Sex during Safe Period

Hi,
I need to know if my wife can be conceived if we have sex during the safe period. That means we have sex on the 5th day of 1st day period? Ejaculation during intercourse and withdrawal make any difference? Thanks in advance

Re: Sex during Safe Period

A woman can get pregnant at any point during her cycle. There is no safe time frame. In addition, ejaculation obviously increases the chances tremendously, but the withdrawl method also carries a pregnancy risk.

Re: Sex during Safe Period

Well, your wife certainly can't be conceived at this point (that happened a long long time ago ) but as for the risk of her conceiving if you have sex during her period, that is probably the time with lower risk, first day haivng the lowest risk.

As for the statement "a woman can get pregnant at any point during her cycle", that's not technically correct. A woman can only get pregnant around the time she is ovulating, and if she has a regular cycle, that is not going to be around the time she menstruates.

As for withdrawing, yes that helps, but it's not guaranteed. Both these methods (withdrawal and rhythm) are very risky.

I bolded the important part. It's hard to predict always having a regular cycle. What if she unknowingly ovulates twice in a month? What if her cycle is unknowingly off? It's always best to be safe rather than sorry.
