How To Know Girl's 'Safe Days' Other Than Using Medication To Prevent Pregnancy

Girl's menstrual cycle is important especially to monitor on their progress of their health including their fertility.

Getting pregnant just after your period is unlikely, but it’s not impossible. However, the chances of getting pregnant are low right after the periods compared to a few days or a week in the menstrual cycle.

Calculating your safe days is no less than a prediction game. However, it acts as a boon to help you understand your cycle well, along with the most suitable days to have unprotected sex without fear of getting pregnant.

The ideal way to calculate safe days is by calculating the length of the menstrual cycle and maintaining a period calendar.

The length of the period cycle is calculated from the beginning of the menstrual period as day one until day 1 of the next menstrual period.

Safe days is also an effective birth control method that may be used instead of medications.

Considering a menstrual cycle, the first week after period onset is usually safe. The eggs are not released, and ovaries are still in the process of forming eggs within them.

The last week before your next period cycle is also considered to be safe. The process or phase of ovulation has passed away, and a comparatively lesser chance for fertilisation to occur.

These calculations of safe days are ideal for women who have a regular menstrual cycle of 28-32 days.

If the menstrual cycle is short, for example, 22 days, then women could ovulate just days after the period. The longest that sperm can survive in fertile cervical mucus is 5-7 days. So, it may just be possible for women to get pregnant if they ovulate a little earlier than usual.

A woman may also get pregnant just after a period if she has an irregular cycle.

Fertility may rise and fall across a person’s menstrual cycle. It increases around the time of ovulation.

People who wish to reduce their likelihood of becoming pregnant may wish to use FAMs to track their fertility and schedule sex.

For FAMs to be effective, it is essential for a person to track several months of fertility signals to chart high fertility and low fertility days. However, this is still not the most reliable method of contraception.
