Safe for what?: If you have regular cycles you are most likely to get pregnant around 14 days before your next period starts. If you have irregular cycles or spot between periods it can be very difficult to know when it's a "safe" time to have sex. Regardless of the time of the month, you can get sexually transmitted infections at any time.
