Monthly Period: Use This Method To Calculate Safe Days If You Want To Avoid Unwanted Pregnancy

A woman can't get pregnant until her egg is fertilized after she ovulates. During ovulation, a female lets go of a fully grown egg from her ovary. It has a cycle that lasts between 12 and 14 days. The most important thing to remember is that a male cell will stay in the uterus for 5 to 7 days after a couple has made love. Because it's easier to get pregnant during the first few days of a short menstrual cycle, women with shorter periods should be extra careful.

If you know when you'll ovulate, you can take steps to avoid getting pregnant when you don't want to. By looking at the mucus in the cervix, ovulation can be predicted. During ovulation, the mucus in the cervix thickens, gets slimy, and turns clear. When you ovulate, your body temperature goes up. You can also use kits that measure luteinizing hormone levels to figure out when you will ovulate. One to two days before ovulation, the level of luteinizing hormone goes up.

You can use this simple formula to figure out how many days are safe for you.

Keep track of the shortest and longest times for about a year. The full cycle starts on the first day of bleeding and ends on the first day of bleeding of the next cycle. Keep track of how many full cycles you did to figure out which ones were the shortest and longest.

2. Take 18 days away from the day that was the shortest in the list above. If your shortest cycle was 24, taking 18 away would leave you with 6. Write this number down.

4. Take away 11 days from the largest number of days given in step one. If your period is 35 days long, take 11 days away to get 24. Pay attention to this number as well.

5. The days you wrote down in 2 and 3 are your fertile days. In my case, the fertile days are between days 6 and 24. I don't do sexual things that don't keep me safe anymore. Another way to avoid getting pregnant is to use condoms and other forms of birth control.
