Birth control. : Jose - ovulation is usually mid cycle - having said that, I have seen all too many unexpected pregnancies when people use timing (rhythm) to "guess" the cycles. All bets are off. Even oral contraceptives are not 100%. If you don't want your GF to get pregnant, practice contraception.
