The menstrual cycle (period) is necessary in a woman's life to become pregnant. However, she does not have to be on her period to get pregnant. Approximately, two weeks after a woman has her period, she releases an egg. This process is known as ovulation. If the egg is fertilized, by a man, about two weeks after her period, there is a possibility pregnancy can occur. However, if a female has not hit puberty yet and does not have her menstrual cycle, she cannot get pregnant.

The above was the first answer, which needs correcting.

In the time leading up to a girl's very first period: she can get pregnant since there is no way of predicting when her first ovulation will occur.

Or put another way, scenario style:

- The girl has ovulated for the first time.

- She has sex with a boy/man

- He may or may not ejaculate, but as there has been sexual contact, sperm

can be present even without ejaculation

- Sperm meets egg

and there you have it. pregnant without even having had the first period.

Best to steer clear, or if you must, then use a condom. But since most girls start when they are regarded as minors, please do not go there..........
