Is this safe sex?

Question:

If a woman has an irregular period, like if it comes every second or third month, can she have unprotected sex right after her period without any risk of getting pregnant? Because if it's right after your period, you can't be ovulating again that soon.

Curious, 23-year-old woman

Answer:

Dear Curious:

I would suggest playing it safe and using protection anyway. The reason for this is because birth control is not only for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. It is also for the purpose of protecting yourself from sexually transmitted diseases. Of course, not every form of birth control will protect against STD's. For example, the pill will not protect you from disease but will protect you from pregnancy. Consider this question: Because birth control methods are so readily available, and this includes free samples from public health clinics, why would you want to risk having unprotected sex? Talk with your health care provider. Take care.
