Immediately after the menstrual period, how long is it safe to have unprotected sex?

Immediately after the menstrual period, how long is it safe to have unprotected sex?

Never!: Although it may take a few days for ovulation to occur after a period, there really isn't a "safe" period of time for unprotected sex. If not pregnancy, then std's are always possible. Fraternal twins are an example of two separate eggs occurring in the same cycle at different times with subsequent fertilization. ...Read more

I have a irregular menstrual period, it takes 8days of bleeding.Is it safe to have a sex intercourse from my partner right after my period?

I have a irregular menstrual period, it takes 8days of bleeding.Is it safe to have a sex intercourse from my partner right after my period?

No: There are relatively safe times of the month only when a woman has regular periods. With irregular periods, you never know when ovulation might occur, so there is no very safe time. However, with irregular periods, you probably aren't ovulating very often, so you may be less likely to get pregnant. But if you wish to be safe, better use something, such as condoms. ...Read more

Are there any pills that are safe to take while breastfeeding that could delay my menstrual period for a few days or a week? It'd really help, thanks!

Yes, oral progrstins: First, breast-feeding is a great decision. Breast-feeding alone can give you reduced or absent cycles. There is a specific type of birth control pill call progestin only pills. These are safe to take while breast-feeding and can also help prevent a menstrual cycle. Additionally, oral Provera taken twice a day for 10 days can also prevent a cycle. These are medications perscibed by a doctor. ...Read more
