Hi,

Yes she is having her period regularly, but the time between period to period is closer to the 35 days (where I know usually its 28-35). I don't know when the safe period is. Could you please explain?

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
calculate as explained

Detailed Answer:
Safe period is 7 days before and 7 days after the expected first date of menstrual period.
The ovulation occurs around 14 days prior to the expected date.
In your case 35 - 14 = 21 .
Means 21 days after her previous date, which was 8 XXXXXXX
So that she would have her ovulation on 29 th XXXXXXX Calculate 4 days + and - is
25 th XXXXXXX to 2 July is totally ''unsafe period''.
With a calculation of 35 days period, she is expected to have period on 13 July.

I hope you have understood this and if there is still some doubts , please feel free to ask further.
Is your girlfriend sure about the dates and duration. Otherwise there can be surprises, albeit very rarely.
