Hi Gauri,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.
There are several contraceptive methods which are available today. From what can be inferred, you are interested in the rhythm method of contraception. In this method, the woman is considered to be at low risk of conceiving during the 1st 8 days of the cycle and from day 20 to the day her menses begin. The 1st day of the period is considered to be the 1st day of the cycle. However, this method has a high failure rate which ranges from 13-20%.
"I Pill" contains levonorgestrel and is considered suitable only as an emergency contraceptive method. It is not supposed to be used as a regular contraceptive since it has several disadvantages. It makes the menstrual cycles irregular and also does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Additionally, the failure rate is approximately 4% which increases to 10% at 5 days. I would strongly recommend you to consult your physician and adopt a regular contraceptive method which has several advantages apart from just preventing pregnancy.
Take care

USUALLY IF THE LADY HAS REGULAR MENSTRUAL CYCLE FOR 28 OR 30 DAYS THEN PREGNANCY CAN OCCUR FROM 13-15 TH DAY OF CYCLE.COUNTING STARTS FROM 1 ST DAY OF MENSTRUAL CYCLE.BUT THERE IS NO SAFE PERIOD AS OVULATION IS SEEN IN MANY CASES TO TAKE PLACE ERRACTICALLY.IT IS BETTER TO USE A CONTRACEPTIVE.
