Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I was reading your column and you said that is was okay to have sex during your period. I heard that during your period, there is virtually no chance of you getting pregnant because there is no egg to fertilize. Is this true? If so, then you can have unprotected sex during your period, without the risk of getting pregnant, right? (I know you can still get STDs without protection, but is it true you can't get pregnant at this time?)

Dear DeLaney,

There's not just one day a month you can get pregnant. You are most fertile about 14 days BEFORE the onset of your next menstrual periodthis is when you ovulate. You are likely to get pregnant if you have intercourse several days before you ovulate, the day you ovulate, and a day or two after you ovulate. Do not count on this information to prevent pregnancy, however, as it is possible to ovulate more than one time in a monththis can even happen during your period. The point is that technically you can get pregnant anytime. If you are sexually active, don't take chances. Practice safer sex by always using a condomeven if you are on the pill. However, the only 100% way not to is to abstain and not have sex altogether.

Take care,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Some people are asking how a baby is made. I'd go read the My Life: Sex and Intimacy section to find that out.

You can get pregnant when having sex on your period so you have to use birth control to be safe, and the pill will protect you from getting pregnant and the condom will protect you from any STI's. I think we want to have sex more during this time because of our hormones and it probably feels just as good but I think period sex could be messy.

But what if you don't do sex? What if you're just on your cycle? Can you get pregnant then?
