What Is a Sexologist Doctor?

A sexologist specialist who studies human sexuality from a biological, medical, psychological, social or anthropological aspect. This is a relatively new field. It is not necessary for all sexologists to be a medicine graduate. It can be studied as a subspecialty of psychiatry or social psychology. Medical doctors who pursue a specialization in sexology are allowed to prescribe and treat patients with sexual health issues.

Safe Period to Have Sex

Ovulation and Safe Period: What is the Safe Period to Have Sex?
What is Safe Period?

It is the period when supposedly a woman has the least chance of getting pregnant. Women go through monthly changes in their body in the name of the menstrual cycle. A monthly cycle has two components:

  • Proliferating phase: This is the period which begins soon after the menstrual bleeding starts.
  • Secretory phase: This is a constant period of 14 days, which you can count as 14 days before you get your periods.

By no means, it provides a complete protection against pregnancy, since it has been seen that the intercourse itself may trigger untimely ovulation.

You can use our safe days calculator to find out the safe days in your cycle for this month easily.

What is the Unsafe Period (Fertile Days)?
