Question: Max (12-14) asks…
Is it possible to get a girl pregnant if you have sex with her right after her period?

Answer: This is perhaps the easiest question asked yet. The answer: absolutely yes! Women have been known to get pregnant at all times in their cycle, and it’s best to assume that no time is safe. I do not recommend your having sex, but if you do, the best protection is to wear a condom. In fact, and it’s a big fact, and more important than the possibility of pregnancy, it’s best to wear one every single time in order to reduce the risk of contracting AIDS. And that can kill you.
