Ask the Health Educator: Could I Get Pregnant My First Time?

Question from May 8, 2015

it was my first time, I had sex 1 week before I was supposed to start my period, could I still get pregnant?

Answer:

Yes, it is possible that you could have gotten pregnant. Anytime a person has sex, especially sex without a condom, it is possible to start a pregnancy. Come in as soon as possible for a pregnancy test and to start a method of birth control, if the pregnancy test result is negative.
