Is there a time in relation to your menstrual cycle when you can have unprotected sex without the possibility of getting pregnant?

I heard that there's a time of the month where a woman can't get pregnant depending on when she has her period. I'm not sure when this is though. Help?

Technically there are only about 3-4 days a month when you can get pregnant.. however the timing on this varies and the only way to know for sure is to use an ovulation predictor test. (kind of a lot to go through just to have unprotected sex) And this doesn't mean you can't get an STD or some other infection.. just use protection, it is safer and more reliable. If you are set on having intercourse, you can get condoms FREE from any Planned Parenthood office, no questions asked.

I know that my boyfriend doesn't have any STD's or STI's. I'm not worried about that. But he has to buy condoms fairly often and it's costing a quite a bit of money. :P I'll see if I can find any offices like that around here.

Yeah try to do that because I pretty much guarantee that doing ovulation tests is going to cost more than even the condoms. if you don't have a Planned Parenthood check with your County Health Dept. It may depend on where you live, some states don't allow minors to get condoms :/ but all you have to do is call and ask. You can find Planned Parenthood locations in your area by going to Google and typing in Planned Parenthood and your city name :)

DO NOT have sex 14 days before or after your period because that is the best time to get pregnant.

My period lasts about 9 days. It's torture. I don't trust that very much. I appreciate the demeanor though..

There is no such time positively because sperm live for a while, several days even. Human beings have evolved to reproduce, that's the purpose of sex. It's meant to result in a baby naturally. So it's best to use a condom or birth-control.

You never can be sure. There is always that chance that you will get pregnant.
