Can you get pregnant the first time?

People can get pregnant the first time they have penis-vagina sex.  Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are also possible the first time for many kinds of sex.

Sex Friendly Manitoba has a lot of information about how to prevent STIs.  If you are thinking of becoming sexually active or currently sexually active, discuss with a doctor or nurse the ways to prevent pregnancy and STIs or the steps to a healthy pregnancy.

SERC’s website has some great info on birth control and pregnancy. You can also reach out to Women’s Health Clinic’s birth control and pregnancy counselling program for a one-on-one conversation.

Hope this is helpful!
