Is there a safe period when it comes to sex? We get a question regarding this long-established legend, which Manraj answers in his usual honest and straight forward style.
Sex during the safe period
In our new series, “The Naked Truth”, Manraj gives honest answers to sex and health related queries.
Q. A viewer from Gurgaon tried to convince his girlfriend to have sex without a condom, during her ‘safe period’. Is sex during this time truly fool-proof?
A. OK guys, the fact of the matter that if it’s something ‘fool-proof’ you’re looking for, your only true option is abstinence. That means not having sex at all.
The so-called safe period certainly reduces the odds of getting pregnant, but even that is not 100% and many young couples have got a nasty surprise with an unwanted pregnancy because they had unprotected sex during the safe period. Furthermore, unprotected sex during the safe period provides absolutely no protection from STIs like HIV/AIDS, gonorrhoea etca. So remember to use protection whenever you have sex, safe-period or not.
