Is there a safe period when you can have sex with your male/female partner and still avoid pregnancy? There is no 100% fool proof method to avoid pregnancy without any contraceptive or a barrier but you can increase the odds of avoiding pregnancy if you know a little bit about a woman’s reproductive system and menstrual cycle.

Medical abortion (Medical Termination of Pregnancy, done during the first trimester)
Vacuum aspiration (Done during the first trimester)
