    Safe period is the period in which a woman has the least chance of getting pregnant.
    A monthly cycle has two components:
    Proliferating phase - this is the period which begins soon after the menstrual bleeding starts.
    Secretory phase - this is a constant period of 14 days, which you can count as 14 days before you get your periods.
    A woman conceives if she copulates within the time of ovulation. Hence the time of ovulation is termed as the unsafe period to have sexual intercourse.
    To calculate ovulation period :-
    For example a woman has a cycle length of 30 days, the ovulation period roughly falls in the mid 10 days.
    So, to avoid pregnancy she has to better avoid unprotected sexual intercourse in this period.
    The rest of the days i.e., starting from menstruation to the 10th day and again from 21st day up to menstruation are the safe days or the safe period to avoid pregnancy.
    But natural methods of contraception always have a high failure rate.
