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.

My wife is 73 and has dementia and I am applying the estrace crème every day at the request of the GYN for vaginal atrophy and constant burning during and after urinating. Her behavior changes and she becomes more aggressive so I have lessened application to every other day. We go back to the GYN on Monday. Any suggestions as to how to proceed. The DR has tested for various STDs which turned up negative.

im 18 years old, 5'7", 156 pounds, i had unprotected sex with a woman and got staph aureus. i went to a private clinic that isnt very expensive because i dont have a medical insurance. i have no clinical record, allergies or anything, im an athlete for my college. in the clinic i got laboratories for STDS for about $500, and the results showed staph aureus. ive been taking ciprofloxacinfor more than 3 weeks, and the doctor from the clinic isnt an specialist so he doesnt really know whats going on and what to really do. the infection should be out of my body already, but today in the morning i noticed that the head of my penis is wrinkled as when u're in the pool for too long and you finger tips get wrinkled, also, it has a kind of discoloration, and well the color of it isnt the same as before, its red as if it was irritated. what does all this mean, in what stage of the infection am i in or what is going on?

Four years ago I had protected sex with a woman (I am male) and 3 days later had a terrible burning sensation on my penis and testicles. No rash or discharge, just terrible skin burning. Since then, it has come and gone, but always been slightly present. Sometimes, however, it becomes intolerable. I have been tested for all STDs several times, prostatitis and herpes four times - always with negative results. In fact, the most recent herpes blood test was done in December 2010, with negative results for both HSV1 and HSV2. I have also visited a urologist who did no tests and told me it was probably not a urology problem. A neurologist did some minor tests but found nothing. There are no marks, no lesions, no spots, no discharge, no bumps or anything other than an incredibly painful penis and testicles. Occasionally it "feels" like there are cuts or tears, but there has never actually been any. Sometimes, when I am standing it feels a little less painful. When I am sitting, the burning can also be felt in the thighs. Do you have ANY idea what this might be or what I could try to alleviate it? It has been many years and I am at my wits end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
