which is the safe period?

I have a regular period(28-29 days). Can you tell me which is the safe period for unprotected intercourse?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that there really isn't a safe period, because you can get pregnant at almost any time in your cycle.
There is an excellent website that you might want to check out though:
http://nfpandmore.org -- the natural family planning site -- it explains the cycle and you can even download charts, etc for the best timing.
Don't forget about emergency contraception too--Plan B and Next Choice are two options in the US.
Good luck!
