DEFINING SAFE PERIOD
Safe period is defined as the portion of the menstrual cycle of the human female during which conception is least likely to occur and which usually includes several days immediately before and after the menstrual period and the period itself.
The best method is the CALENDAR METHOD. Which is you knowing how to keep track of your fertile and infertile window.
These are examples 👇👇
HOW DO I USE THE CALENDAR METHOD?
Before you can use the calendar method as birth control, you need to keep track of the length of your menstrual cycles for at least 6 periods.
Here’s how you do it: Mark the first day of your period (this is day 1).
Then mark the first day of your next period. Count the total number of days between each cycle (the number of days between the first days of each period).
You must chart at least 6 cycles, but charting a few more months is even better.
Here’s an example: Down pointing backhand index
If all of your cycles are shorter than 27 days, the calendar method won’t be accurate for you.
P.S: USING BIRTH CONTROL PILLS, AND CONDOMS, IS ALWAYS THE SAFEST WAY TO PREVENT PREGNANCY.
THE SAFE DAYS TO HAVE SEX WHEN USING THE CALENDAR METHOD!!
To predict the first fertile day (when u can get pregnant) in your current cycle:
• Find the shortest cycle in your past record.
• Subtract 18 from the total number of days in that cycle.
• Count that number from day 1 of your current cycle, and mark that day with an X. (Include day 1 when you count.)
• The day marked X is your first fertile day.
For example: if your shortest cycle is 26 days long, subtract 18 from 26 — you get 8.👇👇

So the 11th is your first fertile day of this cycle — you should stop having sex on this day or start using another method of birth controlFace with look of triumph
TO PREDICT THE LAST FERTILE DAY IN YOUR CURRENT CYCLE:
• Find the longest cycle in your record.
• Subtract 11 from the total number of days in that cycle.
• Count that number from day 1 (the first day of your period) of your current cycle, n mark that day with an X.
(Include day 1 when you count.)
• The day marked X is your last fertile day.
For example, if your longest cycle is 30 days long, subtract 11 from 30 — you get 19. Then, count 19 days starting from day 1. If day 1 was on the 4th of the month, you’ll mark X on the 22nd.
So the 22nd is your last fertile day of this cycle — you can start having unprotected sex the next dayFace savouring foodWeary face
The calendar method can only predict what are most likely to be safe and unsafe days — it can’t tell you for sure exactly when you’re fertile.
So it is most effective when you combine it with other fertility awareness methods!
