In brief: Yes
There is no time of your cycle it is overall 'safer' to have sex.
If you are referring to the chances of becoming pregnant, you are the most likely to become pregnant about two weeks after the start of your period. There is no guarantee that having sex right around your period will prevent pregnancy, however. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, discuss birth control options with your physician.
