Video: ❶ There Are No “safe” Days?
Not all women can take oral contraceptives due to a number of contraindications, the same is the case with intrauterine devices, and men do not always agree to protect themselves with condoms. Usually, a calendar way to prevent conception and counting "safe" days for unprotected sex comes to mind. Are they as safe as they seem? The question is difficult, but there is an unequivocal answer to it. Location: Location:
Throughout the entire menstrual cycle, a woman's body, one way or another, is ready for the birth of a new life. Conception often occurs in the middle of the cycle, when ovulation occurs. About 11-14 days of the cycle is the most favorable time. It is on these days that the chance of getting pregnant increases significantly. If your cycle is longer than 28 days, then subtract 14 days from the estimated date of your monthly period, this will be the time of ovulation of the egg. This period can be considered "dangerous".
The chances of getting pregnant are less before 10 days of the cycle and after 15, but even here everything is purely individual. Sometimes ovulation occurs a little later, and, accordingly, the risk of conception increases. You should also pay attention to the possibility of "failure" in the body. For example, if you catch a cold, then the egg may mature a little later, for this reason, the day of ovulation will be slightly postponed.
Do not forget that sperm can live in a woman's body for up to several weeks, wandering around the vagina, uterine cavity and tubes. Particularly strong specimens can wait for the egg to mature and fertilize it, even if the last time you had sexual intercourse after your period.
Based on all of the above, one can understand with certainty that there are no "safe" days. Of course, the chances of getting pregnant at the beginning and at the end of the menstrual cycle are much less, but you still do not need to hope and use the calendar method of protection, especially if you are not ready for the birth of a baby. The calendar method was created more for calculating ovulation and planning pregnancy, rather than protecting against it. If you just want to postpone the day when you see two red stripes on a pregnancy test, but in principle are ready to become a mother, then you can safely use this method of calculating "safe" days. But be prepared for anything and don't be surprised if you suddenly feel a little sick and nauseous.
