Can a Girl Get Pregnant if She Has Never Had Her Period?
Can I get pregnant if I've never had my period? – Ariana
Yes, a girl can get pregnant before she gets her first period.
Getting pregnant is related to ovulation.
Because a girl can ovulate before having her first period, it is possible to become
pregnant if she has sex.
Pregnancy isn't the only concern about having sex — any time a girl has sex,
especially unprotected sex, she runs the risk of getting a sexually
transmitted disease (STD) (also called a sexually transmitted infection,
Abstinence (not having
sex) is the only way to completely prevent STDs or unwanted pregnancy. Condoms are the only type of birth control that offers protection
against STDs, but they're not as good at preventing pregnancy as other kinds
of birth control. Girls
get the best protection if they use a condom every time they have sex, and
also use a hormonal method of birth control (like the Pill).
If you have ever had sex, or are thinking about having sex, talk with your doctor
about birth control options, STD
testing, and ways to prevent STDs.
If you've had unprotected sex, a condom
broke, or you used birth control but haven't had your period, see your doctor
immediately to get tested for pregnancy and STDs.
