It is never really "safe" to have intercourse without contraception if you do not want to get pregnant because it is possible to conceive at any time during your monthly cycle - even during menstruation.

Some days can be more "safe" than others but without knowing your own particular cycle, such as when you normally ovulate, you cannot know which the safer days are so, to be really "safe", you should always use contraception whatever the day.

Is it safe to intercourse before 12 days of period?

If you want to avoid pregnancy, then you need to know when you ovulate to know when the 'safe' days are. But typically, 12 days before your period would not be safe, as the luteal phase (the time after you ovulate until your period begins) is 10 to 14 (or more) days long, for a normal cycle. Thus, 12 days may put you in your most fertile period.

How do you calculate your safe period?

Safe period is not a continuous period in menstrual cycle. We know a woman is fertile only in the ovulatory period, and infertile in other days. And she can not has sexual intercourse in the menstrual period when she's bleeding. So the days in a menstrual cycle except menstrual period and ovulatory period is safe period. In safe period, a woman could has sexual intercourse and almost no chance to be pregnant. But it is not very reliable method for contraception because we cannot predict the next ovulation time precisely. Now we consider the first bleeding day as the first day of menstrual cycle. The days before the 7th day is very safe for contraception. If a woman stopped bleeding in 5 days, she has 2 days to have sexual intercourse without condom. And the last 4 to 5 days are also very safe. You could choose these days in safe period to avoid pregnancy. I suggest you user some software or online safe period calculator.
