Doctor :   please describe your problem in detail.
User :   can u let me know , when can i have de unprotected sex
Doctor :   when was your last menstrual period?
User :   29th last month

User :   28
Doctor :   are you regular with your periods? or are they irregular?
User :   regular
User :   but with 2 or 3 days diff, due 2 climate change
Doctor :   for a 28 day period, your ovulation time (time of egg release from ovary) will be between day 8-16 of the cycle, takin day 1 as the first day of bleeding
User :   k
Doctor :   so having intercourse btween day 7-18 will be fruitful
Doctor :   and pregnancy can result if you are ovulating and your partner is with normal quality and quantity of sperms
User :   i dona wana get pregnant now
Doctor :   ok. if you do not want to be pregnant now, then consult your gynecologist/doctor and get examined to decide which birth control is best suited for you
Doctor :   and get started on it to avoid pregnancy
User :   m male 26
User :   m wife 24
Doctor :   ok, in that case get your wife to her gynecologist/doctor and get examined to decide which birth control is best suited for her
Doctor :   let her start on it to avoid getting pregnant
User :   k, i heard dat after 21 days, it is safe 2 have unprootected sex
Doctor :   the 'safe period' and 'withdrawal method' of contraception have the highest failure rates associated
Doctor :   she can get pregnant anytime
Doctor :   if her ovulation date varies or pre-cum enters
User :   a week b4 de periods
Doctor :   yes, i understand, what you are explaining is called as 'safe period' method of contraception to avoid pregnancy
User :   k
Doctor :   and as I told earlier it has one of the highest failure rates associated
Doctor :   so there is risk of getting pregnant with following this method
Doctor :   to be completely relaxed about pregnancy it is better to get started on any of teh birth control measures which vary from pills to patch, depo shots, imp-lants, IUD
Doctor :   she needs to be examined by her gynecologist to see which one would be best for her
Doctor :   *implants
User :   if she bleeds on 1st, i mean de first day bleedin, normaly bleeds for 5 days.....
Doctor :   ok
User :   so the day 6 n 7 is it safe,
Doctor :   no it is not safe since she can ovulate anytime after day 6 of her bleeding and if any intercourse happens at that time it can result in pregnancy
User :   from the hospital i came 2 know dat, egg start breakin aftr 21 days......n it is safe 2 have unprotected on dat period
Doctor :   as sperms are known to be alive withing female genital tract for about 48 hours
User :   oh k
User :   ya
User :   i got
Doctor :   she can have her egg release anytime after day 6 to day 16 or 18

Doctor :   hence it is not a safe method to follow
Doctor :   *stressed
User :   k, 3 to 4 days b4 periods

Doctor :   is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   ya
User :   is der any time 2 concieve a boy
User :   i read a article in de net
User :   an
Doctor :   it is all myths, the gender of the baby depends on the type of sperm fertilizing the egg
Doctor :   however due to the speed of travel of sperms , it is believed that male sperms travel faster
User :   k
Doctor :   and hence if fertilization occurs in the early part of ovulation period, boy babies are concieved
User :   is der any specific time or period, whr der is more chance 2 concieve a boy
Doctor :   if the conception happens in latter part of the ovulation cycle, or delayed, then girl babies are concieved
Doctor :   these are only beleifs, there is no clinical data to prove this
Doctor :   so do not believe in this
User :   do u say dat, der is no such things lyk dat
Doctor :   yes.
User :   it depends on x or y
Doctor :   medically there is no data to prove that this is right
User :   is precum is enough 2 get pregnant
Doctor :   yes it purely depends on the 'x' or 'y' containing sperms fertilizing the egg
Doctor :   yes pre-cum is known to contain sperms, and can result in pregnancy if egg is present at that time
