I see you don't list your age or whether you are on a birth control. Some types of birthcontrol stop you from menustrating at all. I would think in that case as long as you are faithfully taking the med as prescribed, that the answer would be no, but if you haven't started your periods, & are very young, I would advice you to stop & think before engaging in sex at all. Abstinace is the best birth control. If the second is true, you may want to consult your doctor, or have your parent do this for you if you ae under 17. Just my thoughts... Mary
It is possible for someone to get pregnant even though they don't have a period. Many young teenage girls have gotten pregnant before they have had their first period. Also some adult women who have infrequent periods are able to get pregnant too. However, there are so many variables that you really should talk to your doctor. Sincerely-Taller
Your period doesnt have as much to do with pregnancy as much as if you ovulate. If you ovulate, you can get pregnant. Menstruation (or what women call the "period") is the cycle in which uterus is getting ready for a fertilized egg by building a nice, bloody, plushy lining for the fertilized egg to implant itself and begin to divide into cells that become baby and placenta. If an egg is not fertilized there is no need for the bloody, plushy lining and it is shed (we refer to this as menstruation or a womans "period") If a woman ovulates (or releases an egg) and that egg is fertilized by sperm, a woman can become pregnant. The uterus is not as hospitable if that lining isnt built but it is still possible that the fertilized egg can implant and become a baby and placenta. So, you see, it isnt so much a question of if a woman has a period but it is a question of if a woman is ovulating.
Birth control pills and Depo Provera are hormones that prevent a woman from ovulating but they also work to reduce that plushy lining to make the uterus less hospitable in case an egg is fertilized. They also change the cervical mucus to make it harder for sperm to "swim" up and fertilize an egg if one happens to be released so there is more than one mechanism at work with hormonal birth control. Since hormonal birth control reduces the build up of the uterine lining, the woman experiences a lighter period and in some cases, no period. Some women who are not on birth control but are very thin with very low body fat stop having periods because of their body fat being too low but they may still ovulate and there is still remote possiblity of pregnancy. If you are not having periods you need to see an OB-GYN doctor to find out why you are not having periods. there are many reasons why a woman may not have a monthly period. It can be lack of the right hormones, it can be lack of body fat and other reasons. Your Dr will need to determine if you are ovulating as well. I hope this has helped to answer your question.
