It is never really "safe" to have intercourse without contraception if you do not want to get pregnant because it is possible to conceive at any time during your monthly cycle - even during menstruation.

Some days can be more "safe" than others but without knowing your own particular cycle, such as when you normally ovulate, you cannot know which the safer days are so, to be really "safe", you should always use contraception whatever the day.

No, how do you know when your period is going to start?

Do the intercourse in the safe period. It normally starts from 5 days before the cycle and 10 days after the menstrual cycle.

If you want to avoid pregnancy, then you need to know when you ovulate to know when the 'safe' days are. But typically, 12 days before your period would not be safe, as the luteal phase (the time after you ovulate until your period begins) is 10 to 14 (or more) days long, for a normal cycle. Thus, 12 days may put you in your most fertile period.

Yes. Perfectly. However, if you wanted to avoid pregnancy, then you MUST use contraception. As you can get pregnant at any point during intercourse. Whether you are on your period or not.

It is possible to get pregnant at any time. 9 days before your period, you are very fertile. Make sure you use protection unless you are trying to get pregnant
