    What?
    i saw it a site:

    What is the Rhythm Method?
    The rhythm method, also known as "fertility awareness," is a method of birth control that uses the menstrual cycle to predict your most fertile time of the month - that is when you are most likely to become pregnant. Once you have identified your most fertile time you simply don't have sex or use a barrier method of birth control during that time period.
    How does it work?

    Fertility awareness birth control methods are based on the fact that:
    • sperm may live in the female reproductive tract for up to 7 days
    • the female egg lives for only a day
    • fertilization may occur even days after intercourse
    • "safe days" occur 2 days after ovulation and continue until your next period
    safe days? what is your percentage of not pregnating the girl in those "safe days"? 87%?
    does it mean you can f# without the condoms on those safe days with a high chance of not impreg her?

    Let's start by saying any woman who is using the rythym method needs to be more aware of her body than most women are able to. It takes some true dedication to figure out when she is ovulating.
    Here is a great site on Natural Family Planning (also called the Rythym Method)
    http://www.ccli.org/
    Not all women ovulate on the same day within their cycle. Some ovulate on the 14th day one month and the 17th the next month.
    It is impossible to impregenate a woman if she has not recently ovulated.
    Please note that women CAN ovulate during their period also, so saying that a woman is 'safe' while she's bleeding is not true.
    Remember that tons of girls have a problem doing something as simple as taking a pill at the same time each day (or even taking it!), why would you trust them with this method?
    Here's another site on NFP including failure rates http://www.stanford.edu/group/SHPRC/ch6_nat.html
    edit: or like Quamen said, don't be stupid and wear a condom.

    those are the "safe days" they're talking about 2 days after ovulation?
