The Laws of Niddah
How to count days and prepare for the mikveh according to traditional halakhah.
Behavior While Not a Niddah
When a woman is not a niddah, Jewish tradition encourages sexual relations and all other physical contact between a married couple. The couple is especially encouraged to have sex the night the woman returns from the mikveh, and on Friday nights. The only times sex is forbidden are on Yom Kippur, Tisha B'Av, during shiva, and on the days on which the woman anticipates her period's return.
