Can you get pregnant if you haven't ever started your period yet but you've had sexual interaction?

Just wondering, nothing major

I'm not doing anything I just wanted to know. I actually worded the statement wrong also. I meant to say is there a chance that you could be pregnant if your partner hasn't hit puberty, you haven't started your period, and it happened like a month ago or a week ago so you know your period hasn't started. Also when I say starting your period I mean for the very first time, innitially starting it. Like I said nothing has happened or will happen until I am married. The types of interaction I am talking about are just rubbing of the penis on the vagina and actual penetration of the vagina by the penis. Just wondering. Still nothing major. I don'tvplan on doing these things even if you can't get pregnant which I'm almost sure you can right?

Hi yoyoyo
Thanks for the update!
If you are not doing any of the action you speak of, nor plan to, why are you asking? There are thousands of potentials in life but we try to focus on actual issues on EmpowHER.

Just remember that unprotected sexual (genital to genital) contact can lead to pregnancy. If you are not (nor plan on) doing this, then you have no worries.

If you and your "partner" have not even reached puberty, how old are you both? When you say "the types of interaction I am talking about are just rubbing of the penis on the vagina and actual penetration of the vagina by the penis." that last part means sexual intercourse and the first part CAN cause pregnancy. I'm a bit concerned that you do not understand sex and sexuality yet but are engaging in foreplay with a boy who has not reached puberty yet. Make sure you are fully educated before engaging in anything because it does sound like your behavior is (or may shortly be) risky.

What type of sexual interaction are you asking about? You asked a question about having "sexual interaction" last month, and since you are only 14, I am very concerned about what you are doing. Last month this was with your step-brother, and even though he is around your same age, this is still considered incest and is not a healthy relationship.

You absolutely can become pregnant if you have not had your period yet and are having sexual intercourse. Young women's menstrual cycles are irregular, and the timing could be that you have sex while you are ovulating, and then have your period the first time after sex. If you have unprotected sex while ovulating, you can become pregnant.

Please talk to a school counselor about your sexual health. You need to use a condom EVERY TIME you have any type of naked sexual interaction.

Please let us know more about what you are doing, what you are thinking about doing, and we can find some resources for you.
