the sacrifice

  • I suffer from extremely painful periods and unfortunately have NSAIDS hypersensitivity…so i have to bear the pain… is it okay to take oral steroids as an alternative pain reliever?

    Ummed nahi thi muja 1% be But acha results mila

  • Kratom is effective for the pain as well and I find it better than NASIDS. I stopped taking NASIDS all together and opted to not do the surgery. I also suspect in my case fungal overgrowth may be a contributing factor which may be causing many disruptions in the whole region, I also get UTIs, have IBS, stomach issues.

  • I’ve been suffering extremely bad periods for over 10 years, but with no diagnosis and all scans and even the keyhole investigation showed nothing! I get all the worst bad symptoms each month and I’ve still found no relief. It’s torture. I am based in the UK. I have tried various medications to no success. At the moment I am on mefenamic acid but found no success or proper cure yet. I am too scared to go to GP anymore. I am made to feel like I am wasting their time. It takes out so many days mensing lost jobs, missed classes and total failure in all my endeavours as I’ve never been able to attend anything regularly yet. I do exercise and I have a very balanced, rich, conscientious diet. I am very depressed today about all these years wasted away suffering for nothing. Other than just putting up with the unbearable and indescribable agony, what can I practically do right now to better my future health and live a comfortable life? Thank in advance.

  • Anyone also suffer with really greasy skin, hair and constant sweating on periods? I have to have about 2 to 3 showers a day on my periods just so greasy and sweaty

  • Its the modern food we eat causing very painful periods. Many of these foods like lunch meat seem to have strange hormones attached to them. Few women stop eating these foods so they don’t have heavey periods and things get better. Men can’t usually discern between these accursed foods and meats and pretty much eat any hormone laden meat. Why more men commit suicide perhaps and have unnatural aggression where they commit cruel murders. Don’t eat whatever is set before you, discern wisely and stop with gluttony.

  • Those who don’t feel much during their first day is sooooooo lucky!!! I used to always end up vomiting and get extremely dizzy. Even drinking water and taking some kind of pill always made me nauseous (vomited the pills back up). My body felt like it was on fire but freezing and like those days were horrible. My doctor eventually put me on bc and cramps are tolerable but back pain and nausea is still present. To sum up everything… periods suck ��

  • Can anyone help me out? In around October of 2018 I got my first period and it was pretty heavy. The next month all the way until now (feb) it’s been EXTREMELY light. (Like I don’t even have to wear pads because nothing comes tf out. Is this normal???? I have barley nothing coming out and the only reason I know is because there is a little bit of blood sometimes when I pee. Help!!!

  • My baby period start 9+ or 10 age 1 month ago. it is a problem or well.pls rely and solution. But the period of all girls is 11 years

  • Yasmin boro, when u gt ur white discharge, according to that, the period can occur.u r female or male?pls tell, how many years old r u???

  • really? Because when I was in high school from Freshmen to Senior year that those whose Menstrual Cycle has started occurs at the age of 12 and so on.

  • 34 still with painful periods I’ve had since I was 12. Could the continued pain be due to not having kids? The pain is overwhelming the first day. I am lucky that advil does take a bit of the pain away and taking it a few days before really can help!

  • I normally take ibuprofen and it helps all the time with my cramp pains however it hasn’t been so I took a 800mg Motrin (Normally would work) however this time it has NOT. I’m dying like crazy. These pains are too much �� I’m 20 and it’s only getting worse as I get older.

  • I’m so relieved in a way by these comments! I thought something was seriously wrong with me and I was the only one! My periods are so painful and I can’t take anti inflammatory pills because I’m asthmatic �� normal pain killers like paracetamol don’t even touch it and Codeine based pain killers make me feel so sick, I get heavy bleeding but not all the time, I get pain in my hip, back, groin and thigh before my periods arrives and once it does the pain is unbearable and no one understands they just compare it to their menstrual cycle ��

  • I used to never get period pains, EVER. Just like the video said, I was on NSAIDs for my really long, heavy periods, but then I got put on birth control. Ever since birth control, which I’ve since stopped taking, the pain has been UNBEARABLE! I’ve fainted and vomited from the pain. I’m tired of being told this is normal. Is it really? I mean, my mum had a similar problem to me, she was even told she was pregnant at one point, and the whole time she had a fibroid that posed a huge threat to her life… I don’t want endometriosis at all, but I need a way to cope with the pain because I can’t put my life on hold for 10 days every single month…

  • I have 3 problems like these
    My stomach hurts all the time I can’t even walk probably, have very heavily bleeding in period time! It goes all over my legs!! I need to change my clothes after an hour!! I want to do workout!! But never can because I feel pain over there!!
    I have went to so many doctors!!
    They said it’s need operation so without operation maybe it will not be fine!!
    My life is like hell ( ・ั﹏・ั)

  • it makes me so shaky and im crying right now…it feels like a blender is ripping up my insides my stomach burns so much and its not just on the first day..its everyday until it goes away i cry evevryday because it hurts so bad all the time and i have 8 or more days everytime,,im in my 4th day and it still hurts so bad and i barely can breath it hurts. i can barely get up thats how bad it hurts and i dont have a doctor for this and my mom doesnt even know bc im scared of telling anyone..i dont have anything at home and i suffer every month every 8 or more days…

  • Thought I was the only one who experienced, extreme PMS, excruciating pain, nausea and numbing pain in the thighs…I assumed it must mean there may be infertility issues but most of the research claims that those symptoms dont necessarily equal infertility.

  • Can someone help give me an idea of when mine will start? I can tell you my symptoms, and how long I’ve had them. I will explain the best I can. Thanks in advance!
