Can a girl get pregnant the first time she has sex? –
Yes, a girl can become pregnant the first time she has sex. Anytime a girl has
vaginal sex with a guy, she is at risk for becoming pregnant. Even if a guy ejaculates
outside of but near a girl's vagina or pulls out before he comes, a girl can get pregnant.
It's also possible to get a sexually
transmitted disease (STD) anytime you have sex, including the first time. Actually,
whenever people have any kind of sexual contact (oral, anal, or vaginal), they run
the risk of getting an STD.
Here are some ways to reduce your chance of pregnancy and STDs:
Abstinence. The only way to completely prevent pregnancy and STDs
is to abstain from all types of sex, including oral, vaginal, and anal sex.
Condoms to the rescue! If you are going to have sex, condoms
are the best way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Talk
with your partner beforehand and let him know that condoms are necessary,
not optional, even if you are using another form of birth control as well.
And always toss a back-up condom in your purse before you go out, just in case
he forgets one.
If you and your partner had unprotected sex (or a condom broke), see your doctor
for pregnancy and STD tests.
