Keeping tabs on your ovulation cycle is a good method you can use to avoid becoming pregnant. Typically, a woman’s ovulation cycle will begin around the 14th day after her last menstrual period. When pregnancy is a possibility, you should limit your physical contact as much as possible.
When a woman is ovulating and she is physically close to a man, the likelihood of pregnancy is very high. Ovulation occurs once a month on average, so there are many more opportunities for lovemaking activity without the risk of becoming pregnant.
You can take your temperature before getting intimate with your man. When a woman’s body temperature drops by one degree Celsius in the 12 to 24 hours leading up to ovulation, ovulation has taken place.
You can see that she is fertile in this, so you know to keep your distance. All you have to do is learn as much as you can about your own body and cycle and act accordingly.
In general, a woman has the best chance of getting pregnant within the five days leading up to ovulation, on the day of ovulation, and the day after ovulation.
If you want to avoid contracting a disease through lovemaking, using condoms is a must in addition to the other precautions discussed here.
