Question for Betty.

Can a virgin fall pregnant after having sex for one week without taking pills?

Betty's Answer.


Yes, you can get pregnant and expose yourself to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) any time you have unprotected sex.  It only takes one time of unprotected intercourse for this to happen.  You can protect yourself with condom use.  You can also use Plan B within 5 days of intercourse. The sooner you take Plan B, the more effective it is. Make an appointment with your health care provider or the SHCC for a pregnancy test, contraceptive counseling and STI testing.
