CAN YOU GET PREGNANT YOUR FIRST TIME?

Dear Sugar
I had unprotected sex for the first time. Following that episode, I didn't get my period. Then one day, out of the blue, I got it …but it only lasted for one day. Is there a chance that I am pregnant? Slipped Up Sloane

To see DEARSUGAR’s answer

Dear Slipped Up Sloane
Have you taken a pregnancy test? If you’ve missed a period, then you definitely need to take one immediately. If it’s positive, then you must go and see a physician right away. It is common to spot, or experience a short, scant period throughout the implantation stage. Implantation is when the egg and sperm meet and implant themselves into your uterus. Are you having any of the following symptoms?

  • Breasts that are sore, tender or swollen
  • You feel sick to your stomach or you are vomiting
  • Fatigue – feeling more tired than usual
  • The need to urinate more often than usual
  • Mood swings
  • If so, please consult the advice of a physician. This is one problem that isn’t going to work itself out. Look at how scared you right now. Think about having a baby for a little while. Maybe you should rethink your reasons for having unprotected sex. You are taking a big risk with the responsibilities that go along with all of this.

yes, it's possible that you're pregnant as sugar stated. if you find out that you're not, i suggest that you go on some form of birth control (pill, nuva ring. avoid patch and depo) AND use condoms. if you find yourself in this situation again, take the morning after pill ASAP (within 3 days, max 5) of unprotected relations.

I agree with pinkangelmonkey and t0xxic. If you don't know the answer to these kinds of questions, you shouldn't be having sex. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but it only takes one time to get pregnant. If you're going to be sexually active you should be on the pill and be using condoms, just in case. You're asking for trouble if you have sex without a condom and you aren't on the pill...unless you want kids. Good luck with everything though.

PAM I agree. Im sticking to my answer of if ur worried about being pregnant or need to ask this dont have sex. Stress will make ur period late. The only way to know is take a test uf ur still worried go see a dr or a clinic. If ur to young and need to ask parental consisent then once again u shouldnt be having sex. I dont mean to seem rude but I am a pregnancy Chat moderator/ room owner on AOL and we deal with this all the time. Pregnancy symptoms go along with menstural symptoms. There fore if forgetting protection is possible and ur thinking ur mature enuf get a pill shot or patch.

its sad when ppl dont know the answer to these kinds of ?'s. im not knocking someone for not knowing i just find it sad that people arent being informed of the statistics and realities that come along with sex. i think unprotected sex is also when any or both involved dont know the consequences and responsibilities that come with being sexually active!

You absolutly can get pregnant the first time. Ask my mom, that how I was conceived. Take a pregnancy test now. Find one that says earliest detection. If negative, wait a week and take another. If you are not pregnant and you want to continue having sex go to a free clinic/or talk to your parents and get on the pill and then in addition to the pill make your boyfriend use a condom. If a man really cares about you and himself he will use a condom. If he gives you a hard time about it he is not worth trusting your heart or your body with.

I completely agree with Sugar in that you need to re-think having unprotected sex not only could you end up with a baby, but you could end up with an STD or worse!!

i had the same thing happen to me when i was in high-school, except the condom broke!! i didn't have a period for 2 months after that!! i was freaked, and took a pregnancy test every week, but they always came up negative. it was a horrible coincedence that my period decided to be freaky right after that, but that's all it was! So def do what sugar says and take a test PRONTO!

Wow buy an EPT pronto, I mean STAT. I've had a few of those scares before when I first started having sex. Luckily they were just scares but we'd need to know how many days late is your period now? Oh well. Do what Sugar says and take care.
