Is there a safe time of the month to have sex and not get pregnant?

There are days during the month when pregnancy is highly likely, and days when it’s less likely. Sperm can survive in the female reproductive system for five to seven days, and the egg is viable (able to be fertilized) for three days. If the two overlap, pregnancy is possible. It’s really hard to figure out when those days are. This is because the three days the egg is viable can happen at different times each month.

Remember that pregnancy isn’t the only thing to consider. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can be transmitted during sex, and condoms are the only barrier against them. If you use condoms and a hormonal contraceptive method, like the Pill, every single time you have sex, you’ll be protected against pregnancy and STDs every time.
