What Vedas say about periods

According to Krishna Yajurveda, Indra incurred the sin of brahmahatya when he killed Trishiras. He divided the sin into three parts and gave them to the earth, trees, and women to get relief. In return, women received the boon of not incurring any sin by being physically intimate with their husbands only for pleasure. Until then, physical relationship was permitted only for procreation. The sin of Indra would exist in the bodies of women during their periods. They will have brilliant children if they observe certain rules during periods.
