The purpose is to avoid intimacy at a time when a woman may become ritually impure due the onset of her period. Most women will anticipate the onset of their period according to three methods:

flowericon The exact Hebrew date their previous period began (Veset HaChodesh)
flowericonThe Average 30 day Cycle (Onah Beinonit)
flowericonCycle based on interval of time from one period to the next (Haflaga)
