Teen Safe Sex: Can I Get Pregnant If…

March 12, 2013

Can I get pregnant if…

Answers to some of the most common questions of teenagers who are sexually active. The short answer is YES, you can get pregnant in all of the following occasions. Explanations are below.

Can I get pregnant if my boyfriend ejaculates on my belly?

If your boyfriend inserted his penis in your vagina, then withdrew and ejaculated on your belly, YES, you can get pregnant. Your boyfriend may have withdrawn too late and some sperm may have been left in the vagina before he ejaculated on your belly.

If your boyfriend’s penis was not in or near your vagina any time before ejaculation, then NO, you probably cannot get pregnant.

Can I get pregnant if my boyfriend withdraws from me before ejaculating and puts his penis back in?

If your boyfriend withdrew from your vagina to ejaculate away from your vagina and inserted his penis back in after ejaculation, YES, you can get pregnant. There may be sperm remaining in your boyfriend’s penis when his penis entered your vagina again. Residual sperm can remain inside the penis after ejaculation for a few hours.

Can I get pregnant if I have sex when I am on my period?

If you have sex when you are on your period, YES, you can get pregnant. Sperm lasts for up to 7 days and you may ovulate early after your period.

Can I get pregnant if I don’t go all the way with my boyfriend?

If you and your boyfriend do not have sex and are only petting, kissing, hugging and performing oral sex, NO, you can’t get pregnant.

If there is genital contact and your boyfriend ejaculates in or near your vagina, YES, you can get pregnant because sperm from your boyfriend’s ejaculation can swim up the vagina into your uterus.

Can I get pregnant if my boyfriend pulls out before ejaculation?

If your boyfriend pulls out his penis (or withdraws his penis) before ejaculation, YES, you can get pregnant because pre-ejaculation secretions (or ‘pre-cum’) contain sperm.

Can I get pregnant if I douche after having sex?

If you douche straightaway after having sex, YES, you still can get pregnant. Sperm are strong swimmers and by the time you get to the bathroom, the sperm would already have fertilized your egg.

Can I get pregnant if it is the first time we have sex?

If you have penetrative sex at any time, YES, you can get pregnant. It does not matter whether it is your first time or your 50th time.

Can I get pregnant if I don’t orgasm?

If you have penetrative sex, YES, you can get pregnant even if you do not orgasm. How much pleasure you receive from having sex has nothing to do with your chances of pregnancy.

Can I get pregnant if I am on oral contraceptives or if my boyfriend uses a condom?

The chances of pregnancy will be reduced, but YES, you still can get pregnant as oral contraceptives and condoms are not 100% foolproof methods for preventing pregnancy.
