Counting the first day of

Counting the first day of menstruation as day 1, days 8 to 19 are the most likely fertile window. So, if your period is over after 5 days, then day 6 and 7 would be safe (if you want to avoid pregnancy), and the days after that would be a bit riskier. Assuming you have very regular cycles, the most risky days would be around day 12-14.

If you want to use this type of information as birth control, then read about the new Standard Days Method, an improved version of the calendar method. You can buy CycleBeads to help you keep track of fertile versus infertile days.
