I got a phone call yesterday. It's been a while since I've talked or even texted with this certain friend of mine... And well, she got right to the point of her unexpected call...
Aling aling: I had unprotected sex. But it's like right after my period ended. Am I safe?
Me: Well... I'm not really sure... But based on experience, I didn't get pregnant yet so I'd say you're safe.
Aling aling: Are you sure? It was unprotected sex.
Me: Yeah well I'm the Queen of unprotected sex so... Wait, who's the guy?
Aling aling: My boyfriend _____. You didn't know about him?
Me: Not really. LOL
Aling aling: Mao ka! Bitaw... This is driving me crazy.
Me: Okay, hang on. I'll ask some people who know for sure.
Aling aling: Okay thanks. I'll wait for your text mam ha.
Me: Relax... I'll let you know asap.
So... I thought I should just write down when the safe period really is once and for all.
During your period is the safest. Next safest is no more than 5 days after the end of your period with each day past the end of your period being more risky than the next. (this is according to wiki answers)
For those in a relationship, darlings it's time to get on the pill. If you don't want to be on the pill for whatever reasons, use a condom. Seriously, having protection, whatever your choice of protection may be is just a lot less hassle.
Sex is a choice, pregnancy should be too. So unless you're ready to be a mommy, BE PROTECTED. Trust me, you're saving yourself a whole lot of worrying and panic.
