It is possible to get pregnant even though you haven't had your first period yet. Your very first period flushes the lining of your uterus and that lining may or may not contain a viable egg. If it did happen to include a viable egg, then for some period of time prior to your first period, sperm could fertilize the egg and you could become pregnant. Having sex as a minor is ill-advised for any number of reasons: * It is harmful to your psychological development * Risk of sexually-transmitted diseases * Risk of pregnancy
