In brief: Depends
When you say safe are you referrring to getting pregnant? If so then it is very unlikely you will get pregnant while on your period.
Often people mistake other vaginal bleeding episodes for their actual period. If you do not want to be pregnant you should be on birth control and using condoms. Stds can be passed at anytime if sex is unprotected.
