Well. 6-8 days before your period is when you are MOST likely to become pregnant. But there is still no COMPLETLY safe day. Between the 6-8 days after your menstrual cycle and 6-8 days before would probably be the safest give or take 48 hours.

I had un protected sex on the 14th day after my period. My period comes every 32 days. I was wondering if my ovulation time is different or is it still most fertile on the 24th day?

willywombat agony auntLike I said before the only completely 'safest' method is not to bother. There is no 'safe' period unless you ahve no problems with getting caught out!

6th year med student,

Doesnt this assume that ovulation occurs at a set and regular interval from the period days? Not a safe assumption in what I have seen.

I think it would be better it use some sort of affirmative indicator of ovulation, like basal body tempature or mucus. It would probably be good inforamtion for any woman to be aware of, regardless of if she planned on using it to control pregnancy.

Hello there,

Well I am a 6th year medical student so I hope I can be of some help here.

Well the safe days I think are the farthest possible from ovulation days which are probably between the 13th and 16th days from your first day of period in a 28 day cycle.

usually the 14th day).

If ur period cycle is longer than 28 days or less (example 32) just substract it from 14 (32 - 14 = 18) so ur period is probably on the day 18th. Of course use a +/- 48 hours just to be safe.

Well in my opinion the safest days possible are those when you directly finish from ur menstruation or waiting for it.

Anyway, if u don't have a regular menstruation I wouldn't advice this method.

willywombat agony auntAs said before the only completely fool proof method of not getting pregnent is to not have sex. failing that, using a relaible barrier method of contraception such as the condom or cap, or chemical methods such as the pill or depo injections, patch or the IUD. Trying to use the rythym method is actually the worst thing you can do unless at some point it really doesn't matter too much that you get pregnant.

Ok, lecture over. Point I am making is there is no such thing as completely 'safe' days in the menstrual cycle.

None!!

There are high risk days and low risk days, but nothing is certain. Don't have unprotected sex unless you're trying to get pregnant, I have a friend who got pregnant on her period and I was conceived a month after my sister was born, which apparently is impossible.

Just go to your family doctor to address this medical concern.

He/she is best qualified to help you be it teach you how to use birth control methods effectively and responsibly or have testing done.

Most doctor's these days; as a fail safe will perscibe the morning after pill.

To prevent monthly occurances of what if I am pregnant? and all the drama...talk to him about interuterine (hate these btw) or getting the needle every few months to the ones where they are inserted under your skin.

The Family Doctor will be most able to determine with your lifestyle and approach to birth control on what will be better suited for you to use.

Take care and have a Happy and Safe New Years.
