Allah has forbidden men to have intercourse with their wives in the vagina at the time of menstruation.
“They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses” The Holy Quran

The Muslim must also obey the command of Allah, for He is the Creator and ...https://islamqa.info/en/43028

The above verse is from Khan-Hilali, note,

2:222. [Pickthall] They [Muslims] question thee (O Muhammad) concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness, so let women alone at such time and go not in unto them till they are cleansed.
And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loveth those [Muslims] who turn unto Him, and loveth those [Muslims] who have a care for cleanness.


Pickthall and some interpret [adha, atha] as "illness," "ailment", other translators termed it as 'impurity' 'hurt' pollution, and other negative labels.


Whatever the term used, the sense of aversion against menstruation as portrayed in 2:222 is based on ignorance of the Arabs during the 7th century. Since Allah is all-knowing, Allah should have known the real biological fact of menstruation.
This infer the Quran is not authored by Allah-the all knowing but by Muhammad or a group of men.
This idea in 2:222 is most like to be plagiarized from Leviticus 15:19.
Leviticus 15:19 "'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.


Health wise in our modern era, note the fact;
It’s time to dump the idea that menstruation is dirty.
It’s blood and tissue that you ended up not using to feed a baby, and that’s all.
Menstruation is just blood and tissue you ended up not using - Scientific American Blog Network
So Allah [& others on this similar issue] has been giving believers false information [lies] about human biology.


Worse, because it is stated by Allah who carry the highest authority, such a taboo has created very unjustified and unnecessary antagonism [misogynistic tendencies] against the female sex by the male.


The fact is, there is no harm nor it is unhealthy in having sex during menstruation. The ruling, warning and fears as portrayed by Allah in the Quran are misguided and unwarranted. Btw, I am not implying it is recommended but to each their own.


Note the case of Muhammad [the exemplar] and his involvement with menstruation in the Ahadiths.
Juju is very familiar with this point and explains it very well.
